    Defense Official Contradicts Murtha Claim that Petraeus Didn't 'Talk to Any of Us'
    By Mark Finkelstein

    (CNSNews.com) - Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) this week criticized Gen. David Petraeus for not meeting with members of Congress during a recent visit to Washington, D.C., to report on the status of operations in Iraq, but not only did the commander of Multinational Force - Iraq meet with hundreds of lawmakers, he personally briefed Murtha himself.

    Murtha told MSNBC's Chris Matthews on Tuesday, "They bring Petraeus back - purely political move. Petraeus comes back here. He doesn't talk to any of us. He only talks to the news media and so forth trying to sell this program."

    But a senior Defense Department official told Cybercast News Service that Petraeus personally briefed Murtha and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in an April 24 phone conference that lasted 20-30 minutes.

    The following day, Petraeus conducted two 90-minute, top-secret level operations intelligence briefings for representatives and senators.

    The real problem is that Murtha lied.

    The real problem is that Bush lied, which has resulted in the deaths of thousands.
