Not Defending the Indefensible

An editorial in USA Today appropriately criticizes U.S. Representatives John Murtha (D-PA), Bill Young (R-FL), and Jim Moran (D-VA) for adding earmarks to a defense appropriation bill. These are items that Congress, through the efforts of these representatives, would force the Pentagon to pay for even though the Pentagon does not want them.

As they normally do, USA Today invited the three Congressmen to respond. Tellingly, they all declined.
