CONGRESSMAN JOHN MURTHA and Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA), hold a joint town hall meeting with soldiers who served in Afghanistan and Iraq. Most of the soldiers' comments about their experiences and their feelings about the war were negative; but Fox News broadcasts only the first comment, from a soldier who served in Afghanistan, feels very good about it, and would do it again.

One of the most significant points about this meeting is the outpouring of support the U.S. troops there expressed for Murtha, who is currently getting the Swift Boat treatment from a conservative web site run by one David Thibault, editor-in-chief of the Cybercast News Service.

The Huffington Post posts some of the dissenting soldiers' comments, and links to the full broadcast at C-SPAN.
