Former President Ford Dead at 93

The now longest-living President of the United States (surpassing Ronald Reagan) Gerald Rudolph Ford, has passed away at the age of 93.

Ford’s wife Betty announced his passing in a statement saying he “died peacefully”, but no cause of death was announced.

Ford had been suffering from a variety of health problems, and in August underwent an “angioplasty procedure to reduce or eliminate blockages in his coronary arteries.”

Funeral arrangements are still to be announced.

Marine Charged in Haditha "Massacre"

Reuters is reporting that Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich has been charged with 13 counts of murder for his possible role in killing unarmed Iraqis last year in Haditha, Iraq.

“Wuterich led a squad at the center of the probe into the November 19, 2005, shooting of 24 unarmed men, women and children in the western Iraqi town. It is one of a series of cases in which U.S. service members have been accused, and in some cases convicted, of involvement in killing civilians.”

Looks like the right-wingers owe the ever prescient John Murtha an apology.
