Rep. John “Porky Pig in Fatigues” Murtha and ABSCAM (AKA: Abdul Scam)
Though the name “Abscam“, short for “Abdul scam“, was seen as offensive by some Arab-Americans, the name stuck. The FBI handed out cloth patches (see above) for the sting operation to team members. The patch showed a bee with a turban on.
Rep. John “Porky Pig in Fatigues” Murtha is a *CROOK*, *LIAR*, *PHONEY*, *Con Artist*, and an insult to anyone who has wore a Military Uniform that represents America!!!
I have recently wrote about Reserves Colonel John “Jack” Murtha, in “Haditha, Iraq…and, John Murtha”, and had wondered how come he had so much combat experience, as a Officer in the “S-2 Intelligence Section”. Now, humble Low and Ignorant Insane swamp hermit me is finding that there are lots of other questions about his Military Record…for example: his Purple Hearts.
Today, I found out that Rep. John “Porky Pig in Fatigues” Murtha was also involved in the infamous *ABSCAM* political scandal, back around 1980. Today’s article, by Robert Novak got me searching some more on Rep. John “Porky Pig in Fatigues” Murtha…so to speak of the following ‘Shortlist’ of many results:
This brief ‘Video’ of Murtha even responding to an undercover FBI agent’s (a member of the *ABSCAM* “Surveillance Team”) mentioning of having gone “out and got 50,000”, tells a *LOT*.
1) Pay close attention to Murtha’s *EMPHASIS* of, “At THIS Point”, and compare that to his preceding words.
2) Murtha’s “preceding words” were rather low-key, as in “I’m not interested.” Followed by a very ‘sheepishly’ low-key apology, as in “I’m sorry.”
Murtha knows that he is being offered money, so why is he even listening at this point?!? I have searched for the full video (videos?! – apparently there was more than one, in my humble opinion), but this ‘blip’ was all, and more than enough. Apparently, when Murtha turned FBI “*RAT*”, the FBI let him off…so to speak.
The search led elsewhere, also. Yes, *ABSCAM* happened some 26-years ago, but “Porky Pig in Fatigues” happened in 2005, so a Modus Operandi is formed:
modus operandi (mode-us ah-purr-and-ee or ah-purr-and-eye) n. from Latin, a criminal investigation term for “way of operating,” which may prove the accused has a pattern of repeating the same criminal acts using the same method. Examples: a repeat offender always wore a blue ski mask and used a sawed-off shotgun, climbed up trellises to burglarize, pretended to be a telephone repairman to gain entrance, or set up phony companies to disguise a fraudulent scheme.
In some 26-years, Rep. John “Porky Pig in Fatigues” Murtha has been unable to change his Modus Operandi, and that speaks *VOLUMES* of/about his so-called ‘character’…so to speak of FBI “*RAT’s*” and a *REAL* History of Political Corruption…at best.
