Is Okinawa Jack Murtha a Traitor, Or Just Stupid?

Jack [1]Lost in the frenzy over the melt down of the murder charges over Haditha looms a question.  The government knew, or should have known, that the Haditha incident was a statged propaganda event by al Qaeda.  Nathaniel R. Helms, Defend Our Marines [2]:

October 6, 2007 – Buried in the mountain of exhibits attached to the once secret Haditha, Iraq murder inquiry prepared by US Army Maj. Gen. Eldon A. Bargewell is an obscure Marine Corps intelligence summary (see pdf [3]) that says the deadly encounter was an intentional propaganda ploy planned and paid for by Al Qaeda foreign fighters.

Did Okinawa Jack’s hysterical charges [4]of murder consistute treason [5]?  The charges were false and Murtha knew, or should have known, the charges were false.  Is sheer stupidity a defense against treason?
