Skip to comments.Exclusive Interview with [TankerKC] About the Authenticity of the CBS Documents
Posted on 09/11/2004 3:52:19 PM PDT by optimistically_conservative
This is an exclusive interview with FreeRepublic commenter TankerKC, the first known person to express any doubts on the internet about the authenticity of the CBS documents....
A little background: the media has reported that a FreeRepublic.com commenter named Buckhead expressed the first doubts on the internet about the (possibly) forged CBS documents. But Buckhead himself correctly notes that the very first doubts were expressed by another FreeRepublic commenter called TankerKC. As Buckhead explained on a FreeRepublic forum board:
Victory in this case justly has a thousand fathers. Tanker KC first pegged them as fakes by the overall look, and I later noted the font issue. Many other defects have been noted by others.Buckhead is correct: TankerKC was indeed the first known person to express any concern regarding the memos' authenticity. In this post, which he put up during the program, after briefly seeing the documents on the TV screen, TankerKC noted an issue with the signature blocks:
WE NEED TO SEE THOSE MEMOS AGAIN!This comment was posted at 5:19 PDT -- 7:19 in TankerKC's Central Time Zone, as he explains here. Having seen the documents briefly on a TV screen, TankerKC had not had a chance to examine the more detailed discrepancies with the fonts -- issues which were raised several hours later, by Buckhead, in this post.
They are not in the style that we used when I came in to the USAF. They looked like the style and format we started using about 12 years ago (1992). Our signature blocks were left justified, now they are rigth of center...like the ones they just showed.
Can we get a copy of those memos?

Excellent work by all who exposed the dastardly deeds of the SeeBS villains!!!
Ol' Jermiah Jewett is your typical arrogant obnoxiuos little left-winger, isn't he?
Yeah, but he got slammed by Ed Jordan:
Jeremiah Jewett wrote: "Here's all you need to know: One candidate served; the other ran."
Geesh! Talk about living in the past! Jeremiah, stop rehashing the 1996 Dole-Clinton contest.
Nobody comes close!
Good job by the way. You started the whole ball rolling.
