Powerline Blog: Pentagon Says CBS Memos Fake!
Powerline Blog ^ | Sept. 11, 2004 | FOX News

Posted on 09/11/2004 6:49:56 PM PDT by West Coast Conservative

According to Powerline Blog, this was reported on FOX News:

KELLY WRIGHT: Tony, here's the latest that we're finding out on this story. At least three Pentagon sources believe the documents about President Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard are fakes. CBS as you mentioned is standing by its story...

I bet it pained Kelly Wright to have to say that.

Rather will have to report this since he promised that if there were any evidence to rebut his claim that they are genuine, they will report it.

Rumsfeld vs Rather.

I heard this earlier today. Three Pentagon officials made statements that these documents were false.

I hope Terry McAuliffe decides to take them on. Really.

I'd think twice before I'd disparage Kelly Wright. I've seen no problems with him. Remember, he works for Fox, not the RNC. He's been fair and balanced as far as I am concerned.

Then again, I have a grudge against Wendell Goler for not waving to me when I passed him at the White House a few years back. I hold a long grudge.

Some people have pointed to the selectric typewriter as evidence that it could have been used to produce the proportionally spaced text.

This is impossible and easy to show.

Page 108 of the below doc gives the width of each character in units independent of point size.

http://www.ibmcomposer.org/docs/Selectric%20Composer%20Operations%20Manual.pdf

Now take a look at the 18 August 1973 memo. Compare the length of the words "Bush's" and "period".

With the Selectric, "Bush's" should be 7+6+4+6+3+4=30 units long and
"period" should be 6+5+4+3+6+6=30 units long. So they should be equal in length.

It clear, however, that in the CBS document, "Bush's" extends beyond "period". Hence the Selectric could not have been used to create the memo.

This is stupid as hell move if it's true.

If CBS's source gives the go ahead to reveal where they came from or they present other evidence they are authentic, this is going to EXPLODE in Bush's face.

That's why McLellan and the admin itself has been careful not to say they are fakes.

Stupid stupid STUPID!

#10..That's what I thought too when I first read the post...

..but consider he/she could have been 'tongue in cheek' speaking....

...he didn't mean Wright really was pained.

That's my interpretation and I'm sticking to it :^

>>>Then again, I have a grudge against Wendell Goler...

He's the one I wonder about on FoxNews...with him, it's "President Clinton", sometimes with 'former' in front of it. Now...however, with the current WH occupant, it's "The President" or "Mr. Bush" - rarely, if ever has he said "President Bush" - it's like he has some sort of aversion to saying it...

Unlike Republicans who admit error when confronted, the Democrat Rather Biased will NEVER admit a mistake -- even with proof before his eyes! After all, he is a Texas Democrat at heart still.

Fat ass Dan has to go NOW. There has to be a complete Congressional and Attorney General, Special Prosecutor investigation to find out if Kerry, or his dog TerAza or their lizard CarVILE or their lapdog Johnboy Opie Edwards created the docs. Or maybe fat ass danny forrgery will fall on the sword. This is HUGE.

You've GOT to be kidding! Kelly Wright is one of the best reporters FOX has. He's the only one who, when in Baghdad, actually went out and found good news stories to report. He's wonderful.

Kelly Wright is one of the good guys. He used to work for the local affiliate here. I've seen him outside of the "news" thing and he's absolutely delightful. He was in the Army and absolutely respects our military. He's an ordained minister and has a powerful message for all kids.

SO? Perhaps you know something about him that I don't.
