We now have forged US military records that were aimed at undermining the US election process and bringing down the President of the United States .

That is disturbing!
If it is not prosecuted, it will definitely be repeated.
I have been wondering about this too. Maybe there IS an investigation.
i think it is up to the state to do this. the AT of texas is the responsible adult in this case.
How do you know there isn't one?
And where is the criminal investigation by the Texas Attorney General's office?
Revolutionary woman Mary Mapes may be able to answer that. (One of her motivations for going into, uhm, journalism.) Short answer: because journalists are almost never prosecuted and jailed. Even less often than politicians.
For the same reason Sandy Berger isn't being grilled or arrested
GOP are scared of the MSM
A lady called and asked Rush about the investigation status of Sandy 'OopsIFilledMyPants' Berger. Rush opined that no further action will be taken until after the election. Annoying, but probably true in both cases.
The Justice Department was no part in political fights. It would be a circus.
It is a political season. The minute Ashcroft steps out on stage, he becomes the issue, not CBS. There's no rush. Let Thornburgh and Boccardi do their investigation, then deal with it after the election.
From what I gathered almost any state can start an investigation... any state that aired the CBS piece. However there is a good chance that Texas will start something or already has been doing some legwork in this.
Because it would seem political, make Rather a victim, fighting for the freedom of the press. Hopefully, after the election something will be done.
Ah, but the signature on them was forged.
I agree, and if they think the heat is off maybe they will be stupid enough to try something again. More fuel for after the election.
In the long run, history will remember Bush as a true gentleman leader with commitment to a vision of expanding freedom and liberty. Dan Rather will be remembered as a very small and shallow personality at best.
It is time the Republicans got serious about the laws of the land and not let the democrats get away with this stuff any longer.
His guess is that because it's an election year.....and would be too much of a distraction....everybody is laying low for now.
Maybe this is why we're not hearing much about the Feds looking into Memogate?
An investigation could possibly backfire on Bush if people perceive he's "sic" ing the Feds on Kerry. But, I do think after the Election the Feds will launch an investigation. Who knows? Maybe they already are and we're just not hearing about it.
..because everyone knows they are fake and knows why they were used...no investigation necessary! :-)
