Kevin Drum, the most talented of the left-wing bloggers, wrote: "This story is a perfect demonstration of the difference between the Swift-boat controversy and the National Guard controversy. Both are tales from long ago and both are related to Vietnam, but . . . in the National Guard case, practically every new piece of documentary evidence provides additional confirmation that the charges against Bush are true."

Well, Kevin, not quite. It appears that your boy's "proof" isn't worth the paper it was lasered onto, while the Swifties have made Kerry, with his own words, recant important segments of his Walter Mitty life in Vietnam.

Leave it to the Left to get it exactly and precisely backwards.

A little dance music:

Weeeee are the Champions, mah Freeeeyahhhnds,
And WEEeeee'll keep on fighting til the end (Doo doot doo dooooooooo)
WEEEeeee are the Champions
WEEEEEEEEE are the Champions
NO time for LOOOSers
Cause WEEEEE are the Champions
Of the wooooorld...

Killian DID write those memos. He said so. He told Eleanor Roosevelt, who then relayed it to Hillary.

As this hideous CBS thing gets more air time,

I'm feeling increasingly sobered and reminded to pray more for FREEREPUBLIC.COM, JIM AND FAMILY.

It just doesn't make sense to me that given our increasing clout in the political arena in this critical election

--that the puppet masters would continue to ignore us. And these characters play for keeps and have incredible power to do so with.

Thankfully, God is God and has all in His control and is infinitely and supremely powerful.

But I believe we must be responsible to pray for FR and Jim and his family increasingly as the months race by toward even more end-times related dramatic events.

Not just the USA, but the world needs FR to be a potent beacon as long as possible.

Let us be diligent in our praying accordingly.

Maybe this has been stated already but, James Rosen just said that FNC has been on the phone with Killian's son and would have something on that today. Stay tuned.

I also wonder if the White House (anonymously) could use FR

Bad idea.

freerepublic == herding cats

Freerepublic == circular firing squads

Too free for all.

"I'd bet the forger is a male, dis-affected, DU type that was born after 1978. (if anyone wants to start a pool)"

I am guessing it might be Ben Barnes. A woman claiming to be his daughter called a radio talk show and said he was lying about using his influence to get Bush into the Guard, in order to promote a book on the subject he has coming out. We know he is lying because Bush entered the Guard in 1968 and Barnes didn't become TX. Lt. Governor until 1969.

If he is going to lie about that, what does he have to lose by forging the documents and bringing CBS the whole package. He seems like an idiot too, so it wouldn't surprise me that he doesn't know a thing about proportional fonts, or superscript, or the differences between 70's era typewriters and Computer word processing software.

First it was Sarin Gas on CNN
Then it was AP falsely reporting boos at a Bush rally
Now it's phony documents on CBS
Is that Roy Orbison sing "It's Over" in the background?

Maybe "60 Minutes" should have tried another expert or two.

Judging by Bernie Goldberg's book "Bias," describing the modus operandi of CBS News, I suspect that they consulted dozens of experts until they found one who would say what they wanted.

The collective IQ at FreeRepublic is a very big number.

In fact, the exponent on that number is itself a very big number!

While the exponent on the Collective IQ at DU is a very big number, it is also negative.

TankerKC's post is gone.

Yeah, I get a 404.

What's with that?

This is from another tab that I had open when I saw your post:

To: Howlin


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 the ones they just showed.

Can we get a copy of those memos?

in all fairness i think it was a conclusion that immediately entered many people's heads. As some one who lived in Africa for many years Bin Laden was a household name from when the US embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam were bombed in August, 1998...
