Skip to comments.Yet Another CBS Document Experiment (CBS file vs. Word document) [perfect match]
Posted on 09/10/2004 10:25:49 PM PDT by Cableguy
Here is the result if I print the Microsoft Word document I created to a PDF file:
Here is the CBS News original:
And here is the result if I overlay the CBS News original on my Word-created PDF file:
As you can see, its an even better match than the Word screenshots Ive been using previously.
The superscript th in 187th now lines up perfectly with the CBS News original.
The correspondence is so exact that in the center of the image (the focal point of the fax/copier machine that was probably used to age it) you cannot see any differences at all.
All the evidence is MOOT, except the overlay.
The matching of the memo and the Word printout overlay being so perfect is a simple, 100% perfect proof that the memo is a fraud. The fact that you have to print out the Word document to get the exact match -- the fact that the screen shots do not match, shows how unlikely it is to get a perfect match. My older version of Word does not come close. This, and this alone, is overwhelming proof of fraud.
Have all four of the memos have been overlaid with their Word printouts? Is there a link to them?
Thanks in advance
Fantastic! Liberate America from the occupation media! Viva La Revolucion!
I typed up the document in Word. If you want it, you can get it here.
It is notable that they used the default font (Times New Roman) and the default tab stops ("18" in "18 August" appears right above the "." after "Bush"). If they really wanted this to look old, they would have gone with a font like Courier, not the default. This is clearly an amateur hack job.
It depends on what the meaning of "th" th.
There are amateurs who could have done a better job than this. It's so bad, it's a masterpiece.
When are we going to see this for what it really is? A distraction from that which requires the focus and attention of every U.S. voter. Who has led us well in the last 4 years? Who has been a staunch advocate of freedom and liberty in the last 4 years? Who has a record as commander-in-chief that we can rely on in this war on terror, based on what we have witnessed and experienced in the last 4 years?
Now, who has spent 19 years in the Senate, but didn't show up for over 50% of Senate votes, yet when he actually did make it to the floor to vote, voted AGAINST vital defense and security issues?
This is a smokescreen, folks! The liberals and their media will be exposed (AGAIN), but don't let them take your attention off what really matters!
Has anyone looked at the data inside the PDF files that CBS posted? I don't have a copy of them, but I'd like to open them with a text editor. It might have more clues.
At first blush, the flaw here may be the term CYA, which as far as I know, wasn't commonly in use in 1973. Anyone have any etymological history on this?
by the way, am i the only one struck by the following sentence in what is purported to be a cover your ass memo to file?: "i'll backdate but won't rate."
think about it.
here's a guy who is trying to cover his ass, who creates a written, signed confession that he's complicit in falsifying documents (viz., the date thereof).
as an attorney, i can state categorically that the actual date that a document was created/signed is sometimes the most important fact appertaining thereto.
so ... yeah. right. this killian writes a memo memorializing his fraud to save him from future trouble?
i don't think so.
by the way, as one who has used every generation of word processing equipment since the ibm selectric, there is no question whatsoever in my mind that the documents were created by relatively modern technology, probably exactly as cableguy demonstrates hereinabove.
this is not, of course, to say that it is impossible that these documents were in fact created by michaelangelo using pen and ink or perhaps a paintbrush ... he was, after all, very talented.
probably created by some little punk ass cal poly computer grad too stupid and full of himself to understand that the output from typewriters and that from modern desktop publishing equipment patently differ.
you'd think his betters would have caught the error, though.
but ... maybe none of them ever worked in an office.
maybe none of them ever worked.
That one's a classic!
Quick question...on another thread someone was asking me what OETR stands for?
You'll get a better match if you matched the type on the first word... the forgery has it as 'Standt' instead of 'Staudt'.
Yea and the scary fact is if the moron that faked this has just done it on an old typewriter instead of in Word(just dumb)then CBS would have gotten away with it.... just scary how these press propaganda bastardies can lie and people buy
sorry sounded like gabby johnson from blazzing saddles I see the scooby in it now.
OETR = Military Acronym.. " Officer Education Training Record"..
Many thanks...I need it on another thread.
