Killian Memos Crumpled and Smoothed Out
little green footballs ^ | 9/14/04 | lawhawk

Posted on 09/14/2004 8:00:51 PM PDT by finnman69

Several LGF readers emailed to say that if you open one of the CBS News Killian memos in Photoshop and adjust the levels, crumple marks show up on the paper. So I tried it, and here’s the result:

This was probably done by the incredibly inept forger to increase the apparent “age” of the document, and to make the text appear more ragged.

I’ll bet that if the real printed originals of these documents ever turn up (say, in a dumpster behind MoveOn.org headquarters), they’ll find the idiot’s fingerprints on them.

Good work. Another piece in the puzzle.

I thought this was an intersting piece of forensic analysis that could come in handy.

This might explain why the MS Word docs don't match the copied forgeries perfectly, although they already are extremely close to perfect matches.

Seems to me forging government documents is probably a crime. Isn't it time for the FBI to look into this?

If done with a "plug-in" filter for a Photoshop-type app (PS, PSP, for example), one can make any image appear as if it was printed on a crumpled piece of paper.

It's simple. It's quick.

It's yet another reason SeeBS is showing how out-of-touch they are, not only with the truth, but with the basics of the digital age in which we live.

It's all reminding me of the Magritte painting of a pipe that reads (in French), "This is not a pipe."

SO the original was crumpled up before it was smoothed out and photo copied? DId someone take it out of a trash can? Was it crumpled up to make it look like it was taken out of a trash can or just to make it look "used"?

They just forgot to pour tea on it and gnaw at the edges ala Schindler's List with the Blauschein.

CBS still hasn't said what media they received the forgeries in: printed, faxed, or digital; if digital, what format?

Im thinking those Freepers out there who are good with photo shop should start adjusting contrast on ALL of the documents.

If there is the same wrinkle pattern on all of the documents it could mean the documents were all wadded up together at the same time. And that could mean either nothing or that they were intentionally wadded up together at the same time.

Exactly as some on here predicted had occurred.

Good post.

Can someone check the contrast on the other docs and see if they same pattern exists, or even better, if it does exist, it is a match?

The lead expert retained by CBS News to examine disputed memos from President Bush's former squadron commander in the National Guard said yesterday that he examined only the late officer's signature and made no attempt to authenticate the documents themselves.

"There's no way that I, as a document expert, can authenticate them," Marcel Matley said in a telephone interview from San Francisco. The main reason, he said, is that they are "copies" that are "far removed" from the originals.

Is it a hate crime?
