Do a search on the word "Vietnam" and you'll find the two quotes below (pages 61 & 130 when printed)
"However, Mapes had information prior to the airing of the September 8 Segment that President Bush, while in the TexANG, did volunteer for service in Vietnam but was turned down in favor of more experienced pilots.72 For example, a flight instructor who served in the TexANG with Lieutenant Bush advised Mapes in 1999 that Lieutenant Bush did want to go to Vietnam but others went first. Similarly, several others advised Mapes in 1999, and again in 2004 before September 8, that Lieutenant Bush had volunteered to go to Vietnam but did not have enough flight hours to qualify." - page 140 on computer
"Mapes eventually tracked down Lieutenant Colonel Killians son who, according to her notes, told her that then-Lieutenant Bush had volunteered for active duty in Vietnam but did not have enough flight hours to qualify." - page 71 on computer
"No One But Bush" - my pre-11-2-04 slogan
So they made up a bad story about Bush and covered up a good story about him. That's a double media bias whammy!!
CBS should be shut down. for two years they acted as a 527 and not a news channel.
It's all too little and too late.
Moonves said it right...the juice is gone.
They are finished. The rats are leaving the sinking ship.
Political agenda ? CBS ? Come on be serious. These guys are straight arrows. Your joking right ?
I wish I could remember where, but I read that when Bush joined the Air National Guard, he had every expectation that he'd go to Vietnam. And when Kerry joined the Navy, he had every expectation he wouldn't go.
Try a search on "Kerry" and "deferments"...someone is bound to have it, in this informational age.
I also heard that Kerry got four deferments, but was denied the fifth one, and that's when he went...interesting, of course, because all Kerry and the compliant media wanted to talk about, was the four deferments that VPOTUS got.
I guess it's just "wishful thinking" on my part that this story would get "legs" and we'd get the TRUTH for all to see.
I think this is the most stunning and damaging information in the entire report.
It must be, the MSM hasn't mentioned it.
Everyone at CBS News should be fired.
That's exactly what I thought of him too!
I bet you missed the irony of your comment "cOME ON BE SERIOUS":
C ome on
I want to know WHO wrote these fake memo's?????
Don't forget they also refused to give credence to any of the Swiftboat information.
That's a Hat Trick in my book.
There was a similar thread yesterday and I posted the articles that demonstrated that we here at FR knew ages ago that President Bush volunteered for Vietnam.
If we knew, so did CBS.
It's plain they sought to air a completely deceitful story from start to finish, for partisan reasons.
See "The Panel"? It's really quite simple.
I wish I was that Clever at Being Sarcastic. But then maybe I can be.
ROFLMAO! I mean REALLY..........LOL.
