Kudos again to FR, Buckhead, Howlin, Texasforever, NYCVirago, and of course Jim for having this site to begin with.
"Chapter 9 "We're Toast" pg 143 - 145 directly credits Freepers above with uncovering the "missing Documents" out of President Bush's National Guard Service that were distinctly unflattering to the President, and also flat forgeries.
I am reading the book at the moment, and I wanted to pause and give credit where credit is due. I thank all those who helped bring to light these roaches that considered themselves so important as to try to influence a Presidential Election. I thank all of you personally who were influential in finally getting to call the MSM on the carpet, SUCCESSFULY! Bill Sammon has immortalized you in print, you are all immortal in my heart, you were the tipping point in an election. I am eternally grateful! You have done this Nation a service that can not be quantified.
No IBFZ! I am serious! This is a really good book! Sammon has done three books from the inside of the Bush administration. All of which I recomend! VERY pro-Bush!
No Zot Please!
OMGGG we are famousss
We didn't sleep with Frank Sinatra OOPS wrong reset LOL! I think of Kitty Kelley NEVER MIND LOL!
I have those 3 books and they were great! I plan to get "Strategery" very soon.
yum yum...er...I mean...uh huh. ;*)
And we got to hang out with these guys before they were famous.
Super Stretch bump! :)
Ok, as a newcomer, can someone fill me in, or direct me to where I can be filled in as to what this is about?
That was one of those nights I will always remember. I had no gems of wisdom to offer but watching a chapter of history unfold before my very eyes..........WoW. Thanks forever to all who did participate.
Yall been to the White House yet? Congratulations
I became a freeper that night.
Howlin, every single one of these memos to file is in a proportionally spaced font, probably Palatino or Times New Roman.
In 1972 people used typewriters for this sort of thing, and typewriters used monospaced fonts.
The use of proportionally spaced fonts did not come into common use for office memos until the introduction of laser printers, word processing software, and personal computers. They were not widespread until the mid to late 90's. Before then, you needed typesetting equipment, and that wasn't used for personal memos to file. Even the Wang systems that were dominant in the mid 80's used monospaced fonts.
I am saying these documents are forgeries, run through a copier for 15 generations to make them look old.
This should be pursued aggressively.
After this post, the only clock ticking on CBS was the one counting down the seconds left in Dan Rather and Mary Mape's careers
I'm with you. I was very new to this website and remember being absolutely glued to it for hours and hours reading the posts.
It truly was historic. Little did we know at the time how remarkable it was! History was made.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all who were involved.
