    “We are treating this as an act of domestic terrorism,” said Bill Killian, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee. U.S. Attorney William C. Killian said. However, Killian said that the investigation would bear out precisely what kind of crime this was, and he cautioned people not to get caught up in the label. (Washington Post) How ironic that it is Bill Killian – who was the most reluctant official to speak at today’s press conference. William Killian is the Department of Justice official who vowed to criminalize social postings on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Robert Redford to Play Dan Rather in 'Truth'

    07/09/2014 6:40:09 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 100 replies
    Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather's producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries. - See more at: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/robert-redford-play-dan-rather-717476#sthash.Y0QB620e.dpuf

    A U.S. attorney in Tennessee said that it's possible that some inflammatory criticism of Muslims posted on social networking sites could violate federal civil rights laws. “We need to educate people about Muslims and their civil rights, and as long as we’re here, they’re going to be protected,” U.S. attorney Bill Killian told the Tullahoma News last week. “This is also to inform the public about what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.” Killian, along with an FBI agent, are expected to attend a meeting Tuesday in Manchester, Tenn. hosted by a local Muslim group to...

    MANCHESTER, Tenn. - Hundreds gathered to rally against a forum scheduled to discuss American Muslim civil rights. The group came armed with messages and signs about First Amendment rights and free speech after hearing about the open forum through talk radio and social media. The forum was described by Bill Killian, U.S. Attorney of East Tennessee and guest speaker, as an educational effort about civil rights laws as they relate to freedom of religion, specifically the Muslim religion. The forum also informed the public of the federal laws regarding civil rights and the consequences of violating those laws. However, critics...
  • Still at it: Dan Rather insists Bush’s National Guard service in question (with Video)

    The DailyCaller.com ^ | 4-30-2012 | Jeff Poor
    It’s been nearly eight years since Dan Rather’s long career at CBS came to a close after he ran a story that could have derailed President George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection. Instead, the story about Bush’s supposedly questionable National Guard service wound up giving the media a black eye after some of the documents used to in the report turned out to be fake. Nonetheless, Rather is still at it, making the case that he was in the right and that the only reason he was forced out at CBS was because of pressure from his corporate superiors. Rather made...

    BERWICK (PA)– A lawyer for a woman who is accused of endangering her newborn girl by placing the infant outdoors in frigid temperatures said he plans to investigate her confession to police. Jennifer Lynn Killian, 23, of Berwick, was arrested Nov. 27 shortly after she allegedly admitted to investigators that she placed her newborn in a plastic bag and set the bag outside her Garfield Avenue home minutes after she gave birth on Nov. 22. Police said Killian agreed to the interview with investigators after she was read her Miranda warnings. “I’m aware of the fact that there is a...

    (NOTE TO FReaders. I would not normally alter the basic article, but it so full of delusional thoughts and outright lines that direct attribution is needed so FReader will see what is being references, much like DUmmie Funnies from PJ Comix) STORY FOLLOWS By Mary Mapes My first thought when I read the NY Post's latest Page Six item on Dan Rather was that Dan must have missed a hush money payment or something. Reading on, I realized this was actually an opening publicity volley for a new book, one that is probably guaranteed a small but ready readership. (IT...
  • Mapes Own Missing Documents

    11/21/2005 1:20:40 PM PST · by oldbill · 31 replies · 2,673+ views
    Mary Mapes website for her book Truth and Duty has a page labelled DOCUMENTS. On this page she has her famous "meshing" defense for proof that the memos were accurate. On November 16 she added 12 additional documents she got from the Texas National Guard Headquarters. Unwittingly, she posted documents that actually DISproved many of her arguments. Some of the documents were letters to the Guard Headquarters asking preferential treatment for the sons of important people, but the letters were actually refusals by the Guard commanders to these requests. They were only up for a day before someone at Mary's...

    The Washington Post ^ | 11/21/05 | Howard Kurtz
    ...Mary Mapes, the CBS producer fired over the journalistic fiasco involving President Bush's National Guard service, is the latest in a line of lonely crusaders, defending her work more than a year after it was widely discredited. Dan Rather may have apologized for the story, an independent panel may have denounced it and CBS News may have criticized her "disregard for journalistic standards," but Mapes argues in her new book that the critics are either politically motivated, cowardly or just plain wrong. In challenging those who have questioned her work -- including The Washington Post and this reporter, who is...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | January 24, 2005 | Jonathan V. Last
    LAST SEPTEMBER, CBS NEWS president Andrew Heyward promised a full accounting within "weeks, not months" of his network's attempt to pass off as genuine four fraudulent memos about President Bush's long-ago service in the Texas Air National Guard. Last Monday--nearly four months later--CBS released its report.Compiled by independent investigators Dick Thornburgh and Louis D. Boccardi, the 224-page document looked thorough enough, and its executive summary contained some bracing language. The 60 Minutes Wednesday segment shown on September 8, 2004, suffered from "considerable and fundamental deficiencies." Its producers had "failed miserably" to authenticate the purported memos from Col. Jerry Killian that...

    Duluth News-Tribune ^ | 10/6/04 | editorial staff
    A letter that appeared in Tuesday's News Tribune suggested that the Bush administration was behind an attempt to reinstate the draft. As evidence, the writer cited by number two bills in the Senate and House and urged readers to write their representatives opposing them. In fact, there are no Republican-sponsored bills concerning the draft, and the two measures requiring conscription of all young adults, rich and poor, were sponsored by Democrats in early 2003 as a tactic against the then-impending war. Specifically, co-sponsor Rep. Jim McDermott of Washington wrote: "If we need to reinstate the draft in order to make...

    FORT WORTH, Texas - (KRT) - Fifty-one members of Congress have requested an investigation into the suspected forgery of memos used by CBS to report on President Bush's service in the National Guard. Kathy Colvin, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office in Dallas, said Tuesday that federal officials were "still consulting" with the Justice Department in Washington and that no decision had been made on whether to launch an investigation. The Texas Rangers, meanwhile, have also been asked to look into the matter by U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, in a letter signed by him and other Republicans...

    Michael Moore said last night in a q&a following a speech at the University of Central Arkansas that he was given the same documents that CBS used in its original TexANG story but that he turned them down for inclusion in Farenheit 9/11 because he and his staff did not think they were authentic. We talked with four university officials who were present at the event and they all said that Moore said this. He will be speaking at the University of Florida in Gainesville tonight if someone wants to ask him if it was Bill Burkett who gave them...

    The CBS Memo Forgery Report has now covers the recent Hailey "typewriter could do it" posting and Killian's secretary interview from the Dallas Morning News. Interestingly, the reported Olympia typewriter may well have been able to do a ligature "th" according to a previously unnoted post on the net at http://www.newsroom-l.net/blog/archives/000098.html for September 11 at 1:27 A.M. However, as pointed out in the Report, the Olympia could not do proportional typing. A link to the Report's updated final draft is shown at the end of this article. Rather than take your time with all the areas covered in detail, only...
