  • Bush memos not faked?

    09/29/2004 2:03:14 PM PDT · by ArcLight · 164 replies · 6,282+ views
    ABSTRACT The following evidence from a forensic examination of the Bush memos indicates that they were typed on a typewriter: 1. The specific font used is from a typewriter family in common use since 1905 and a typewriter capable of producing the spacing has been available since 1944. 2. The characters “e,” “t,” “s,” and “a” show indications of physical damage and/or wear consistent with a well used typewriter. 3. The characters that are seldom used show no signs of damage or wear. 4. The quality of individual characters is inconsistent throughout the memos beyond expectations from photocopying and/or digitizing...

    POLITICS: Staff shake-ups. Debate one-liners. Unsubstantiated rumors. Dirty tricks. Terrorism. It must be October, and this must be an ­election year. "I called the guy,"(Burkett) Mr. Lockhart admitted to The Wall Street Journal. "We talked for three or four minutes about the swift-boat controversy. He believed our response was inadequate, that Kerry should push back about the Vietnam experience. I thanked him for his advice. End of the story." But it wasn't quite the end. Mike McCurry, another Kerry adviser, later said Mr. Lockhart told campaign manager Mary Beth Cahill about the conversation, and she, in turn, relayed it to...

    As he described it, Bill Burkett was sick of the Kerry campaign's sheer ineptitude. A member of the Progressive Populist Caucus of the Texas Democratic Party and a retired Army National Guardsman, he became incensed as he watched his candidate's credibility suffer from TV ads sponsored by Swift Boat veterans, while Kerry and his staff bungled their responses. Burkett wanted to do something about it, and believed he had the means to do it. But Kerry's people weren't listening. In an Internet posting, he candidly wrote that he waded through "seven layers of bureaucratic kids trying to get a job...
  • Frrepers: Who typed the memos?

    09/24/2004 11:22:37 AM PDT · by Evilscott · 31 replies · 463+ views
    We need to put some collective brainpower together! Who typed up the fake Killian memos? I don't think it was Burkett, here's why: 1) He would have done it years ago, and 2) The memo format was incorrect. Since he has been liveing and breathing this paperwork for years, he would not have created new ones with the incorrect format. I think the Kery camp/DNC kids typed them and laundered them to Burkett knowing Mapes was circling overhead. What do you think?

    WASHINGTON – Bill Burkett of Baird, Texas, will have a prominent place in the annals of political trickery. He'll be remembered as the one who aimed at President Bush and felled the mighty Dan Rather and "60 Minutes." Who could've contrived this hoax? Suspicions settled on Mr. Burkett, himself a former Guard officer with a lively hatred of President Bush. With a sinking feeling, Rather and staff, who'd worked long and hard at developing the "scoop," realized they'd been had. Rather flew to Texas and strong-armed Burkett into an interview confessing all - almost all. He said he'd worked in...

    The son of the late Lt. Col. Jerry Killian, who was President Bush's commander in the National Guard, is demanding that Dan Rather and CBS News make a public apology to his family for airing forged documents bearing his father's name after he tried to wave them off the story.

"All Dan Rather has done is apologize to his viewers," he told Sean Hannity. "He hasn't apologized for trashing the reputation of my...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - CBS News faced new charges of journalistic impropriety on Tuesday, a day after the network said it regretted using questionable documents in a report challenging President Bush (news - web sites)'s military service. At issue was a report in USA Today that the source of the documents gave them to CBS only after the network agreed to arrange a conversation between the source and the presidential campaign of Bush's opponent, Democratic Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites). Experts in media ethics said if the report were true, CBS may have overstepped the boundary between journalism...

    The hot rumor in New York political circles has Roger Stone, the longtime GOP activist, as the source for Dan Rather's dubious Texas Air National Guard "memos." The irony would be delicious, since Rather became famous confronting President Nixon, in whose service a very young Stone became associated with political "dirty tricks." Reached at his Florida home, Stone had no comment.

    Bush campaign spokesman Steve Schmidt is circulating a list of quotes from the Kerry campaign denying any involvement with the memos, and a quote from Joe Lockhart telling George Stephanopoulos that he had nothing to do with them. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos reported that Lockhart denied having “Anything to do with these documents.” STEPHANOPOULOS: “I should say, just before we got on the air, Joe Lockhart of the Kerry campaign denies that the Kerry campaign had anything to do with these documents. Another Kerry researcher says they learned about them on television.” (ABC’s “Good Morning America,” 9/10/04) Lockhart Said He Spoke...

    Gary Killian of Houston, son of the late Lt. Col. Jerry Killian, a Texas Air National Guard commander over Bush in the early 1970s says CBS owes his family an apology for airing false documents attributed to his father, according to a report in the Kansas City Star. Gary Killian, who once served in the Guard with his father, said he first questioned the validity of parts of the memos -- then later became convinced they were all fakes. Killian admits he is angry with CBS: "Do I take it personally? Yes. I think, first of all, CBS and Dan...

    Update at the bottom: On September 15th, CBS News issued a three-page news release. CBS was still standing by its National Guard story in the wake of an article by ABC News about previously unknown document examiners hired by CBS, having doubts about the Killian documents they had been hired to review. I wrote an article in follow-up to that ABC News story exposing CBS for deliberately withholding the fact that they had more than four documents. It was entitled “Evidence that CBS News 60 Minutes II is guilty of malice and intent to defraud” and posted it here the...

    A spit-take scoop from USA Today: CBS arranged for a confidential source to talk with Joe Lockhart, a top aide to Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, after the source provided the network with the now-disputed documents about President Bush's service in the Texas National Guard. Lockhart, the former press secretary to President Clinton, said a female producer talked to him about the 60 Minutes program a few days before it aired on Sept. 8. She gave Lockhart a telephone number and asked him to call Bill Burkett, a former Texas National Guard officer who gave CBS the documents. Lockhart couldn't...

    CBS/AP) CBS News said Monday it cannot prove the authenticity of documents used in a 60 Minutes story about President Bush's National Guard service and that airing the story was a "mistake" that CBS regretted. CBS News Anchor Dan Rather, the reporter of the original story, apologized. CBS News claimed a source had misled the network on the documents' origins. The network pledged "an independent review of the process by which the report was prepared and broadcast to help determine what actions need to be taken." In a statement, CBS said former Texas Guard official Bill Burkett "has acknowledged that...
