Dan Rather on Reddit: No one proved
that Bush documents were forged

Washington Examiner [DC], by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/9/2013 5:11:37 AM

On a Reddit AMA (Ask me anything) yesterday, former CBS broadcaster Dan Rather (Now with AXS-TV) was understandably asked a question about ‘Rathergate’ – the story on George W. Bush’s service in the Air National Guard that used forged documents in the report. Rather responded brusquely: Number 1 – the facts of case are not in dispute. Number 2 – no one had ever established that the documents were forged (those who attack them argued that we didn’t do enough to demonstrate that they were not forged) The whole documents argument

Rather can´t let go of this. The way he looks at it the forged docs have no meaning because he knows Bush skipped out on NG duty.

When Kerry got back from Vietnam he was still an active duty reservist who never showed up for camp but I´m sure that doesn´t bother Rather one bit.

Bush was probably foolish when he was younger,like most people are but he put all that behind him when he quit drinking and became a practicing Christian.. Of course there´s no such thing as redemption for a conservative but there is for an animal abuser like Micheal Vick.

Baloney. Within 48 hrs. the guy at Little Green Onions produced the "Throbbing Memo", which showed that the Bush Texas Air National document purporting to be from c. 1972 was actually typed using a Microsoft Word program. The bogus document had the same letter justification, pixel for pixel. When overlayed and "throbbed" the TANG document and the newly typed Microsoft Word copy were identical.

Within hardly more than a day or two after the CBS documents were posted on the blog Little Green Footballs, responding experts, including topographers, font experts and a retired AF officer who, for almost 30 years, had been in charge of how AF documents were to be written, had decimated Rather´s "evidence." And, soon after, when CBS was forced to acknowledge from whom it had gotten these documents, it turned out to be -- surprise, surprise -- a Texan with a long history of scurrilous attacks on the Bush family. In his recent denial, Rather has once again proven the old adage: Being a lefty means never having to say you´re sorry.

Times New Roman. It is extremely unlikely that any Air National Guard office in 1972 had a typewriter with that typeface. But because he so wanted it to be true, Rather was taken in by it. Which just shows what a hateful old coot he is.

It does not matter what Bush did or did not do.
This was a case of the MSM trying to change the dynamics of the presidential election. For golly sakes, Clinton led protests against the USA, Gore was a complete phony, Kerry was a Coward that shopped around for purple hearts and only served about 11 weeks in Nam. Obama is a smoker, toker and dealer. He also hates the military and never served.
None of this mattered to the MSM.

Good article. The expert testimony is a well deserved ´Thwap´ and can´t be delivered often enough.

Especially delicious is the fact (not in the article) that the only reason the forgery was exposed was Bush´s transparency. He issued standing orders in the WH that any military docs would be immediately posted on his WH web site. When the ´TANG Docs´ were submitted to the WH, they were immediately available to all... including experts like this. Funny how well that worked.

a brief review of the "docuMENTS" that led to Rather´s firing from CBS news.

Mary Mapes (Dan Rather´s producer at CBS news) obtained these "documents" from Bill Burkett (more about him next). Ms Mapes then offered these "documents" to the John Kerry Presidential Campaign, along with writing Rather´s report on them.

Bill Burkett has admitted to lying about the origin of the memos eventually claiming that he received the Killian documents from a woman calling herself "Lucy Ramirez." Burket is a nut job with a on-line rant published about how evil Bush was.

Lucy Ramirez has never been seen or heard from (if she ever existed). Burket purported received a phone call from her (why she called him, who knows) where she offered him the Killian documents. The documents were either delivered by a unnamed middle ma, or delivered by Ramirez in a supermarket parking lot. In order to protect Ramirez from being traced as the source of the memos through DNA on the documents, Burkett then burned the original documents after making copies of them, according to Burkett.

You cannot make this stuff up...

Rather is senile. Does anyone under the age of 50 even know who he is anymore?

$100B withdrawal from US Treasury

WASHINGTON — A record $100 billion in withdrawals of Treasury bills is raising speculation that the Kremlin and Russian oligarchs are yanking their money out of the United States to avoid upcoming sanctions over Ukraine. The massive outflow over the past week came as President Obama and other top US officials repeatedly warned Russia would face a “cost” if it didn’t reverse course in Ukraine. The total amount of foreign-held US Treasury securities dropped to $2.86 trillion — lowest in more than a year. Last year, the most moved out in a week was $32 billion. Analysts said that if the switch was made

If multiple communication systems aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 were manually disabled, as investigators increasingly suspect happened, it would have required detailed knowledge of the long-range Boeing Co. 777´s inner workings. The first loss of the jet´s transponder, which communicates the jet´s position, speed and call sign to air traffic control radar, would require disabling a circuit breaker above and behind an overhead panel. Pilots rarely, if ever, need to access the circuit breakers, which are reserved for maintenance personnel.Pulling one specific circuit breaker, which is labeled, would render inoperative both of the 777´s transponders, according to documents reviewed by

Two years after his whirlwind, presidential campaign ended with a thud, Rick Perry is writing the story of his comeback. And when he strode onstage at the Conservative Political Action Conference this month, he appeared to believe in the narrative. “I am here today to say we don’t have to accept recent history,” Perry bellowed, bringing a still-groggy morning crowd to its feet. “We just have to change the presidency.” For months, Perry -- the three-term Texas governor who walked in late to the prior Republican presidential primary as an instant, if short-lived, front-runner -- has deliberately tried to position

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

John Paul Jones, the ‘Father of the American Navy,’ led Catherine the Great’s 18th-century occupiers, before a sex scandal chased him out of the empire. The first time Russia conquered the Crimean Peninsula and fought a war so that its gains would be internationally recognized, it relied, in part, on an American hero. In 1788, John Paul Jones, “the Father of the American Navy” who captained the USS Bonhomme Richard in its famous victory over the HMS Serapis at Flamborough Head, fought the Ottoman Empire on behalf of Catherine the Great—as Kontradmiral Pavel Ivanovich Jones—and helped Russia maintain its control of the

MEDFORD, Mass.— Colleges are paying students to take a year off after high school to travel, volunteer or do internships so that students of all income brackets can benefit from ‘‘gap years.’’ A new program at Tufts University and existing ones at a handful of other schools aim to remove the financial barriers that can keep cash-strapped students from exploring different communities and challenge their comfort zones before jumping right into college. The gap year program starting this fall at Tufts will pay for housing, airfare and even visa fees, which can often add up to $30,000 or more. Although gap years are

President Obama has no business ­experience. For most people, that might incline one to modesty. Not this president. To the contrary, he believes he knows how an auto company should be run, what policies health-insurance companies should offer, the wages, say, a part-time worker in a family restaurant should receive and what banks should pay in bonuses. Now the president has found a new area in which to intervene. Yesterday he directed his Labor Department to make millions of salaried managers eligible for overtime pay. Under existing rules, employers must pay overtime to salaried workers earning less than $455 a week. Though

P erhaps the worst sin of the GOP during the Obama era has been the party´s lack of interest in serious, innovative policy. Thanks to the notion that opposing the White House was enough of an agenda, and the inchoate enthusiasm of the Tea Party, the GOP, it seemed, was great at sound and fury but had no ideas. Anything the GOP did manage to propose was either an old idea from the ´80s, just plain awful, or (most often) both. If this narrative seems familiar, it´s because left-of-center pundits have been hammering these ideas for years. And they were

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west.
