Memos on Bush Are Fake but Accurate, Typist Says

is a very clear headline to a very good article. CBS and Bush are both Totally irresponsible. I'd vote against Dan Rather if I could. Killian's secretary Marian Carr Knox says she never typed the documents. Amazingly, she also claims that Killian had secret personal files "she recalled Mr. Bush's case and the criticism of him because his record was so unusual. Mr. Killian had her type memorandums recording the problems [with Bush], she said, and he kept them in a private file under lock and key." She has a crazy nutso hypothesis which has the only virtue of being the only hypothesis that fits the facts "It looks like someone may have read the originals and put that together."

So that means there is a totally insane person out there. The Times also knows who he is

"one person at CBS, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed a report in Newsweek that Bill Burkett, a retired National Guard officer who has charged that senior aides to then-Gov. Bush had ordered Guard officials to remove damaging information from Mr. Bush's military personnel files, had been a source of the report."

This makes CBS look worse (if possible). Burkett's accusations of destruction of records may be true, but they are contradicted by the people Burkett cited as fellow witnesses. Dubious documents from him are doubly dubious duh.

Fire Dan Rather fire George Bush.
