Some Perspective on Forgeries

So it looks like CBS is going to admit that the Killian documents are forgeries. But let's put this in some perspective.

First, the content of the memos is accurate. Bush used family connections to get into the Guard, failed to meet his obligations and used family connections to get an honorable discharge that he didn't deserve. Lots of other documents prove this. The Killian memos are not necessary to back up that truth.

Second, it was a prominent Republican activist who posted the first questions about the memos -- the same guy who helped in the campaign for Clinton to be disbarred in Arkansas.

Third, what about the forged Niger-uranium-Saddam documents? Nearly everyone, including Colin Powell (suspending belief here for a moment) believed those forgeries. Not to mention the Saddam-9/11 lies.

Fourth, what about all those fake stories the media ate up throughout the Clinton years? Has anyone in the media every apologized for falling for the dirty tricks of Whitewater, Vince Foster, etc etc etc.

The whole thing stinks of dirty tricks designed to distract the media and the public from the fact that Bush is a spoiled rich kid who is completely and totally wrong for America.
