A Dozen Questions For Dan Rather

A Dozen Unanswered Questions For Dan Rather:

1. Have your investigations discovered any other documents that resemble those in question and feature the proportional spacing, centering, kerning, and superscript found in the documents in question?

2. Have you found a typewriter of the type and model used by the National Guard in the early 70s that used the Times New Roman font and featured proportional spacing, centering and kerning?

3. Have you found an expert that can explain why the Times New Roman font used in the documents is an exact match for the Times New Roman font used by Microsoft Word (which, itself, is slightly different from the Times New Roman font used by Mac computers)?

4. Can you explain why Killian would retain copies of copies of copies instead of the originals in his own files?

5. Can you produce the names of the experts who inspected the documents before your story aired to determine whether the typefaces were possible in the early 70s by the typewriters in use by the National Guard at the time?

6. Can you explain why the person who wrote the letter decided to hit the RETURN button at the exact same spots that Microsoft Word automatically wraps the text?

7. Can you explain why the documents appear formatted to the Microsoft Word default settings for paper sized 8.5" x 11" instead of the standard size of 8" x 10.5" that was commonly used by the National Guard at the time?

8. Can you explain why the documents in question ignore the protocol that was used in creating National Guard memos of the time or why certain abbreviations are different from those used in other contemporaneous National Guard memos written by Killian?

9. Can you explain why General Staudt would be applying pressure when he retired from the National Guard the year before?

10. Why did your producer say that the documents were in Killian's handwriting when they talked to General Hodges and/or otherwise leave him with the impression that he had been misled?

11. Why do you think General Hodges, whom you claimed said that Killian supported the contents of the memos, now thinks the documents are a "fraud"?

12. Why didn't your report mention that your producer had contacted Killian's wife and son who both said he didn't have any secret files and that neither believed the documents were accurate reflections of what Killian believed?

the allegations are not credible, the paper was a forgery, he has no need to deny or comment on the allegations.

I think he has denied these allegations a few hundred times already. The only thing new that CBS brought to the table appears to be forged and the comments they used to support the forged documents came from people who are now saying CBS lied to them.

But keep digging...I'm sure this is a winner...

Look man- I already said that this freaking thing means nothing to me. It's as important as when Kerry was in Cambodia or nicking a quick blow job. But lets at least admit some of the hypocracy that runs rampent on the board, okay?

Apparently that rule only works when a conservative candidate is being attacked.

To you, NOTHING can disprove it. EVER. We know that.

But to anyone who can look at the friggin thing objectively, who isn't so wrapped up in partisan hatred that they can't see the obvious truth of it, it's clearly a fake.
