Apparently the memos about Bush were likely forged, but reflect true information.
The secretary for the squadron commander purported to be the author of now-disputed memos questioning President Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard said Tuesday that she never typed the documents and believed they were fakes.
But she also said they accurately reflected the thoughts of the commander, Lt. Col. Jerry Killian, and other memorandums she typed for him about Bush. "The information in them is correct," the woman, Marian Carr Knox, 86, said in an interview at her home in Texas.
After hearing about this himself, Hesiod asks the pertinent questions:
In essence, then, someone with access to Bush's TANG file copied the memos at some point, and used a modern word processor to put them into a more readable format.
The big question then is what happened to the originals? And why weren't they produced by the White House or the Bush campaign? And if they no longer exist, why not? Who got rid of them?
Of course, no one in the media proper will ask these questions, but they still stand.
