I just read this article which is claiming the CBS documents about George Bush are fake.
Power Line: The sixty-first minute
What in the world is going on here? If it is proven that CBS has promoted the controversial Air National Guard documents as "fact" when in fact they are forgeries, then that's it - I'm packing up my bags and moving to Canada. I can't take this divisiveness in this country any more nor journalism that will taint the news to suit their agenda. Where has the brotherly love in the country gone? What happened to journalistic integrity?
It's as if supporters of either the Republican or the Democratic parties will do anything to win this contested election - lie, cheat, steal, or in this case, even create forged documents about Bush's military record.
The Swift Boat Veterans is another example of just how divisive and nasty this election has come. At least with the Swift Boat veterans there are "faces" and names to back up their claims and to take some heat from anyone disputing their claims, but the CBS document is signed by a deceased veteran!
If this is indeed a forgery and they have used a deceased, honorable veteran's name to disparage a sitting commander-in-chief, then I hope they catch the guy/woman and
then I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them -- Samuel Jackson, Pulp Fiction, or Ezekiel 25:17.
In all seriousness, I'm almost hoping these are not forgeries. I'd rather think Bush pulled out his "blue blood card" and pulled some strings to get out of the National Guard. The alternative - that an American citizen would forge a document, sign a dead man's name, and ruin the reputation of two veterans is just unthinkable.
The regularly scheduled program of VoIP news/reviews will continue tomorrow...
p.s. In the meantime, to cheer myself up after all this divisiveness, i think I'll go play the "This Land" video parody of Bush and Kerry. Gives me a laugh everytime!
