Here we go again:

The Alger Hiss case - 1948:
The defense did not mount a challenge to the prosecution’s contention that the Baltimore documents had been typed on the machine that had been owned by the Hiss family...

...experts testified that the homely machine brought into court as a defense exhibit had produced both the Hiss specimens and the Baltimore documents.

... the defense argued that a different typist must have done the typing ...
And on and on it goes.


The argument begins over whether or not the newly released Bush National Guard records are fogeries. The assumption is that if they are forgeries, they were forged to make Bush look bad. I think people should consider the possibility that they were forged by Bush administration henchmen for one of at least two possible reasons: to discredit the whole story, or to hide something else more incriminating.

The absence of these documents was starting to look bad & I think the ones just released are probably the most favorable documents that they could get away with cooking up without looking obviously phony.

Funny thing about the Football analysis--

When I went back to the actual documents, they didn't line up all that well:

The red layer is the original, the blue is the Word screenshot. Note how the letters in File are shifted left of the original, while the word period is shifted right.

I couldn't sit this one out... I'm sick of this wingnut bullshit about the so-called "forged documents."

So, I have created an animated graphic explaining the differences between the CBS Memo and the Times New Roman sample that the so called "experts" in the wingnut site used as "proof" of tampering.

The example they used just doesn't stand on its own. Close attention actually shows evidence the CBS documents seems to come from a typewriter, not from a modern word processor.

CLICK HERE to view the animation and the article explaining the differencesThe whole animation lasts about 1 minute, then loops ad-infinitum.
