Skip to comments.CBS Guard Documents Traced to Tex. Kinko's
Posted on 09/15/2004 7:46:31 PM PDT by blogblogginaway
Documents allegedly written by a deceased officer that raised questions about President Bush's service with the Texas Air National Guard bore markings showing they had been faxed to CBS News from a Kinko's copy shop in Abilene, Tex., according to another former Guard officer who was shown the records by the network.
The markings provide one piece of evidence suggesting a source for the documents, whose authenticity has been hotly disputed since CBS aired them in a "60 Minutes" broadcast Sept. 8. The network has declined to name the person who provided them, saying the source was confidential, or to explain how the documents came to light after more than three decades.
Which president created the Federal Emergency Management Agency? William H. Taft Franklin D. Roosevelt Dwight D. Eisenhower Jimmy Carter

There is only one Kinko's in Abilene, and it is 21 miles from the Baird, Tex., home of retired Texas National Guard officer Bill Burkett, who has been named by several news outlets as a possible source for the documents.

Strong didn't comment on that by accident. It's clear Burkitt is being set up as the fall guy here.
The WP already has the story.
Mr. CBS is drowning.
Give it up Billy. You're busted.
And your lawyer...David Van Os...who is a democratic candidate for the Texas Supreme Court....well...its only a matter of time before they figure out you two coordinated with the Democratic party.
And that will down two guys running for office.
No so fast.........Ben Barnes lives REAL near Abilene.
If this is Burkitt, what are the chances this may immediately become a criminal matter?
It's either fraud or theft of government property.
Where at? I know he once had a place near Austin...and then moved to some place like Main.
In a related development, White House press secretary Scott McClellan hinted that more documents regarding Bush's National Guard service may soon be released. Asked whether officials in the White House have seen unreleased documents, McClellan called that "a very real possibility." Other officials with knowledge of the situation said more documents had indeed been uncovered and would be released in the coming days.Now THERE's a teaser final paragraph!
Baird or Brownwood.
Yes, that's a teaser alright. Hope they are supportive of the President's service.
Besides, it's a conspiracy and they're in it together.
And that includes CBS.
I mentioned this in the other thread. Burkitt was in the Texas Army National Guard. The memos were written in what Knox said sounded "army". CBS said the documents came from a "former military officer". Burkitt was an officer.
Damnit! you beat me on the post L0L
It may or may not be Barnes. But it's really clear CBS wants us to think it's Burkitt -- remember, they said it was from a retired officer in the military.
Of course they'll be supportive of GWB's service.
Goodness, you don't believe the spin do you?
He did serve and he didn't break the rules and he was honorably discharged.
burkett is sweating about now
It appears this might even implicate USA Today because they too refuse to disclose who their source was. Maybe they can get a person at the Kinkos from where this "memo" was faxed. He wouldn't be obliged to keep silent, unless, of course he was a "Fairy Kerry" supporter.
About time I beat someone to it.........LOL
