Took a PDF of Kerry's Bronze start citation off his website.

Typed up a copy in Word (courier medium).

Exactly the same. Same line breaks, letters line up the same, everything.

So either Kerry's naval record has also been forged, or retyping a document in the same font makes it come out the same.

You guys are such tools.

Oh, also the same line spacing. Exactly. All this in Word defaults.

No, that is not the point. It is what they are not doing that is the news maker here.

I saw an interview today where a higher up was asked what happens when facts are called into question. He said that is is totally in the interest of the news provider to investigate further and provide rock solid proof. And that is pretty much SOP for news agencies when these things happen.

They can stick to their story while digging deeper, can't they?

No, they can stick to their stories when they believe in them. They've given enough proof--the pdfs of the memos. These memo's where not made using word.

You are seriously missing all the other reasons that these documents are in question. The kerning and superscript issues are two among half a dozen or more issues with these so-called revelations.

Have you avoided reading anything presented in this thread? What would you say If I told you I could produce a piece of Bush's record from 1968 that contains a superscript 'th'? What would you say if I told you I could produce a piece of Bush's record which has proportional font?

You are missing the point Mr. Blinded by the right. Giant and I have included GIF's that show the memos are not word docs. Giant and I have provided links to show LGF's did not simple make a word doc and superimpose it. Theses alligations are lies to discredite the ugly thrue carried by the messenger--oh and the messenger while they are at it.

Think!

Little questions...

Why do you care wether these documents are fakes or not?

Why wouldn't you want the whole truth be shed some light?

Why wouldn't you want the source of this material to be vetted?

I'm sorry, but this is a stupid dodge of a response.

Don't YOU want the truth?

Don't YOU want to know how Bush lied about his past service?

Don't you THINK this was vetted prior to presentation?

Why are YOU afraid of these documents.

Why are YOU sure-fire damn the torpedos sure these are forgeries?

Why are YOU afraid to question Bush?

Why are YOU afraid to accept that these might be real?

Why where YOU so eger to believe the SBL4B while so AFRAID of these memos?

Naples I can go on all night showing what an unbelievable hypocrit you are--what a partisan hack you are but I have work to do. I've shown your arguments are wrong. The technology existed and was in use back then. Bush's records contain other instances of the "controversial" characters...

Whay are YOU so afraid of the truth?

His wife apparently thinks her husband couldn't and didn't type.

His son seems to think that he was not in the habit of making memos to himself.

His son seems to think his father thought very highly of GWB.

Walter B. Staudt, former commander of the Texas Guard, retired on March 1, 1972. Oops.

The signatures are very questionable.

Back to the technicals. "William Flynn, a forensic document specialist with 35 years of experience in police crime labs and private practice, said the CBS documents raise suspicions because of their use of proportional spacing techniques. Documents generated by the kind of typewriters that were widely used in 1972 space letters evenly across the page, so that an "i" uses as much space as an "m." In the CBS documents, by contrast, each letter uses a different amount of space.

While IBM had introduced an electric typewriter that used proportional spacing by the early 1970s, it was not widely used in government. In addition, Flynn said, the CBS documents appear to use proportional spacing both across and down the page, a relatively recent innovation. Other anomalies in the documents include the use of the superscripted letters "th" in phrases such as "111th Fighter Interceptor Squadron," Bush's unit.

"It would be nearly impossible for all this technology to have existed at that time," said Flynn, who runs a document authentication company in Phoenix." as reported by MSNBC.

Yesterday, another retired Air National Guard officer came forward to attack the network's credibility. Retired Maj. Gen. Bobby W. Hodges, who was cited by a senior CBS official on Thursday as the network's "trump card" in verifying the documents, said in an interview that he was "misled" by CBS and believes the documents to be forgeries. - Washington Post

Again Gunga Din, what would you say if I could produce a 1968 document from Bush's record with a superscript 'th'? Also, the rest of your rant is wrong and has been proven wrong in this thread IF you had taken the time to read the post instead of jumping in mid stream...

From the WaPo: "At the time, Walter B. Staudt was commander of the Texas National Guard; Lt. Col. Bobby Hodges was one of Bush's superiors in Texas who two years earlier had rated Bush an outstanding young pilot; and Lt. Col. William D. Harris Jr. was another superior of Bush's."

Yeah, for the love of god, Gunga, read the thread. It's all here. It's pretty unassailable evidence.

Shit, if I can type up an exact duplicate of Kerry's Bronze star citation in Word with default settings, it would seem all the "kearning" and "proportional type"
is just crap.

Hell, do it yourself, if you don't believe it. Courier 13pt medium.

Exactly. The fuck. The same. Now where did the Navy get that magic typewriter, I wonder?

I am saying there are problems with the documents, not that are definitely forgeries.

In the end who cares except those who want to have some political gotcha, what is really new here?

Many of the people fighting so hard for these memos to be true would do anything they could to get out of a draft for the current war, based on the fact that they don't believe in it, and feel justified for doing just that. Wasn't there a thread about that a while back? How do I search for that?

What you say here is "give it time" but if this were Kerry related, you'd have a thread going already. Proofs in the pudd'n there killer. The SBL4B thread showed your true colors. Lie about Kerry--start a thread. Tell the truth about a pampered liar--wait a few days. Right.

Selectric I - In 1961 IBM introduced a revolutionary electric typewriter, the Selectric I, which replaced the standard typebars with a moving interchangeable spherical single printing element, while the carriage remained fixed. The single element, best known as the "golf ball" which holds the embossed characters for printing, is about the size and the embossing reminiscent of the dimples of a golf ball.

The Selectric I was available in standard and wide-carriage sizes and in various colors, including red and blue as well as traditional neutral colors. The single elements were available in many fonts, including symbols for science and mathematics, script, Old English, and more than a dozen ordinary alphabets. Over the years, there were several different cartridge styles for the ribbons, even in the same model Selectric, and they were not interchangeable.

Selectric II - The Selectric II was introduced in the late 1970s featuring self correcting, dual pitch (either 10 or 12 spaces per inch) and line-and-a-half vertical spacing.

Like its predecessor, the Selectric II was available in standard and wide-carriage sizes and in various colors, including red and blue as well as traditional neutral colors. The Selectric II used the same typeballs, which were available in many fonts, including symbols for science and mathematics, script, Old English, and more than a dozen ordinary alphabets. The typeballs came in two styles: One had a flip-up black plastic lever that could break off, and the other had a metal spring clip with two wire wings that squeezed together and did not break. Over the years, there were several different cartridge styles for the ribbons, even in the same model Selectric, and they were not interchangeable.

The Correcting Selectric II differed from the Selectric I in many respects:
The Selectric II was squarer at the corners, whereas the Selectric I was rounder.

The Selectric II could be switched (with a lever at the top left of the "carriage") between 10 and 12 characters per inch, whereas the Selectric I had one fixed "pitch".

The Selectric II had a lever (at the top left of the "carriage") that allowed characters to be shifted up to a half space to the left (for inserting a word one character longer or shorter in place of a deleted mistake), whereas the Selectric I did not.

The Selectric II had auto-correction (with the extra key at the bottom right of the keyboard), whereas the Selectric I did not. (The white correction tape was at the left of the typeball and its orange take-up spool at the right of the typeball.)

The Selectric II had a lever (above the right platen knob) that would allow the platen to be turned freely but return to the same vertical line (for inserting such symbols as subscripts and superscripts), whereas the Selectric I did not.

So much knee jerking going on.

Not to mention deafened by rage and deaf ideological grace.

Or maybe stunted by churlishness and fetching stunt doubles.

Or laid low by low life brick layers, lol.

Man, don't misspell anything around here...

Seriously funny comeback. I can't help but laugh at that.

Note that in 69 the Airforce owned a Selectric Composer!!!

Whoops!!! One of the guys harolded as the savior of Bush's past has reevaluated his position

Quote:
Philip Bouffard, a forensic document examiner in Ohio who has analyzed typewritten samples for 30 years, had expressed suspicions about the documents in an interview with the New York Times, one in a wave of similar media reports. But Bouffard told the Globe Friday that after further study, he now believed the documents could have been prepared on an IBM Selectric Composer typewriter available at the time.

Quote:
Bouffard, the Ohio document specialist, said that he had first dismissed the Bush documents because the letters and formatting of the memos did not match any of the 4,000 samples in his database. But Friday, Bouffard said that he had not considered the IBM Selectric Composer. Once he compared the memos to Selectric Composer samples, Bouffard said, his view shifted.

Damn!!! There's more

Quote:
In the Times interview, Bouffard had also questioned whether the military would have used the Composer, a large machine. But Friday he provided a document indicating that as early as April 1969 the Air Force had completed service testing for the Composer, possibly in preparation for purchasing the typewriters.

As for the raised "th" that appears in the Bush memos, Bouffard said that custom characters on the Composer's metal typehead ball were available in the 1970s.

Georg Bush himself used a proportional font typewriter in 1973



And finally--as promised though this has been presented already--The document from 4 september 1968 with a superscript 'th'



The docs are real Naples/Trumpt/SDW/Common man and whoever else threw their beans into the republican cooking pot.
