The word is out and about now that the CBS Bush National Guard memos are not forgeries but rather recreations of actual documents authored by Lt. Col. Killian.
That theory gains credence from the fact that Killian's secretary has now said
that though she believes these memos are not real that their contents reflect real documents that once existed in Killian's personal file -- ones she herself typed.
There's a word, though, for these sorts of recreations, if that's what they are: forgeries
There's no sense or possibility of getting around that.
The late news
that two of CBS's own experts had questions about the authenticity of these documents is really all you need to know to see that this piece never should have run as it did. At a minimum, when the original story ran, CBS should have shared with viewers the questions their own experts were apparently raising about the documents' authenticity.
