"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse." --John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873)

The Master Forger

From the Washington Post:

"The CBS documents [purporting to show preferential treatment given to Bush] include several phrases that crop up in Web logs signed by Burkett, including 'run interference,' and references to a pilot's 'billet.' Former Air National Guard officers have pointed out that 'billet' is an Army expression, not an Air Force one."

Burkett was in the Army National Guard.

Will CBS identify him as the source? Will he be prosecuted? Will a definitive connection between Burkett and the Kerry campaign be revealed? Will heads roll at CBS?

Stay tuned.
