Bush Guard Documents = Forgery?
The blogosphere is abuzz with the prospect that 60 Minutes and CBS may have been dealing with forged documents. The boys at Powerline appear to have started it all and have the best coverage, stem to stern. (I'd advise reading the whole thing, including updates before embarking on sidetrips). If you're not that patient, someone here agreed with the theory and did some experimenting. So did the folks at Little Green Footballs, who copied the docs using MS Word using standard Times New Roman font, etc. The result? A near perfect match, including word spacing and type. Did the Air National Guard have MS Word in the early '70's? Hm. We shall see.
