Daily Trek 091104

A Moment of Silence as today is Patriots Day in honor of those lost in The War on Terrorism started by the radical islamists who attacked this great country of ours!

Had this from Cox and Forkum, but it messes up the whole blog it's a tribute to 9/11, go check it out.

Someone is going to be pissed - If the reports that the infamous Rathergate memos are from the Kerry Camp then Tom Harkin was left hanging in the wind. But he refuses to apologize for his blather! (I know I would be f.....ing livid!) See The American Spectator Washington Prowler.

Ivan the Terrible is still barreling down on Cuba and Florida - 39 dead in Jamaca and it looks like it is on track to hit the what is left of Florida.

Mark Steyn of the Chicago Sun Times rips into CBS and the MSM for the Rathergate memo flap:
Are Dan Rather and ''60 Minutes'' a bunch of patsies suckered by the Kerry campaign? Not exactly. According to the American Spectator, ''The CBS producer said that some alarm bells went off last week when the signatures and initials of Killian on the documents in hand did not match up with other documents available on the public record, but producers chose to move ahead with the story."

WND - Bin Laden close to capture and Bin Laden issues orders for new attacks of Afghan insurgents.

Rathergate Memo Flap has legs - witnesses caving on the entire story not just the memo part - coverage is excellent at Powerline
Seems everymedia outlet that has been hitting the original guard story has been Rather biased to say the least in their Lie-N-Hype type of editing and interviewing, ie misleading experts and misquoting them.

UPDATE: From NRO's Kerry Spot which has great coverage of how the media is trying to spin out of this. And includes the Wizbang quote I reported on here - 34567 All Good forgers....

Attempting to authenticate a signature from a photocopy is exactly what Matley did for CBS.

Game over.

UPDATE: A couple of readers question whether this really is "game over" - whether CBS can hunker down and wait for the storm to blow over.

Actually, it appears CBS no longer has any witnesses backing up its case.
