Whitewash part II

Jonathan Last is hammering the Thornburgh/Boccardi report. Today he says that the failure to conclusively state the documents underlying the false CBS news segment on Pres. Bush's National Guard story were forged is belied by the facts that the report lays out.

Why? Here is Last's summary of what the Thornburgh panel's typsetting expert, Peter Tytell, found:
Now, after careful examination, Tytell has come to three conclusions:

(1) The previously-released Texas Air National Guard documents had been created on an "Olympia manual typewriter."

(2) The four disputed Killian memos "were not produced on an Olympia manual typewriter."

(3) "The Killian documents were produced on a computer in Times New Roman typestyle."
