    James Pierce, the latest document expert revealed by Dan Rather Biased on Wednesday, spoke to Garry Moon of The Athens (Georgia) Banner-Herald.
    Pierce is furious with CBS News. He also revealed that he was shown "lots more documents."
    This story is getting more weird hour by hour.
    Moon's article hasn't been published yet, but he exchanged emails with NRO's Jim Geraghty.
    {btw I suggest you all bookmark Geraghty's page. He has a reliable source inside CBS News}

    I did hear something about this guy Pierce............Seems everyone associated with this story in any way is now coming out swinging and covering their patutees...........Soon the only one Rather will have to speak with on this other than the 86 year old sec, will be the guy that owns the Kinkos where the documents were sent from....

    Alleged CBS Source May Carry Old Grudge Against Bush
    By Robert B. Bluey

    (CNSNews.com) - The suspected source behind the CBS News "60 Minutes II" segment on President Bush's National Guard service has spent the past six years lobbing accusations at Bush and his aides for allegedly tampering with military records.

    Retired Texas National Guard Lt. Col. Bill Burkett has been identified by Newsweek magazine as a "principle source" for the Sept. 8 segment that showed purported National Guard records casting a negative light on Bush's performance with the Guard in the early 1970s.

    Since the CBS report anchored by Dan Rather aired, many typographical experts have pointed to problems with the documents and the network itself has come under attack for possibly using forgeries as the foundation of its report.

    Burkett has a long history with Bush, dating back to Bush's 1998 gubernatorial re-election campaign in Texas. After retiring from the Guard in January 1998 for medical reasons, Burkett accused the governor's aides of improperly inspecting Bush's records for anything embarrassing.

    These people sure don't cover their tracks very well, I can't imagine any rational person at CBS saying yeah lets team up with this crew! This idiot Burkett types the docs out on his word application, then runs over to Kinkos and sends them over to CBS corporate....... it's laughable.
