It is an old intelligence game--"the poison pill"--that works the
reverse of the old "salting the mine" (planting a bit of gold to make a
baren mine look potentially fertile). When a story is getting out of
hand and causing a threat to elements of one's own base (e.g. National
Guard and Reserve Troops possibly getting turned off with the preppy
moron's favored treatment when he was sort of in the Texas Guard), you
plant some documents that appear authentic and are potentially quite
damaging to your own cause, let the scoop-obsessed media run with it for
awhile, then pull the plug at a propitious moment showing that the
planted documents are forgeries thus "poisoning" not only the documents
but the whole story as well. The whores (with all due respect to "sex
workers") in the media, whose own spiral of SUCKcess in media requires
access to get the next scoop in order to get more exposure, in order to
become a bigger name, in order to get even more expanded access... will
apologize all over the place for having ben sucked in with forged
documents and teh story then shift to the forged documents not what the
documents were about and whether or not the CONTENT of those documents
was correct or who indeed passed those documents in the first place.
During the 1980 election the same thing was done with the October
Surprise story. When the evidence mounted that REagan-Bush had cut a
deal with elments in Iran to keep  American hostages until after the
election to deny Carter an electoral victory, and when "respected"
analysts like Gary Sick were joining in so that it became more than just
another "conspiracy theory" up stepped Richard Brenneke (who had real
bona fides has a former CIA Contract pilot and indeed a pilot for Poppy
Bush) to say that he had flown Bush 41 to a secret meeting in Paris that
Bush claimed he never attended. It all looked very lethal and damaging
for Bush 41 until, supposedly to reasearch the story, a novice reporter
was given access to Brenneke's personal papers, including gas receipts,
and voila, this nocive reporter, "discovers" a gas receipt showing
Brenneke in Orergon on the day he claimed to have flown Poppy Bush to
Paris. The story explodes, Brenneke is thoroughly discredited, and all
of a sudden the WHOLE story, irrefutable facts and all, is discredited
and consigned to the realm of nut case "conspiracy theory."
The CBS story about Bush's illustrious Guard "service" is nothing more
than but a replay of this previous "poison pill" scenario with a
compliant mainstream press and a lot of really dumb people falling into
line and taking their eyes of the irrefuatable facts and their real
