Bill Burkett - Nabbed By A Fax

Kevin McCullough, who was kind enough to have me on his radio show when I was in New York, hits a grand slam run within the space of one hour.

JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH ABILENE KINKOS: Bill Burkett has a standing account with the Kinkos in Abilene Texas, and while the lady who answered the phone would not be more specific she did say Burkett was in there last week....

TIME TO THINK ABILENE: According to the Washington Post for tomorrow - the documents at the center of the Rathergate appear to have faxed from a Kinkos Copy Center somewhere near Abilene, Texas.

More on Burkett this evening. You can get started on him at Ace of Spades HQ.

Burkett was a LTC too. I doubt he'd have made the from and style mistakes in the documents, he should know the terminology (OER/OETR) the correct way to abbreviate ranks, and the signature block.

But then again he seems as mad as a loon, so who knows.

Nebbermind... Burkett (according to Gehrety at Kerryspot) was an LTC in the Army National Guard...

the abbrevations (according to Knox) were more consistent to Army terms, than to ANG/Air Force.

I knew who it was as soon as I heard about this story last night on Drudge. Abilene = Burkett, who is a known loony-toon with an ax to grind against Bush, and has been putting forth this same line of attack for years. He's had a couple of nervous breakdowns and is on the wacko fringe left of the political spectrum.

Another article I read on RatherBiased.com mentioned that Burkett has a standing account at the Kinko's in Abilene and was in there as recently as last week. Burkett is almost certainly the source of the CBS memos. The question is, did he forge them himself or did someone else forge them and give them to him to send to CBS?

Kind of odd: Burkett is 55, so he should be old enough to remember what typewritten text looked like, as opposed to text typed in a word-processing program like Word, with automatic line wrap, etc. My own pet theory is that the forger was some punk kid in his 20s or early 30s who has never used a real typewriter and has used computers his whole life.

Then again, if Burkett is computer savvy enough to be able to forge the documents on Word, why didn't he just use a computer fax/modem to send the docs to CBS? Or, for that matter, why didn't he just scan them (even cheap printers these days have a built-in scanner) and send them as e-mail attachments? Going to Kinko's to fax documents suggests a certain Luddite tendency. Faxing is OLD technology. E-mailing is newer technology. So is using your own fax/modem. My guess is that Burkett may have collaborated with someone younger on the forgery, with Burkett providing the content and the younger person poking it into Word.

It should be noted that both Burkett and his lawyer, David Van Os, are Texas Democratic Party political operatives, according to an article on ChronicallyBiased.com: http://www.chronicallybiased.com/index.php?itemid=1544
