Docs Redux

From the Dallas Morning News:

OK, one more snippet on the Docs. Killian's Secretary has been contacted and believes the documents to be fake, BUT she defends the content. It has always been the content that has been important to me, and once again, along with Hodges ("these are the things that Killian had expressed to me at the time,"), the content is corroborated:
Marian Carr Knox, who worked from 1956 to 1979 at Ellington Air Force Base in Houston, said she prided herself on meticulous typing, and the memos first disclosed by CBS News last week were not her work.

"These are not real," she told The Dallas Morning News after examining copies of the disputed memos for the first time. "They're not what I typed, and I would have typed them for him."
This just might be enough for this objective sole to now admit the docs are less likely to have come from the Killian Files directly. But what of those files, this mystery file drawer that his family said he wouldn't have kept:
Mrs. Knox said she did all of Lt. Col. Killian's typing, including memos for a personal "cover his back" file he kept in a locked drawer of his desk.

She said she did not recall typing the memos reported by CBS News, though she said they accurately reflect the viewpoints of Lt. Col. Killian and documents that would have been in the personal file. Also, she could not say whether the CBS documents corresponded memo for memo with that file.

"The information in here was correct, but it was picked up from the real ones" she said.
Unfortunately, this story is tarnished so bad that the Right wins again, the truth will be buried on page 6A with a couple column inches and we all move on to the next flying piece of shit mud.
