Are the inmates running the asylum?

Apparently Mary Mapes is still working on this story!!! Conflict of interest anyone? The arrogance of CBS is astounding. The only way she should still be working on this was if the original story was still in tact. CBS needs to read the writing on the wall very quickly: this story ceased to be about the Presidents Guard service about two weeks ago. The story now is how deep the conspiracy to smear the president with fake memos went. And how much collusion there was between CBS and the DNC.

Some people at CBS get it and are trying to distance themselves from the whole thing.

Here's the juice on the independent panel that CBS put together to investigate the whole thing. The only problem I have with this is that they are appointed by CBS. Can they be truly independent if they are appointed and probably paid by the very organization that tried to deceive the public with forgeries. Call my cynical but this sounds an awful lot like CBS reaching for something that they can point and say "see we were fooled too, we're innocent" or "it was all that awful Mapes person". I could be wrong, I hope I'm wrong, but we'll see.

George H.W.Bush has chimed in on this whole mess calling it "insidious". If you stop to think about it the things that Dubya has had to go through would be awfully hard for a parent to sit back and watch. I mean think about it. If your own son or daughter was accused of half the ridiculous things that our President has been accused of how would you feel. Lets see there's the 'Bush is Hitler', 'Bush planned 9/11 so he could go to war', 'Bush eats small children for lunch' etc.

Also Col. Staudt was interviewed today. He doesn't really have anything new to say, he's been saying the same thing for years. Unlike Ben Barnes who has changed his story do suit his political party.
