  •  They couldn't really comment from the White House, (20+ / 0-)

    because actual documents saying the same thing once existed, whether the documents in question were legit or not.

    So, if the White House commented, they would have run afoul of either having the old ones destroyed (very likely according to many accounts while Bush was Governor of Texas) or of claiming the Rather documents were false when they were accurate but not original, etc, etc, etc.

    The White House had no way to say anything, so they kept their mouth shut.

    In my opinion, Rather's story was accurate, but the documents remain of questionable origin. Since the secretary essentially confirmed the contents of the documents, then it shouldn't matter.  So the contents show the story was accurate.

    Bush was and is a draft dodging coward, end of story.
