George W. Bush — Draft Dodger

Did President George W. Bush dodge the draft during the Vietnam War, as Dan Rather’s report asserted just before the 2004 election—the report that got Dan Rather fired?

Well, the BBC reporter Greg Palast did the same story a year before. Palast and the BBC stand by their story, part of which is in this video.

But Palast is not at all sympathetic with Dan Rather, who he says “cut a back-room deal to shut his mouth, grab his ankles, and let his network retract a story he knew to be absolutely true.” For Palast’s full unflattering take on Dan Rather’s suit, click here.

  1. Been reading your blog now for quite some time and really love it. I don’t know if it’s your style or not , but do you think you could perhaps do a post on the oil spill in the gulf?

    I love your thoughts and opinions, and would love to see your comments on this sad tragedy.

  2. Can I simply just say what a comfort to find somebody
    that truly understands what they are talking about over the internet.
    You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More and more people must look at this and understand this side
    of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular since you surely possess the
    gift.
