John Burkett (a retired National Guard Lieutenant colonel) admitted that he deliberately mislead the CBS news network. Burkett gave false origins of the documents to the network to protect the confidentiality he promised to the actual source.
Burkett is well known for his Bush "hating" and has been discredited in the past. The serious questions being raised now is John Burkett has senior-level contacts with the Kerry Campaign. Could this be a desperate act to salvage John Kerry's hate filled, Bush Bashing, no-plan type of campaign? Could this be their attempt to close the poll gaps? Investigations will hopefully uncover the individuals responsible for this obvious attempt to falsely damage Bush's name.
