Holy Blogosphere Storm, Batman! Lots of big bloggers are in a whirlwind about the latest GWB service document release, showcased on CBS' 60 Minutes last night. Some think that a key part of it may be a forgery. (Sorry, Rusty).

Read and tell me what you think.
I still haven’t made up my mind. What I’m wondering is this: was the document in question originally hand-written? That could allow for the document having a--shall we say--recent flavor to it. (I can’t see a commander typing up his own memo.) If so, surely there’s a scan of the original document somewhere, assuming that one exists, benefit of the doubt and all.
UPDATE: One of LGF's commenters points to the date format of the document in question: 18 August 1973. That's not the standard military date format of the time. This is: 18 AUG 73. (Recently, standard military date format was changed to the following: 09092004, that is, day, month, year.)
