Still emotionally raw, Dan Rather called his National Guard story “accurate” during a media forum aired on C-SPAN last night. He said that “nobody” has proven the obviously doctored Killian letter to be a forgery. Asked if CBS showed courage, his favoriteÂ trait, during the debacle, he grew silent. He relied on theÂ Dick Thornburgh white-wash CBS commissioned toÂ dispute charges of bias. That report, by the way, blamed “haste” for the botched story. Haste?Â Over a year later, RatherÂ still regards theÂ story as true and would do it again if he could get away with it.Â
