We thought left-wing propagandist Dan Rather had hit rock bottom when he was forced to walk the plank at CBS News and washed up as a regular guest at MSNBC. But for The Dan, there is always a new low. According to Canada Free Press, now he is falsely passing himself off as having served in the Marines:
The editor-in-chief of the website www.MilitaryCorruption.com, retired U.S. Army Major Glenn MacDonald, says he stumbled across a published photo of Rather in a dress blue Marine Corps uniform in his book Rather Outspoken and decided to investigate the claim. The photo caption, “as a young Marine,” clearly indicates Rather had been a member in good standing of the Marine Corps.
But the truth, MacDonald says, is that Rather left the Marines before completing boot camp and the photo was obtained under questionable circumstances.
Evidently the photo was taken for use in a yearbook distributed to Marines who unlike Rather make it through boot camp. How Rather got his hands on the photo remains a mystery.
Ironically, Rather destroyed his career by using crudely forged documents to cast false aspersions on W’s military service in the National Guard.
