Texas Guard Director: '60 Minutes' Doc 'Forged as Hell'

The director of the Texas Air National Guard at the time President Bush served there said Sunday that Guard documents obtained by "60 Minutes" purporting to show dissatisfaction over his performance are "forged as hell."

"They're forged as hell," former Guard director Earl W. Lively told the Washington Times. "There's no way that [bush's commanding officer] Jerry Killian would have written what they've come up with."

Lively was referring to documents aired by CBS news star Dan Rather on Wednesday purporting to show that Bush's commander, Lt. Col. Killian, felt pressure from his own superior officer, Col. Walter "Buck" Staudt, to "sugarcoat" Bush's record.

But Lively confirmed to the Times that Staudt had been honorably discharged in March 1972, nearly 18 months before the date of the forged Killian memos.
