DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX THU SEPT 09, 2004 22:45:32 ET
Marjorie Connell — widow of the late Lt. Col. Jerry Killian, the reported author of memos suggesting that Bush did not meet the standards for the Texas Air National Guard — questions whether the documents are real on tonight's NIGHTLINE, sources tell DRUDGE.
I was angry, because here they are going back and pulling records of a man who is deceased twenty years, who is not here to explain what any of these documents said or supposed to have said, and I just found it appalling. I was sick that here without warning his pictures are up there, his name is being battled back and forth and I, livid I guess is a better word for it."
"I think there was so much untruths being said that that frustrated me and that I knew that if Jerry were alive today that he would just, number one he would be turning over in his grave to know that a document such as this would be used against a fellow guardsman."
"That is what aggravated me so much, was that he can not be here to say and yet they can drag his name onto television, making bad accusations about our president and a man that he respected and I know for a fact that he thought this young man as a second lieutenant or first lieutenant was an excellent aviator, an excellent person to be in the guard and was very happy to have him become a member of the 111th F-I-S."
"Number one, he would not have typed because he did not type. Number two, the wording in these documents is very suspect to me. I just don't believe that, it looks like some things may have been picked up out of a document and then other things just made fictitiously to fill in things, to make them flow. I just can't believe that this is his words, my late husband's words."
"Not a typist, definitely not a typist. We had no computers at home but he wasn't a typist, and what is remarkable to me is that he was a person who did not take or make copious notes. He carried everything in his mind and he didn't have time to make notes."
"I am still presently looking for other documents. I have found some that say the 147th on them and they go back to 1970. I can not find any at this moment that have any 1972 indications on them other than a, and I told her that, a flight schedule that he had just signed his name to."
"Unfortunately when we moved I put things in different locations and I just don't know where everything is at this moment and I was searching for them and I still have not found any other documents. I do have all of his flight records though and they are in my hands."
"He discussed with me how proud he was to be able to go and pin the wings on young George and to meet then Mr. Bush, I've forgotten if he was with the CIA or what office he held at that time and Barbara bush."
"He left the 147th, flew to wherever George got his wings and Jerry pinned them on him and he was, came home just, he told me about that and how proud he was to have met the family."
"He would just write little notes on the back of anything. Unfortunately or fortunately as the case may be, if he needed to jot something down he would jot it on any paper that he could find, on a card, like a calling card that you would have, or just little bits of paper. He always knew where everything was, and if he needed to pull it out of his wallet on a little note or something, but he just didn't take many notes."
