Matt Yglesias explains how the Bush administration is making us more likely to get hit by Nuclear bombs.

At this point, one would be unjustified in believing that the Killian memos are authentic. If this is true, we can conclude that CBS News is a bunch of idiots. If the case that Bush went AWOL depended on that document, Democrats would have reason to worry. Of course, the case can be constructed on other documents entirely.

The memo doesn't actually accuse Bush of being AWOL, does it?

And, how reliable is the memo and its analysis? I mean, have you reviewed the underlying regulations? Is his description accurate? Is there some other reason for taking his description as accurate?

The memo does not accuse Bush of being AWOL. Hence my above comment that the case can be made based on other documents.
