WIth all the election noise, there's this

Big, bad Dan Rather still thinks the George Bush National Guard service story he broadcast in '04 is "true":
Rather narrated the September 2004 report, which alleged that President Bush skirted some of his duties during his National Guard service and that a commander felt pressured to sugarcoat Bush's record.

"The story was true," Rather, 75, told radio station WPTF-AM on Tuesday. "We were vulnerable on taking responsibility for it."

Can't quite figure out what he means by "We were vulnerable on taking responsibility for it." Does he think that he and CBS should not have been questioned on it? Or that he wasn't really responsible for the story airing that fateful fall Wednesday? His statement / excuse is semantically null.

Of course he isn't null when it comes to those nifty documents he found:
Pressed further on the authenticity of the report, Rather lashed out at radio host Donna Martinez, saying she had a political agenda.

Oh, dear! It just isn't right that people should question him about those document things. "We were vulnerable", all right! They were fake as hell!
