Well according to a investigator bud of mine near Killeen Texas - finding a freelance writer in Austin by the name of Michael (or Mike) Smith is like trying to find smooth unscrambled skin on Rosie O's butt. He shouldn't be that hard to find since according to the CBS report Mr. Smith: "had worked on stories pertaining to President Bush for many years." Including being a researcher on "First Son" a book by Bill Minutaglio.
Like I said, in spite of some left wing claims that, "We called C-BS and they told us that the Michael Smith of our RaThErGaTe isn't the Michael Smith of DoWnInGgate!" I have found out that CBS isn't talking about either Michael. In fact they refuse to answer the question and refer me to the report they published about the Memogate affair.
So I'm now in the process of ascertaining Mr. Smith (of London) whereabouts about the time of Mr. Smith (of Texas) appearance during those infamous meetings with Marla Mapes of CBS.
I may have something tomorrow....Stay tuned.
