Second Salvo

Dear Mary Mapes --

Following is the last paragraph of an AP story that is moving on the wire:

(Kerry "Message Maven" Joel) Lockhart said Mapes asked him the weekend before the story broke to call Burkett. "She basically said there's a guy who is being helpful on the story who wants to talk to you," Lockhart said, adding that it was common knowledge that CBS was working on a story raising questions about Bush's Guard service. Mapes told him there were some records "that might move the story forward. She didn't tell me what they said."

The suits move fast. More is on the way.

All Best -- Ellisblog
