Bush is Fucked (but the media has to REPORT IT)
"Each of these actions by any member of the National Guard should have generated the creation of many documents that have yet to be produced," AP lawyer David Schulz wrote the Justice Department on Aug. 26.
Bush National Guard records missing
Documents that should have been written to explain gaps in President George W. Bush's Texas Air National Guard service are missing from the military records released about his service in 1972 and 1973, an Associated Press inquiry shows.
Bravo to AP for doing the bare minimum of what we should expect from the media. The reat need to stop playing dumb and look into things. Contact the media and tell them you want to see more about this!! FAIR's Media Contact List
Someone writes, "it's ok for reporters to assasinate the character of a man with forged documents "
whoa, I knew you guys didn't understand the story. You don't understand that Bush has already assasinated his own character with his lack of duty and his lying about the service he should have done. These facts have been established, the media doesn't report it. No one can say they served with him for the time he should have served in Alabama! How is THAT possible? You probably don't know about this either: Documents that should have been written to explain gaps in President George W. Bush's Texas Air National Guard service are missing from the military records released about his service in 1972 and 1973, an Associated Press inquiry shows.
T.M.K. writes, "I see, I see now... we all know Bush lied, so this proves the memos are real in spirit, and since the memos are real, Bush is a liar. But the only reason there are no records that hurt Bush is because Bush destroyed them all and CBS was forced to recreate them without telling us for our own good. Wow. Why didn't I see that before? This is some damn fine kool-aid mister!"
T.M.K., Bush skipped out on doing what he was his duty at the time. No one can say they served with him for the time he should have served in Alabama! How is THAT possible?
And it is a fact that AP has learned that documents should automatically be generated when someone misses a pilot's physical and doesn't show up for 5 months of training. Bush managed to get himself into the Guard BUT he didn't even honor his commitments! The taxpayers paid to train this guy but he made himself ineligible to serve his country because he disobeyed orders. What part of that don't you understand? Right wing pundits are claiming that the public doesn't care, but clearly the case is you don't even understand the facts in order to know enough to care! The media really has managed to make sure millions of Americans don't understand what it is Bush pulled. Clearly you don't understand the basic facts T.M.K.
"Challenging the government's declaration that no more documents exist, the AP identified five categories of records that should have been generated after Bush skipped his pilot's physical and missed five months of training."
Guys you can't see that the Media obsesses over CBS documents, as it ignores uncontested evidence that Bush didn't meet his Guard obligation
Bush never made up five months of missed drills: According to the U.S. News article, Bush "apparently never made up five months of drills he missed in 1972, contrary to assertions by the administration. White House officials did not respond to the analysis last week but emphasized that Bush had 'served honorably.'"
Yes he got away with it by getting an "honorable discharge', that doesn't mean he deserved it, he jsut got away with it! He didn't show up as he was expected to. what part of that don't you understand?
The issue isn't the fact that he got into the Guard, the issue is he didn't obey orders adn that he skipped out for MONTHS at a time. He didn't honor the commitment he swore he would. He twice violated that oath! Again, the media isn't making that clear to you are you guys are being dishonest in what you focus on. The media really is helping Bush, they are not making the facts clear to the public.
