The Associated Press has conducted an analysis of Bush’s "military" records and identified "five categories of records that should have been generated after Bush skipped his pilot’s physical and missed five months of training."
For example, Air National Guard regulations at the time required commanders to write an investigative report for the Air Force when Bush missed his annual medical exam in 1972. The regulations also required commanders to confirm in writing that Bush received counseling after missing five months of drills.
No such records have been made public and the government told The Associated Press in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that it has released all records it can find.
Imagine my surprise.
White House spokeswoman Claire Buchan said there were no other documents to explain discrepancies in Bush’s files.
No, of course not.
