Thw WP is going apeshit on the White House lies about Bush’s TANG service. And worse, the White House is mad, now that 60 Minutes produced documents that prove pressure was put on TANG officials to relieve him of flight status (he didn’t report for a physical) and didn’t complete complete flight obligations. They areputting the blame on the cover up on the DOD. HAHAHAHAHA. You mean Bush didn’t know he was suspended?
“In releasing Bush’s flight records, White House spokesmen yesterday expressed frustration over what they depicted as the Pentagon’s failure to produce a full and complete record of the president’s military service.
‘It’s clear that DOD [the Department of Defense] did not undertake as comprehensive a search as had been directed by the president,’ said White House spokeswoman Claire Buchan, just days after assuring The Post that Bush’s full personnel file had already been released. ‘We have again asked that they ensure that any and all documents [relating to Bush’s military service] are identified and released.’
A Pentagon spokeswoman, Lt. Col. Ellen Krenke, said Bush’s flight logs were found at the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, which is the central repository for veterans’ records. She said the logs were found among a batch of records sent to St. Louis from Norton Air Force Base in 1993, which were originally thought to contain records of active-duty officers rather than of National Guardsmen such as Bush.”
Guess the Bush team forgot to go there to do some file burning.
