AP Seeks Release of Bush Military Records

Associated Press

WASHINGTON - The Associated Press asked a federal judge Friday to order the Pentagon to quickly turn over a full copy of President Bush's military service record.

The White House has released partial documentation of Bush's military service in the Texas Air National Guard but has not complied with the news service's Freedom of Information Act request for any record archived at a state library records center in Texas, the AP said in a court filing.

I thought his service records were "accidentally" destroyed?

Certain payroll records.  the ones covering the time he was 'serving' in Alabama.

I thought his service records were "accidentally" destroyed?

I think his records were destroyed. The AP is seeking his National Guard records that are stored in Texas. So we're talking about 2 sets of records in this instance.

I'm not bush-bashing here, but haven't there been a number of cases where the administration has been slow to turn over information.
