Controversy Continues Over Bush Service Records

by TChris

The struggle to obtain the complete records of President Bush's military service continues.

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.

The records released to date came from federal clearinghouses. AP is seeking separate records that Texas law required the state to keep. According to the suit, those records may help the public decide whether Bush performed his required service between May and October 1972. The AP also wants to investigate "allegations that potentially embarrassing material was removed from Bush's military file in 1997, when he was running for reelection as Texas governor."
