By Walter V. Robinson and Francie Latour, Globe Staff, 2/12/2004
President Bush's August 1972 suspension from flight status in the Texas Air National Guard -- triggered by his failure to take a required annual flight physical -- should have prompted an investigation by his commander, a written acknowledgement by Bush, and perhaps a written report to senior Air Force officials, according to Air Force regulations in effect at the time…
BUSH A NO-SHOW AT ALABAMA BASE, SAYS MEMPHIAN Jackson Baker | 2/12/2004

…Mr. Bush favored the war in Vietnam, but he had the necessary clout to ensure that he wouldn't have to serve there. He entered the Texas Air National Guard at the height of the war in 1968 by leaping ahead of 500 other applicants who were on a waiting list….
The longer Bush doesn't provide his records, the better it will be for the Democratic candidate. Thank God the press is finally doing it's job.

George W. Bush's Lost Year in 1972 Alabama
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 2 (PS) — The result of an investigation into George W. Bush's lost year in 1972 reveals a cocky privileged son who used his family connections to avoid military service in Vietnam and spend seven months in Alabama partying. He clearly skipped out on National Guard duty and avoided a mandatory drug test, all while learning the politics of "dirty tricks," deception and coded racism in the land of George Wallace...

Do As I Say
Slate - 2-13-04
The premise of Bush's plan—which he outlined on Wednesday in a speech at the National Defense University—is that there's a fatal flaw in the 34-year-old NPT. He's right about this. Under Article 6, nations that refrain from producing nuclear weapons will receive assistance in obtaining the fuel for nuclear power plants. The loophole—which Iran, North Korea, and possibly others have exploited—is that, with the right knowledge and hardware, a nation can enrich or reprocess this fuel into weapons-grade uranium. It takes a lot of effort, money, and time, but it can be done.
Under pressure, Bush releases information about arrests

I've been reading about the search within the Alabama Air National Guard for anyone who saw George W Bush during 1972-73. So far the search has come up empty. So far they've interviewed supervisors and personal of the maintenance squadron, the supply squadron, headquarters staff, flight safety and flight operations center. I believe they're asking the wrong people If ANYONE would have seen GWB, it would the bartenders at the officer's club.
Hahha...I have been trying to think of a toon along that same line!! It is amazing that no one remembers serving with Bush in Alabama. I am even more amazed that Dubya hasn't paid someone to lie.

Soldier Accused of Trying to Aid al-Qaida
AP - Fri Feb 13, 3:05 AM ET
A National Guardsman was arrested Thursday and accused of trying to provide information to the al-Qaida terrorist network, the Army said.
"The White House released documents it claims validates the president's (National Guard) service ... When deciphered the documents showed that in a one-year period, 1972 and 1973, Bush received credit for nine days of active National Guard service. The traditional term of service then and now for the National Guard is one weekend a month and two full weeks a year, meaning that Bush's nine-day stint qualifies him only for the National Guard's National Guard. That's the National Guard's National Guard, an Army of None." -Jon Stewart
