Bush ANG service timeline

Tuesday, February 10, 2004

There has been a lot of discussion in the media and elsewhere recently about President Bush’s military service, or lack thereof. Documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act indicate that he was not, at a minimum, a very enthusiastic participant in the Air National Guard.

Some of this can be confusing, since it’s not clear how all the documents and dates relate. In looking around the web, I found this table, which helps to understand the flow of events.

Again, I ask, where is the indignation? Where is the moral outrage? How dare the administration question the qualifications of John Kerry or Wesley Clark?

– Interesting: Today Scott McClellan released pay records to prove that George Bush fulfilled his obligation. No comment on why he refused his medical exam, or why an expensively trained pilot was allowed to cease flying on his own. Also, still no one who claims to have actually seen Bush on any of those training dates.
