Swimming with the Razorfishes

Thursday, September 09, 2004

I saw the Ben Barnes interview on CBS last night. More allegations, but no smoking guns. Barnes claims to have given preferential treatment to George W. Bush to get him in the "champaign unit" of the Texas Air National Guard. No surprise there. George W. Bush has always lived a life of privilege, receiving special treatment because of his family ties.

More interesting were the new ANG memos that surfaced. They pretty clearly indicate that Bush was declared unfit for service in the Guard. At that point, according to regulation, he should have been assigned to two years of active duty service, but was allowed to continue working in the political campaign in Alabama. I'm sure more details about this will surface; detauis surrounding Bush's service, why he was not assigned to active duty, and why these documents were not released until now.
