The Pentagon released a statement today that military records that could have shed more light on President Bush's military service were accidentally destroyed. The payroll records that were destroyed were for the first quarter of 1969 and third quarter of 1972. Despite Bush releasing his military records, there is still no evidence that Bush reported for duty in Alabama between 1972-1973.

Source Yahoo News:

The letter said that in 1996 and 1997, the Pentagon "engaged with limited success in a project to salvage deteriorating microfilm." During the process, "the microfilm payroll records of numerous service members were damaged," the letter said.

This process resulted in "the inadvertent destruction of microfilm containing certain National Guard payroll records," including Bush's, the letter said.

But there was no new evidence given at that time to show that he was in Alabama during the period when Democrats questioned whether he performed his service obligation.

The records showed that Bush, a pilot, was suspended from flying status beginning Aug. 1, 1972, because of his failure to have an annual medical examination. His last flight exam was on May 15, 1971. There were no new documents, during that February release, to shed any light on Bush's service in Alabama.

The sons of ex-presidents get all the advantages, don't they? Well, this either an amazing coincedence that only those two periods were missing, or this is yet another cover-up in Bush's favor.
