National Guard Update

NATIONAL GUARD UPDATE….AP has filed suit to get access to George Bush’s complete military records, not just the stuff he felt like handing out:

Filed in federal court in New York, where the AP is headquartered, the lawsuit seeks access to a copy of Bush’s microfilmed personnel file from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission in Austin.

I’m not sure this will turn up anything new, but that’s the whole point of asking, isn’t it?

Of course, the really curious part about this is why it took so long. Why didn’t they do this back in March?
