One day before CBS’s much-anticipated segment on President Bush’s record in the National Guard, the Boston Globe published a major expose that concludes he “didn’t meet the commitments” of service. As the story points out, “Bush fell well short of meeting his military obligation” in two separate periods during his Guard service. The White House has insisted it released all documents to prove otherwise, but a new report today proves those denials were false. As the Associated Press reports, “Months after insisting it could find no more records of President George W. Bush’s Air National Guard service, the Defense Department has released more than two dozen pages of files” ? though still none which prove the president fulfilled his obligations. The documents also show, “Bush was not with his Texas Guard unit the 147th Fighter Interceptor Group in 1972 when it joined in a 24-hour active alert mission to safeguard against surprise attack  in the southern United States.”
