Whitehouse may release more military records
The Washington Post ^ | 16 Sep 2004 | Michael Dobbs

Posted on 09/15/2004 10:17:11 PM PDT by Racehorse

In a related development, White House press secretary Scott McClellan hinted that more documents regarding Bush's National Guard service may soon be released. Asked whether officials in the White House have seen unreleased documents, McClellan called that "a very real possibility." Other officials with knowledge of the situation said more documents had indeed been uncovered and would be released in the coming days.

As if the mix were not intense enough already . . . Could be really bad news for CBS and the Dems . . . I hope.

Bush should release no more records until Kerry signs releases his with a Standard Form 180.

C'mon...we all know how Kerry can do a 180!

Does anybody know if Bush has signed SF180? We know Kerry hasn't. Seems like a good point to get out there if true.

I wonder just which lamestream FRAUDcasting superstar forged the next set of bombshell ANG memos.

I hope they used fixed font this time to make it a little more challenging for us.

He didn't need to. He just ordered all of his records released. A little perk of being CIC.

My "No" was based entirely on posts I've read around here. I have no links. If somebody can definitively answer the question either way, I'd welcome it.

Bet I know what it is too! Bush's last medical in May 1973 reported him to be a "pilot on flight-status" which means he was never suspended. Bet he took the flight exam before he went to AL and the WH now has those records.

I'd let the critics stew a bit longer. Hope it makes Rather look like a vindictive nutcase.

From all this CBS, AP and the Boston Globe have been ratted out. Amazingly the others in MSM have been responsible.

She plays a lot of games. I hope it does not run in the blood.

And just think, if Terry McAuliffe cries that they are forgeries, we can just say, "Hey, that doesn't matter; it's what's in them that counts!

I watched the Press Conference and Scott McClellan did not hint any such thing. This White House has done a masterful job of handling the forged document flap. Nobody will convince me that the White House didn't know the CBS documents were forgeries before they released them to the main stream press. They knew they would cause a fire storm of scrutiny and never uttered a word, just handed out the documents as if they were legit.

Remember that "funny feeling" that maybe Bush has been sandbagging Dan Rather and CBS all along on the whole Alabama Guard thing? That funny feeling just got funnier.

The Washington Times reported on August 18:

At the White House, press secretary Scott McClellan said he couldn't say specifically whether Mr. Bush signed Standard Form 180, but the president did request and release his own military records in February. "I don't believe he signed any form, but he did authorize making his military records available publicly," Mr. McClellan said. "We have released all the records, and reporters were allowed to look at his medical records as well."

I'm pretty sure that Hannity's wrong. Bush has never signed the 180 Form. Bush is a poker player and this records thing has been a face card that he's been waiting to play for years in my opinion.

Stretching the truth at least.

The White House Website has the video of the Press Conference for all to watch. Scott McClellan did not say what Dobbs has suggested

Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't the White House claimed more than once over the past four years to have released all of these records, only to have new stuff surfacing intermittenly again and again?

Damn, are these records kept in the same box as Hillary's old Rose Law Firm billing records? Geez, this is getting ridiculous.

I believe President Bush signed the 180 Form the last time the RATS decided to beat this dead horse again. The Pentagon released 100's of documents within the past year. How else would his dental records would become public if he didn't?

The Dems are desperate and the entire country can see it
