From one of my longtime client papers, the Memphis Flyer two witnesses who state definitively that Bush never showed up for Guard duty in Alabama:
MEMPHIS Two members of the Air National Guard unit that President George W. Bush allegedly served with as a young Guard flyer in 1972 had been told to expect him and were on the lookout for him. He never showed, however; of that both Bob Mintz and Paul Bishop are certain…
Recalls Memphian Mintz, now 63: “I remember that I heard someone was coming to drill with us from Texas. And it was implied that it was somebody with political influence. I was a young bachelor then. I was looking for somebody to prowl around with.” But, says Mintz, that “somebody” better known to the world now as the president of the United States never showed up at Dannelly in 1972. Nor in 1973, nor at any time that Mintz, a FedEx pilot now and an Eastern Airlines pilot then, when he was a reserve first lieutenant at Dannelly, can remember.
If this isn’t national news tomorrow, everyone in the mainstream media deserves to be fired.
…also: Col. William Campenni (retired), the guy who’s been writing letters claiming that Bush did too uh huh fulfill his duty, is going to be on Washington Journal tomorrow morning (7:30 am EST). I’d strongly urge the early birds among you to call CSpan and mention the Memphis Flyer article.
