Ex-Guardsman: I Contacted Kerry Campaign

by RB2D2 / September 18, 2004 8:32 AM PDT

A retired Texas National Guard official mentioned as a possible source for disputed documents about President Bush's service in the Guard said he passed along information to a former senator working with John Kerry's campaign.

Also Saturday, a White House official said Bush has reviewed disputed documents that purport to show he refused orders to take a physical examination in 1972 and did not recall having seen them previously.

Received an honorable discharge. Oh yes, I've heard that. Over and over. And I don't doubt it. However, I sit here and think: Would the son of a Senator receive anything less regardless of what the records said?

Oh my point of posting the news article in the first place was that I thought the board could use a discussion on a new topic for a change. Happy

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Bush the elder a Repersentative, but not a Senator?

RB2D2, then why did you say " Would the son of a Senator receive anything less regardless of what the records said?"?

Still believe the statement, as it stands, would probably be true. Senator or Congressman.

Why cannot this obsession with PRIOR SERVICE..........

......be allowed to die, regarding BOTH candidates.

VAdm Route, the Navy IG, said it best (which has been reported here earlier):

"Conducting any additional review regarding events that took place over 30 years ago would not be productive", he wrote. "The passage of time would make reconstruction of the facts and circumstances unreliable, and would not allow the information gathered to be considered in the context of the time in which the events took place".

You're right of course, Del. I really hadn't meant to haggle over the past records (although I must admit that's what it looks like). It has more to do with how it came about that CBS got the story in the first place. I had been wondering if Bill Burkett would admit to being the one that supplied the information. I don't understand why he didn't just go on the air and speak his piece.

Del, I have tried to post news about what's going on in today's world but not too many are interested in talking about that.


It's like, "Let's keep our heads buried in some 30 year old sand, today is too painful, we may be made to feel responsible". Sad
