Summary:

The Associated Press used a FOIA lawsuit to obtain military records about then-Texas Air National Guard member George W. Bush and his unit from the Pentagon, despite claims by Bush and the Pentagon that such records did not exist. The documents offer evidence that Bush did not complete his service in the way he and his spokespeople contended he had.
