AP Sues over Bush Military Records

It's about time. I mean, when the Bushies did their little document dump and official Washington decided the story "was over," it was still the case that many of the important questions were left unanswered - including, of course, whether or not all the records were actually released.

WASHINGTON - The Associated Press sued the Pentagon and the Air Force on Tuesday, seeking access to all records of George W. Bush's military service during the Vietnam War.

Filed in federal court in New York, where The AP is headquartered, the lawsuit seeks access to a copy of Bush's microfilmed personnel file from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission in Austin.
