This Microfilm Will Self-Destruct in Two Weeks

Dan Froomkin, writing on June 25 about the AP's suit seeking Bush's military records:

Associated Press Assistant General Counsel Dave Tomlin told me yesterday that AP reporters began trying to get the documents back in February, but hit roadblock after roadblock.

Tomlin said the AP has been informed that the microfilm in question does indeed exist. Tomlin said that because paper records can vanish and be tampered with, the microfilm "would erase any questions." [Emphasis added.]
