Froomkin clarifies (and rocks).
The microfilm that was "inadvertently destroyed" is not the same as the microfilm that AP is suing to have released:
The microfilm that the Pentagon reported destroyed was housed at the Defense Finance and Accounting Service in Denver and consisted only of a few months of payroll records -- albeit some of them from during the hotly contested third quarter of 1972.
The Associated Press lawsuit that Tomlin filed is for the microfilm of Bush's entire personnel file from the Texas Air National Guard. Those records are in Austin.
Gee, I thought that "all" the Bush service records had already been released? That's what Bush promised, so it must have happened, right?
Missed one didja, you fucking asshole. Let's see how this archive gets 'inadvertantly destroyed'. I stole Lambert's whole post from Corrente, but you can see it here with comments.
