Still pushing Operation Fortunate Son
McAuliffe seems to have released this statement just minutes after the CBS broadcast. Hmmm....
WASHINGTON (AFP) - The top Democratic Party official accused US President George W. Bush of lying to the American people about his National Guard service during the Vietnam War, even though CBS News said it had erred in using dubious documents about the matter.
"The American people already know that strings were pulled to get President Bush into the Guard; and while in the Guard he missed months of service and was grounded," Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe said in a statement.
"We know that George Bush was a fortunate son, a child of privilege, who refuses to admit that he used his connections to avoid fulfilling his requirements," he continued. "But what we still don't know is why Bush didn't fulfill his duty to his country or why he has continued to lie to the American people about it."
