Bark if You're AWOL

Calpundit says that Bob Fertik has a copy of the infamous "torn document" that appears in George W. Bush's military file. Fertik's copy is NOT torn, but that might be the least of Dubya's worries:

[Drum] asked Bob Rogers, a retired Air National Guard pilot who's been following this for some time, and what follows is his interpretation of what happened.

ARF stands for Army Reserve Force, and among other things it's where members of the guard are sent for disciplinary reasons. As we all know, Bush failed to show up for his annual physical in July 1972, he was suspended in August, and the suspension was recorded on September 29. He was apparently transferred to ARF at that time and began accumulating ARF points in October.

ARF is a "paper unit" based in Denver that requires no drills and no attendance. For active guard members it is disciplinary because ARF members can theoretically be called up for active duty in the regular military, although this obviously never happened to George Bush.

Read the post and the comments. If this has legs, we could see the unraveling of the Bush administration...
