Theory On the Bogus Nigerian Yellowcake Uranium Rodger A. Payne's has a theory on the bogus yellowcake uranium document that Joseph C. Wilson debunked to sheds. Payne's theory is plausible. He links to Symour Hersh's and Josh Marshall's thoughts on the subject. It sounds like Marshall is about to crack the story open. Is it just me or is Bush starting to look really beatable. He's got all these scandals on national security going on at once. If he looses the national security issue, I don't see what else he has to run on.

Kevin Drum May Have Broke the AWOL Story George W. Bush got 4 credit points (which are earned for retirement) for serving time on October 29, 1972. He received this on an ARF statement of points earned. What is an ARF statement? I let Drum answer that. The answer, as you can see from the top line, is that it is an ARF document, as is this record from 1973-74. So what is ARF? I 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 is the reserves, 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. more inside
