As of this writing, Mr. Kerry has failed to sign a Standard Form 180 giving the electorate and the press access to his Navy files.
So why hasn't the AP sued to have his files released, like they did Bush?
AP Sues for Access to Bush Guard Records
WASHINGTON - The Associated Press sued the Pentagon and the Air Force on Tuesday, seeking access to all records of George W. Bush's military service during the Vietnam War.
Filed in federal court in New York, where The AP is headquartered, the lawsuit seeks access to a copy of Bush's microfilmed personnel file from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission in Austin.
The White House says the government has already released all the records of Bush's military service.
Controversy surrounds Bush's time in the Texas Air National Guard because it is unclear from the record what duties he performed for the military when he was working on the political campaign of a U.S. Senate candidate in Alabama.
And there's nothing controversial about Kerry's record in Viet Nam that would merit this kind of action from the AP? They don't want to clear the air, like so many had demanded after the Swiftees' allegations came to light?
We know what this election is about. It's about a political party that made a deal with the mainstream media to try and get rid of Bush. If Bush wins, I expect to see major shareholders movements to clean house among these media companies over the next several years.
