p. 44, Phillips - - who has never served in the miitary, and therefore is quite ignorant and just repeating what he has been told - - tells the reader that George W. Bush spends 5 weeks in enlisted basic training at Lackland AFB - - obviously Bush washed out of ENLISTED basic training, since it was 8 weeks - - then Phillips states he was recommended for 2nd Lt, or officer's rank? One is never awarded officer's rank, whether they have washed out of enlisted basic training - - or successfully completed it!?!?! Next Phillips tells us Bush was given on-the-job training in jet piloting at his ANG squadron - - NEGATIVE! One must attend a designated USAF flight school, one never is according flying status in such a manner, that's a major, major NO-NO, Kevin! You see, Phillips gets his time right at Lackland, because he doesn't know any better, but the rest is pure silliness. Bush never qualifed for ANY rank in the military or reserve, he never attended officer's training, he never attended flight school, he was fraudulently impersonating an officer, while also fraudulently on the personnel rolls of several ANG wings or squadrons. And that's the super-loser many morons voted for! [Classic past example when the Warren Commission's chief counsel, Rankin - - who also never served in the military - - makes the mistake of telling a WaPo reporter back in 1964, that they, the Commission, is going to get to the bottom of what Lee Oswald was doing at Monterrey - - where Oswald was stationed for training after USMC boot camp. As most all military vets know, that has to mean language training at the Defense Language Institute, where Oswald was trained in Russian, prior to his Japan tour.]
