Bush finally accounts for lost time in National Guard: “I was drunk and high”

[Edition 82] President Bush has denied going AWOL from the National Guard, and has instead revealed that he spent six months in 1972 on an unrelenting drug and alcohol bender. “I have previously been unable to give verification of my whereabouts during this time. And that’s because I was so off my dial, I don’t really remember where I was. I never went off the base – in fact most of the time I was too paranoid to leave my room.”
