“Unfit for any commissary”

Scrappleface reports on “previously unseen transcripts of 1973 testimony by a young George W. Bush before a Senate panel investigating atrocities committed by stateside National Guardsman during the Vietnam era.” Bush’s “weekend winter warrior” testimony revealed Genghis Khan-style atrocities committed both on and off base, “not isolated incidents but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command;” crimes that “this country, in a sense, made them do.” These included short-sheeting a fellow guardsman’s bed, shooting mailboxes and road signs for fun, and raiding the base commissary for Pop Tarts.
