Bush's cocaine use?

What is the truth about George Bush's cocaine use? Well, the truth is that he admitted as much on an FBI questionnaire upon being a nominee for 2000. And the answer was yes. It's in the Dallas Morning News from 1999 and ABC. But they let it all drop.

This might explain the gaps in Lt. Bush's service records during 1972-73 when his commanders in Texas and Alabama never saw him report for duty. It might also explain why Lt. Bush did not take a physical, which included a drug test in 1972. The failure to take the physical resulted in Lt. Bush being grounded and no longer able to fly planes (until the famous Mission Accomplished flight).

We know George Bush did cocaine, but as a man of truth, why won't he admit it?

Bush's arrest for cocaine in 1972 is reported in "Fortunate Son: George W. Bush and the Making of an American President" by J.H. Hatfield.

Staffer of former President George H.W. Bush corroborated W's cocaine use.
