Bankruptcy does not remove history.

Those accounts you included in your bankruptcy existed for a while before you filed and they must remain on your credit history for at least 7 years.  The bankruptcy itself will remain under "Public Records" for 10 years.  You cannot have your credit history erased just by filing bankruptcy.  It must fall off in its own due time as required under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
