So Dana Priest...

...of the WP breaks this story about how woefully the care is for outpatient vets at Walter Reed Medical Center. They live in utter squaller. And the Secretary of the Army, Francis Harvey, learns about it by reading her very article, then blames it on lack of leadership.


I contributed, for me, a rather large sum to the Brooke Army Medical Center for the Intrepid center they built in San Antonio. Good enough, as it goes. But if once these vets leave their primary care units and are then designated as outpatients and can't get the required and necessary follow up care they need, then what the fuck. Isn't the Secretary a leader? DUH? It pisses me off that these people sit it their suits and uniforms on the hill and then bury their heads and asses in the sand. This has been going on for years and needs to stop. NOW.

It's been going on forever and it will continue forever because the beaurocrats don't have to use the services that they oversee.
