WASHINGTON - President Bush ordered a comprehensive review Friday of conditions at the nation's military and veteran hospitals in the wake of a scandal surrounding care for wounded troops at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington.
The White House said the president would name a bipartisan commission to assess whether the problems at Walter Reed existed at other facilities.
The action came after The Washington Post documented squalid living conditions for some outpatient soldiers at Walter Reed and bureaucratic problems that prevented many troops from getting adequate care.
No doubt they'll be trying to figure out how reporters managed to talk to the soldiers and how to prevent this sort of PR nightmare in the future.
Feh. Without the stories in the Washington Post, nothing would have changed there. Remember, republican members of congress knew about this years ago. And they did nothing. Heck of a job, army!!
