They endorsed John F'n Kerry for President.
When the army heard there where rats in the building, maybe they thought...
When my husband was in Basic Training at Ft Dix, in 1966..he ended up in Walson Army Hospital with pneumonia....and with a temperature of 105, he had to clean the floor under his bed, for inspection!!!
They were also treating his condition with a quart of water (or Kool Aid) every hour!!
That is ridiculous ( I don't mean that I don't believe you. )
Army Times is owned by the Gannett group which everyone knows is anti Bush
I wonder how long it will be before we see Mr. Ziad's name associated with this particular meme.

Scuse me but I was an officer back then and that did not happen under my hospital watch. Did not happen under anyone I knew. We had issues but mistreatment of any patient was not one of them.
By the way dear, we did not have inspections where patients were ill and under care. We had housekeeping staff. The sick were treated with respect. After discharge? I have no idea.
Regarding the original WaPo story -- I'm not surprised that the repairs were slow in coming, Walter Reed is scheduled to be closed in 2011, when a new facility is to be completed on the grounds of Bethesda Naval Hospital/National Institute of Health. As in the past, when BRAC posts are identified the repair and maintenance funding is cut.
This is a case of Rumsfeld and the BRAC pannel being so focused on cutting bases no longer needed for the Cold War...and not thinking about what is needed for the new GWOT. And also for posting of units being brought back from Europe.
I didn't know this. Thanks.
Like they care about the troops. /sarcasm>
Army Times Dot Com is a private operation owned by anti-American Islamofascist sympathizers.
Quite a complex situation.
When I was in the Marine Corps (ancient history) we used to read Navy Times which was a pretty thick weekly tabloid with all kinds of information including names of USMC/Navy KIA's for the week. I can't remember it taking a political slant either way even in those turbulent times. I will check the AT website. Thanks.
Worse than that: The media want to make it like the problems go all the way up the chain of command. All part of their get the President at all costs strategy.
Their hat eof he president is pathetic to say the least. And this only because the dems could not steal the election in 2000
