Army Surgeon General Retires in Wake of Walter Reed Scandal

Army Surgeon General Kevin C. Kiley abruptly stepped down under pressure from military superiors, the third top Army official forced out in the fallout from revelations of shabby treatment of wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

Kiley's removal underscored how the controversy, which began with reports of dilapidated outpatient housing and a nightmarish bureaucracy at the Army's flagship hospital, has snowballed into a far broader problem for the Bush administration.

Heads are rolling over this fiasco, and rightly so. I hope the new hires in their respective positions actually institute tangible reforms and not cosmetic changes.

I still say responsibility for this fiasco reaches all the way to the top. Photo ops and press conferences with wounded soldiers aimed at rallying support for the WOT while just around the corner our wounded heros are being kept in moldy, run down ruins of rooms is simply inexcusable. It is also damning evidence and a sad commentary on the skewed priorities of this administration.
