In discussing the scandalous story of nightmarish conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center on my show today, I called upon Paul Reickhoff again.
He’s the outspoken director of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, which has been pushing a legislative agenda on Capitol Hill on issues just like this. He called for a congressional investigation of how these outpatient facilities fell into such disrepair and why our veterans are being treated so poorly. Like Reickhoff, I want names named and people fired.
I also played some comments from Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) who claims that if Congress had known about this earlier, they would have stepped in and fixed it right away (you know, like they did with Katrina). This from a politician who was part of the Congress that offered no oversight of how the war was run in Iraq or at home.
