Is there any way that BushCo's connection to this company ISN'T screwing the troops?

Was General Weightman fired for doing a bad job of overseeing Walter Reed Army Medical Center?

Or was he fired to stop him from testifying before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform about a memo he wrote that said that the privatization of services at Walter Reed could put "patient care services at risk of mission failure"?

Reportedly, the privatization of Walter Reed, which began in 2000, has caused an erosion of services and an exodus of qualified individuals.

What company was awarded this lucrative gig, you ask?

Why it's IAP Worldwide Services, run by Al Neffgen, a former senior Halliburton official.

I know, babies. It would be funny, if it weren't so damn sad.

Oh, and will someone please tell Michele Malkin (who apparently is missing the right wing harpie spotlight since Ann "men who don't find me attractive are faggots" Coulter has been hogging it recently), so she'll stop writing about how Walter Reed is a lesson about the failures of "government-run health care"?

Hipocrisy I say. On the one hand they ask us to "support" the troops while on the other they can't find enough ways of screwing tax payers and soldiers...
How qucik they were too to find a scapegoat, even better for them if it was to silence him, now I wonder if he'll be going to work for the same company that just got him fired....
Everyone wins!!

I had my say on the VA in Some Guy's comments. The VA was a mess before it was 'outsourced'; however, how could anyone think they could TAKE even more?

I'm sickened.

How do people that become wealthy at the expense of decent people sleep at night? Then they talk Jesus talk? WTF?????

Hipocrisy - yeah.
