    MSNBC.com: Bush orders review of military hospitals

    From the article:"... The White House said the president would name a bipartisan commission to assess whether the problems at Walter Reed existed at other facilities....

    The commission to be named by Bush is separate from a review panel appointed by Gates to investigate outpatient care at Walter Reed and the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The presidential panel will look at all U.S. military and veteran facilities, according to White House deputy press secretary Dana Perino."

    Here's another related story. Army Secretary Francis J. Harvey has resigned because of the Walter Reed situation.

    Walter Reed fallout: Army secretary resigns

    From the article: "The surprise move came one day after Harvey fired the two-star general in charge of the medical center in response to disclosures of problems at the hospital compound.

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Harvey had resigned. But senior defense officials speaking on condition of anonymity said Gates had asked Harvey to leave.

    Wow,

    I guess we can start wagering on whether Gen. Kiley will last the weekend now.

    Much as I hate to see a distinguished career go down in flames, the buck truly stops at the commander's desk.

    Justice may just be served... it would be a shame if Kiley escaped his own culpability in all of this. he could have seriously tackled these issues during his tenure, instead of passing them along to his replacement.

    Do general officers get OPRs? I think his needs to be amended.
