The Wider Shame of Walter Reed

Funny, the war cheerleaders must have forgotten about Walter Reed and the soldiers they so lovingly support at last week's conservative love fest, which was attended by thousands of young Republicans. Hmm...where were the military recruiters?

This is from the New York Times editors:
"It is impossible not to feel fury at the shameful neglect of wounded soldiers at Walter Reed’s outpatient facilities, just a few miles from an oblivious and neglectful White House. There is plenty of blame to go around. But the fundamental responsibility rests with the president and his former defense secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, who stubbornly insisted on going to war without sufficient resources — and then sought to hide the costs of their disastrous mistakes from the American public."

Hmmm...sounds like the media doesn't want to encourage the voters to associate the problems with federalized heath care in the military with federalized health care for the general population. Probably a good call on the media's part...
