"I Apologize."

By Remy Benoit

From the AP and MSNBC Bush apologizes for conditions at Walter Reed
President makes first trip to center since veterans' neglect was exposed.

I have to ask, what about insufficient training;
what about insufficient matériel;what about relief time? Maybe with those, maybe with an exit plan, there would be less injuries.

From the IAVA Walter Reed Fiasco Results in Positive Changes.

From the AP, Scott Lindlaw, and Yahoo News AP: Gen. tried to warn Bush on Tillman.

From the AP and CNN Iran note ties nuclear stance to fear of attack.

From CNN White House criticizes Pelosi's planned Syria visit.

From the AP and CNN Bush: 'We're going to fix' Walter Reed.

The President is the head of "the system," as Max Cleland pointed out so well on "The Situation Room" with Wolf Blitzer. The casualties continue, each and everyday. It is time for a time line, and accountability. This is no time for passing the buck. You cannot morally legitimize making Veterans without plans for caring for them. It is just plain wrong.
