Bush Lies to Wounded Troops at Walter Reed
In his most recent installation of pathetic political theater, George Bush visited Walter Reed medical center where he toured an empty hospital room with a wide-screen TV and then lied to about a hundred wounded troops. He told them, "The problems at Walter Reed were caused by bureaucratic and adminstrative failures." The reality is that the problems at Walter Reed actually began when the Bush-Cheney junta tried to oust the VA bureaucracy and replace it with a wholly owned, for-profit subsidiary of Halliburton.
