To blame what had been a lack of communication between the CIA and FBI that began under Clinton's presidency along with several crucial missed opportunities as being Bush's fault when the same miscommunication continued under his watch before 9/11 is unconscionable.

It was that "wall" the Commissioner's report blamed as being responsible for much of the misinformation and miscommunication leading up to 9/11.

Why it was even there should be the question.

We have a disengaged president who is more annoyed than outraged when confronted with incompetency or wrongdoing within his own administration - the latest being the VA oversight - who isn't the least bit interested in getting to the bottom of anything.

Just can't be said enough.

kind of goes out the window when you consider that Bush had been trying to find an excuse to invade Iraq since the first day he took office. maybe that's why.....

Bush Administration Ignored 9/11 Warnings

For those who never knew, the Bush White House received numerous warnings from the counterterrorism desk at the CIA of an imminent attack by Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida on the United States.

Ii wonder what made bushie boy believe there were wmd's in iraq when the CIA told him the information was suspect?

Or Hans Blix?

Or even the French, who were doing business in iraq?

Hmmm.... he must have had his own agenda!!! That explains everything!

Well gee son. You blamed CRA for the financial debacle.

Any time frame on that? Or are you simply going to run as you normally do?

Valor and Squalor

When Salon, the online magazine, reported on mistreatment of veterans at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center two years ago, officials simply denied that there were any problems. And they initially tried to brush off last month’s exposé in The Washington Post.

But this time, with President Bush’s approval at 29 percent, Democrats in control of Congress, and Donald Rumsfeld no longer defense secretary — Robert Gates, his successor, appears genuinely distressed at the situation — the whitewash didn’t stick.

Yet even now it’s not clear whether the public will be told the full story, which is that the horrors of Walter Reed’s outpatient unit are no aberration. For all its cries of “support the troops,” the Bush administration has treated veterans’ medical care the same way it treats everything else: nickel-and-diming the needy, protecting the incompetent and privatizing everything it can.

What makes this a particular shame is that in the Clinton years, veterans’ health care — like the Federal Emergency Management Agency — became a shining example of how good leadership can revitalize a troubled government program. By the early years of this decade the Veterans Health Administration was, by many measures, providing the highest-quality health care in America.(It probably still is: Walter Reed is a military facility, not run by the V.H.A.)

But as with FEMA, the Bush administration has done all it can to undermine that achievement. And the Walter Reed scandal is another Hurricane Katrina: the moment when the administration’s misgovernment became obvious to everyone.

The problem starts with money. The administration uses carefully cooked numbers to pretend that it has been generous to veterans, but the historical data contained in its own budget for fiscal 2008 tell the true story. The quagmire in Iraq has vastly increased the demands on the Veterans Administration, yet since 2001 federal outlays for veterans’ medical care have actually lagged behind overall national health spending.

To save money, the administration has been charging veterans for many formerly free services. For example, in 2005 Salon reported that some Walter Reed patients were forced to pay hundreds of dollars each month for their meals.

More important, the administration has broken longstanding promises of lifetime health care to those who defend our nation. Two months before the invasion of Iraq the V.H.A., which previously offered care to all veterans, introduced severe new restrictions on who is entitled to enroll in its health care system.
