So Weightman gets fired and Kiley is the replacement. That sounds like adding fuel to the fire. Additionally these men weill no doubtedly retire with full benefits. A fine job gentlemen. How do you sleep at night while patients have to endure dire conditions IN ADDITION in being wounded?

Shame. Shame... Shame..

Now let see Kiley was in Weightman position then got PROMOTED to the US Medical Commander--Weightman got Promoted to fill KILEY old Command Slot and Kiley became Weightman immediate Commander.

OK---now these conditions existed under Kiley, Kiley get Promoted, Weightman get Promoted take Riley old Command with Riley as his immediate boss.

Now the cat get out of the bag to a News Media and the sh--t hits the fan.

Weightman get Relieved/FIRED, Career Ruined, BUT KILEY AGAIN ASSUMES COMMAND--AGAIN---Now was not he in command prior to Weightman---and was promoted and was Weightman immedaite boss....Did not these conditions exist under Kiley as the direct Commander and immediate Commander of Weightman.

Seems strange Kiley would still be in Command.

Has this nation becme the old Russia? The government Arm dictating Silence when wrongs are made public. It would seem so.

The COVER UP has gone on for years. In 2003 Walter Reed Lt. Gen. Kevin C. Kiley who now is Army's top medical officer, was told all about the multi layered nightmares. He was told shortly after the war began. Kiley even lives across from building 18. Neglect,

KILEY SHOULD BE DISHONORABLY DISCHARGED!
SEND A MESSAGE GATES!

NO damn meetings no 'ONGOING REVIEWS AND DISCUSSIONS" Retired Maj. Gen. Kenneth L. Farmer Jr. used that one up. Said 2 years of ongoing reviews.

Gates YOU CAN FORM A COMMITTEE AND IT IS THE SAME MESSAGE STATUS QUO.

DISHONORABLE DISCHARGES FOR :

Kiley NOW! OUT

Maj. Gen. Kenneth L. Farmer JR. strip his pension and throw him in building 18 to rot! He is responsible for THIS SLUM for two years!

I could spit bullets! What fools do you think we are. DAMN the Reviews, YOU HAVE EYES DON'T you Gates?
Unexceptable

Bush is gona go the committee STALL route. Gates playin politics.

Dishonorable discharge goes to Kiley he was in charge for years.

Putting Kiley back is to intimidate those soldiers left.

America if we care about our troops don't let this die, call elected officials. Please these soldiers are not at Walter Reed's anex's because they want to be. They are stuck. Lets help them.
