If some one brings these things up,thier usually done in the service or thier position.Why is that,when infact they saved someone from being hurt or killed and maybe stopped people from getting sick from the conditions.They should be allowed to do thier jobs with out the recourse of others.This gives the military and the goverment a bad name.What happened to this guy.He should have gotten a promotion.This is what happens to the military also and this is why it happens and is allowed.It is'nt right at all.

These are real problems and should be taken care of but instead thier thrown along the side as usual until something else arrises.Why does it take someone quitting and walking away befor its even given consideration.What about the people who are in charge of these things and make big money doing just that.They do not do thier jobs and yet the upper military are fired.When this stuff never makes it to thier desk.Its stopped at a lower level.The person or person bringing it to thier attention and trying to get it fixed should be promoted.This is why the goverment systems never work.They put the wrong people in charge.Please IAP who thought of that?

Fix Walter Reed now and remove the contractors because all they do is rip off the government and tax payers. Put government employees back to work with good management and oversight and these problems will get fixed right. Contractors they charge for things the don't do and much more. Frist of all they hire some of the worst bums in the country that cannot do the job and thats why we have so much cost over runs because they are continually redoing jobs that weren't done right in the beginning. Iraq we open that bucket of worms and now we must close it but we must do right so that country can stand
and defend itself and be proud. We can not cut and run now we started this thing and we must finish it right. This country must not elect another President like Bush and Cheney
they don't have a clue of the real world, we should have stayed on top of Afganistan with troop surge. Sadam hated terroist and didn't trust anyone not even his Sons. Retired Army
Its the old goverment workers and the friends of the pentigon(iap) THAT ARE STOPPING THOSE WORKERS FROM DOING THIER JOBS.WHEN DOES IT NOT STOP

IAP is the 'contractor' that sent the worker into the dangerous situation with water. IAP has contracts that were once covered by Halliburton, KB&R. They all pass these contracts around between themselves.

Thier only allowed to pass these contracts back and forth because they have friends in the goverment or pentigon.Yes they did send these workers in to most likely be hurt,with no consern of thier own.Till someone stepped up and said no you don't.But they had to go to the military and the public to do this and it cost them thier jobs.The person that says they should go back to goverment workers.Thats crazy thier the ones that created these problems.But the ones trying to stop stuff like this and make a differance should be allowed to do just that with out being told to be quite and let it go and don't go to the media.They should be commended.No one needs more people hurt,killed or sick at a Army Medical Facility because of stupidity.Give them more money,well watch how they spend it and even let the public watch the details and results.If the Military allows this man to walk away and lets IAP continue with this then they get what they deserve.No wonder thier firing top Generals.They don't have backbones to put the brakes on all this.What about the Senate and the Congress.Get a back bone and stop just collecting paychecks.Stop having meetings on stupid stuff and get real.Get the president envolved instead of blame him.Let him see it for what it is and then push for him to do something about it.IAP does'nt own or run the world.Stop those big time money makers at Walter Reed and make them do what you all pay them to do.Its your children(Get Real)
