Bush Apologizes

President Bush has apologized for the conditions which soldiers endured while at Walter Reed. The President said:

The problems at Walter Reed were caused by bureaucratic and administrative failures. The system failed you and it failed our troops and we’re going to fix it. It is not right to have someone volunteer to wear the uniform and not get the best possible care. I apologize for what they went through and we’re going to fix the problem.

I wholeheartedly agree with the President that the problems at Walter Reed are “bureucratic and administrative”; not the actual care that is provided. What continues to bother me, however, is that this is not a new discovery. I’ve blogged about this already, so I will not rehash an old post. Suffice it to say, this is not a new problem.

As the current leader of the nation and the commander-in-chief, apoloogizing was the right thing for the President to do, but this is not his fault.

    It’s like a dad apologizing for his messed up kids.
