YESTERDAY THE Post reported that Lt. Gen. Kevin C. Kiley heard years ago from a veterans advocate and even a member of Congress that outpatient care at Walter
Reed Army Medical Center was distressingly squalid and disorganized. That
commander proceeded to do little, even though he lives across the street from
the outpatient facilities in a spacious Georgian house. Also yesterday, the Army
announced that Maj. Gen. George W. Weightman, the head of Walter Reed since
August, had been relieved of his command. His temporary replacement? None other
than Gen. Kiley.
I encourage all of you to read this editorial. I hope that Kiley is called to testify in Congress. He needs to be fired ASAP.
