The Army's new acting surgeon general said Tuesday she is concerned about long-term morale because the military lacks money to hire enough nurses and mental health specialists to treat thousands of troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan.
It's funny how we have enough money to send them off to war, but not enough to treat them when they get back.



If this were a company, it would be like saying, "We have enough money to send you off on this six month business trip, but we don't have the money to fund the insurance coverage our company set up for you..."



There is something seriously wrong with this picture.




"When the original plans were made, we did not take into consideration we could be in a long war," said Maj. Gen. Gale Pollock.
And the fault for that lays squarely at the feet of Donald Rumsfield, who actually ORDERED NO post-war plans be prepared.

But of course, I'm sure Bush stands behind him...
