Speaker Pelosi lays the Walter Reed scandal at Bush's feet calling it part of a "pattern of neglect" by the WH admin.
Linking it with FEMA failures in the catastrophic Katrina aftermath, and lack of health care for 1st responders, Pelosi apparently forgets that she/Congress are the architects of the specifics of failed gov't entities, including the historically feeble FEMA. The blame of failed Pentagon and military programs - a Pentagon this WH largely inherited from previous administrations - does not rest solely the shoulders of a sitting President. Where was their oversight in the past decades? Do they think this building and it's condition happened only in the last 5 years?
While Bush is as surprised and appalled as the rest of us at "bldg 18", and has ordered condition inspections of other facilities to make sure this is not happening elsewhere, Ms. Pelosi instead concentrates on scoring political points in her "Hate Bush" campaign. She would be far more effective going back to Congress and reviewing the purse strings and structure of these top heavy bureaucratic programs they themselves create and oversee.
