Sounds like some of our military veteransare finally sick of being used as political props.
Retired Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton, among retired military officers who took part in a conference call about Bush’s visit, praised the president for seeing wounded soldiers. But, he added: “I’m convinced he would honor them more if he would refrain from using soldiers as props in political theater.”
“I would be very happy to see him do the Walter Reed visit more like the commander and secondarily as an inspector general, rather than as a politician,” he said.
“Walter Reed is not a photo-op,” [Bob] Muller [president of Veterans for America] said. “Walter Reed is still broken. The DOD health care system is still broken. … Our troops need their commander in chief to start working harder for them.”
