Army Secretary Resigns Amid Walter Reed Probe
The second shoe has dropped in the Walter Reed scandal, with Secretary of the Army Francis Harvey handing in his resignation.
Harvey had only been in his post six months, about the same length of time as MG George Weightman, who was relieved of his command yesterday. Meanwhile, the man who preceded Weightman in command of Walter Reed, Kevin Kiley, got a third star and was named yesterday to clean up the mess for which he himself was responsible.
I join the Washington Post editorial board in finding this highly puzzling.
