CNN reports Army secretary quits in wake of hospital scandal:

Secretary of the Army Francis Harvey resigned Friday in the wake of recent reports of substandard conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, a key facility treating troops wounded in Iraq.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates announced Harvey’s resignation at the Pentagon, just a day after Harvey removed the hospital’s commander, Maj. Gen. George Weightman, from his post.

A statement from the Army said it had “lost trust and confidence in the commander’s leadership.”

Harvey had been the Army’s top civilian official since November 2004. Before President Bush appointed him to the position, he spent much of his career working for defense contractors, according his Army biography.

Rumor has it that Gates fired Harvey when Harvey said Lt. General Kiley would be in charge of Walter Reed. Kiley is in line to be axed according to “reliable sources.”

But will they fire IAP…the contractors the Army forced through?

That contract is history because it was unauthorized to begin with. Privatization is at the core of many of the deficiencies in the Pentagon.
