Accountability

I guess he did a heckuva job even though he was fired because of the scandals at Walter Reed that occurred on his watch. Maj. Gen. George Weightman the Walter Reed Army Medical Center commander has been appointed the new commanding general at Fort Detrick and will also take command of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, which is headquartered there. Weightman has been cooling his heels while assigned to the Office of the Surgeon General, but now has another chance to do another heckuva job.

This is amazing to me. In the officer corps as I understand it, it's one strike (often, a small one) and you're out. This guy must be very, very, very well-connected, or some deal was made wherein he took the fall, but with some guarantee that he'd be rewarded for doing so. I don't get it at all.
