General Kiley, Toast

According to Bloomberg

Lieutenant General Kevin Kiley, the U.S. Army's surgeon general, was forced to retire, the third official to lose his job after disclosures last month of substandard care for injured soldiers at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington.


Acting Army Secretary Pete Geren asked Kiley to retire yesterday, a senior Defense Department official who asked not to be identified told reporters at the Pentagon. Kiley, 56, submitted his retirement letter that day.

Too bad. He should have been stripped of his rank and retirement and fired outright.
