How to Become a Major in U. S. Army Without Really Trying

More from those right-wing wackos over at NPR trying to embarrass the Obama administration:

Two years ago, a top psychiatrist at Walter Reed Army Medical Center was so concerned about what he saw as Nidal Hasan's incompetence and reckless behavior that he put those concerns in writing. NPR has obtained a copy of the memo, the first evaluation that has surfaced from Hasan's file.

Officials at Walter Reed sent that memo to Fort Hood this year when Hasan was transferred there.

Nevertheless, commanders still assigned Hasan — accused of killing 13 people in a mass shooting at Fort Hood on Nov. 5 — to work with some of the Army's most troubled and vulnerable soldiers.

Read the rest here.

You'll find plenty of liberals who know government officials made some big bad mistakes on Hassan and think it would be a good idea to sort out why and how they let the problem fester until it became tragedy--and a fair number who are glad NPR is doing major work trying to find those answers.

Thank the Lord for small miracles.

On the other hand, too bad that liberals created the culture of political correctness in the first place, that the Army was just clumsily trying to adhere to.

In the end, the Army will be pilloried for using poor judgment in its attempt to implement liberal-mandated p.c., just as it would have been pilloried for using poor judgment had it not ever tried implementing p.c.

The lesson in this for the Army is to ignore liberals and do what they know is right. That is, if they're going to be pilloried no matter what.
