Recently, the Pentagon was called out by me and by others for failing to get its new brain trauma facility in Bethesda fully up and running. Now they've responded to our criticisms—with typical Byzantine bureaucracy and towering ineptitude.

Instead, the Byzantine Pentagon bureaucracy, in its infinite curiousness, directed a press person from Deloitte (how much is the Pentagon paying this contractor for this service?) to send me the following email:

This tragic situation can be fixed and fixed quickly by one man: Defense Secretary Bob Gates. He is a formidable leader of the Pentagon, and he knows how focus and to get things done. He, the Obama administration, and the rest of us, owe at least that much to those waiting for help.
