As the Iraq War grows more unpopular, mounting casualties trouble the nation. Now comes the revelation that the crown jewel of military medicine which is charged with caring for the wounded and repairing their combat-caused injuries is badly tarnished. Full Focus talks to Congressman Bob Filner about Walter Reed Army Medical Center's shoddy treatment of wounded soldiers, and the larger problem of caring for the military both during and after their time in service.

Guest:

  • Bob Filner  - San Diego Democratic Congressman and Chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee
