Support the Troops, my ass

Here's the latest example of the Bush Administration, under the Bush Administration, again treating the troops like disposable trash. After all the reports about Vets at Walter Reed, the fact that things like this can happen shows how rotten the head of the fish is:

The U.S. Military is demanding that thousands of wounded service personnel give back signing bonuses because they are unable to serve out their commitments.

To get people to sign up, the military gives enlistment bonuses up to $30,000 in some cases.

Now men and women who have lost arms, legs, eyesight, hearing and can no longer serve are being ordered to pay some of that money back.
