Update on the Ft Bragg video in the last post:
The Army has arranged a news conference at 2:30 p.m. today to respond to the video.
A spokeswoman for U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole said Dole’s staff is contacting Fort Bragg and Pentagon officials today in response to a just-posted YouTube video that depicts soldiers living in deplorable conditions in a base barracks.
The spokeswoman, Amy Auth, said Dole’s office was unaware of the video until The Fayetteville Observer asked for a response this morning.
“We are certainly looking into it,” Auth said, noting that Dole has called for accelerated funding for new Fort Bragg housing.
So that's good. Turns out, the Army was simply blissfully unaware there was a problem. I knew it had to be something like that.
