"The late-payments episode is the latest in a string of embarrassing cases of VA failures for the nation's veterans.
Earlier this year, it was discovered that three VA medical centers failed to properly sterilize endoscopes, exposing 10,000 patients to infections including the HIV virus.
Last month, the agency sent letters to 600 veterans erroneously telling them they had been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease.
Last year, the VA was embroiled in numerous scandals involving tests and medical experiments on veterans in which officials failed to follow certain standards."
Wake me up when the government becomes less bureaucratic, irresponsible, and incompetent.
