Committee subpoenas former Walter Reed chief

[Committee on Oversight and Government Reform] Committee Chairman Henry Waxman and subcommittee Chairman John Tierney asked Weightman to testify about an internal memo that showed privatization of services at Walter Reed could put “patient care services… at risk of mission failure.”
