I want to apologize to the Veterans of the United States. Men and women who have been willing to give the last full measure of devotion — something I was not willing to do — that enables all of us to live under a blanket of liberty, freedom, and enjoy the blessings thereof.

I have failed them. This administration has failed them. I take full responsibility for knowing about this travesty and not doing enough, actually not doing anything.

I have accepted the resignation of General Shinseki. A replacement will be announced later. My focus is on rectifying this situation immediately and it has my personal attention. We will initiate an independent investigation and I have directed the Attorney General to do so. No more rhetoric. I failed and ask that you accept my humble apology.
