Bush on Walter Reed: "Find out what the problem is and fix it."

Yesterday, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow brushed off as old news questions about Walter Reed Army Medical Center, saying, that "the president certainly has been aware of the conditions in the wards where he has visited."

Today comes news that the president did not, in fact, have a full understanding of the situation:

At the White House, spokesman Tony Snow said he spoke with the president yesterday about Walter Reed and the president told him: "Find out what the problem is and fix it." He said Bush "first learned of the troubling allegations regarding Walter Reed from the stories this weekend in The Washington Post. He is deeply concerned and wants any problems identified and fixed."

Snow said he did not know why the president, who has visited the facility many times in the past five years, had not heard about these problems before.

Will the president speak out more about this now that he knows?
