"Fired"... must mean something very different for government employees than it does for the rest of us. Apparently it just means he goes back to his previous position at the BOP.

It's a start. There should be more firings. Fire everybody from that position all the way down to everybody who was on guard that night and begin investigations on them. Somebody in there is a footstool for the Clinton's and it needs to be uncovered.
