- The Preventive Psychiatry Newsletter
has written to its subscribers telling them that the real reason the former
Veterans Affairs Secretary, Anthony Principi, recently resigned was because
he has been involved in a massive scandal covering up the fact that Gulf
War Syndrome was caused by the use of depleted uranium, according to the
SF Bay View.
- In the article Arthur Bernklau, executive
director of Veterans for Constitutional Law, reportedly wrote that "thousands
of our military have suffered and died from, [and depleted uranium] has
finally been identified as the cause of this sickness, eliminating the
guessing. The terrible truth is now being revealed." Bernklau went
on to detail several alarming statistics. The historical disability rate
amongst soldiers last century was about 5 percent, although it approached
10 percent during Vietnam. But due to the use of depleted uranium in the
battlefield, 56 percent of the 580,400 solders that served in the first
Gulf War were on Permanent Medical Disability by 2000. 11,000 Gulf War
veterans are already dead. Now 518,739 Gulf War Veterans, almost all of
them, are currently on medical disability.
- Principi, under the order of the Bush
Administration, had been allegedly covering up the disastrous results of
using depleted uranium since 2000. However, with so many soldiers having
serious health problems it has become impossible to keep secret.
