Veterans Disability Lawsuit Tossed, Again

<originally posted 2008-12-18 09:56:19 -0500. bumped by carol>

Yesterday another Class Action Lawsuit was presented this time at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, the previous was presented a few months back in California federal court on complaints from Veterans of OIF and OEF, and others, as to disability payments delayed and or denied.

When we returned from Vietnam many of the Vietnam Vets, needing care at Veterans clinics and Veterans Hospitals as well as attempting to file and receive disability benefits of already diagnosed Occupation Theater physical and mental ailments went through much of the same treatment. Those coming back and developing very serious ailments from coming in contact with heavily sprayed area's of the Defoliants, mostly Agent Orange, were not only denied benefits and treatment the Government and Chemical Companies Denied they were hazardous to humans. We are going through the same All Over Again.

Once Again America, You Failed and Are Failing!!!

Not to long ago and most certainly not a 'once upon a time', though the response by the country would leave one to think some were telling fairy tales because the rest paid little attention, a group of soldiers were returning from an occupation of a destroyed small country a half a world away.

As we returned many started developing a wide variety of ailments, physical and mental, well maybe a few of the rest were listening about the mental issues for they were telling my brothers it was all in their heads.

Abu Nidal on U.S. Payroll?

If Robert Fisk's reporting, and the files they are holding, are believable, apparently we had another of those Evil Terrorists People on our payroll, working and spying for us. It wouldn't surprise me. Things never seem to change especially when the names and faces of long time inner Washington keep popping up! I caught this Report: Notorious Palestinian Mercenary Was Hired by U.S. to Find Link Between Saddam and Al-Qaeda over at Alternet. But it can also be found at the original report in the Independant who have the files mentioned in Fisks writing.

Iraqi papers obtained by The Independent state that Abu Nidal was "colluding" with the U.S.

Many knew of, and tried to stop, the 'collusion' of the U.S. with Saddam, supplying him his wants of 'chemical' and 'biological' weapons, WMD's, in his war against Iran who were using this type of warfare arsenal.
