Ok, now which wing of the political party do you suppose was behind the suppression of Gulf War Illness? Is this what the Republicans call supporting the troops? If I were a troop, I would probably not vote for Republicans, knowing that if I got sick because I served, that they would not take care of me. -O.L.

Panel: Gulf War Illness Confirmed
Thomas D. Williams, Truthout: “A federal health panel released conclusions Monday that evidence strongly and consistently indicates hundreds of thousands of US troops in the first Gulf War contracted long-term illnesses from use of pills, given by their own military to protect them from effects of chemical weaponized nerve agents, and from their military’s pesticide use during deployment.”
