JAMIE RENO EXCLUSIVE: VA Whistleblower Who Spoke Before Congress Says VA Has Still Not Addressed His Allegations



In an exclusive story today, award-winning Newsweek and Daily Beast journalist Jamie Reno wrote about VA researcher-turned-whistleblower Dr. Steve Coughlin and that fact that months after an explosive March 2013 Congressional hearing, VA still has not addressed Coughlin's serious, far reaching allegations.

As Reno so aptly summarizes it,
"Coughlin told Congress six months ago that VA routinely disseminated false information about Veterans’ health, withheld research showing a link between chemical weapons and Gulf War Illness, rushed studies out the door without taking recommended fixes by an independent board, and failed to offer crucial care or even provide a call back to veterans who came forward as suicidal."
But, according to Coughlin, VA has yet to fully address these and other serious allegations.

See the full story at the link below, which is an excellent read on this very important issue that affects countless hundreds of thousands of veterans on issues ranging from Gulf War chemical exposures to burn pits in Iraq.
