Vietnam, McNamara and Veterans

Update: From Veterans Today, VA Police Hack Medical Files of Wisconsin Vet, Seek Prison for More PTSD Vets

Bob Herbert writes today in After the War Was Over that "Robert McNamara realized early on that Vietnam was a lost cause, but he kept that crucial information close to his chest. How did he ever look at himself in a mirror? ... The obscenity of war is lost on most Americans, and that drains the death of Robert McNamara of any real significance."

The obscenity continues to this day, destroying the lives of our veterans.

No matter what the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and Dr. Sally Satel say from their plush offices, veterans experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) commonly suffer for the rest of their lives.

But the U.S. Dept of Veterans Affairs (VA) needs the AEI if they are going to attack veterans for “tenaciously pursuing a claim for benefits” like what happened to Wisconsin veteran Keith Roberts.
Now, we hear that right now VA investigators are going after another veteran, one Robert E. Anthon of Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin.

Anthon's supporters, mostly veterans, are working to head off a prosecution for fraud against Anthon whom the VA is targeting for reasons that only warmakers and chickenhawks can fully comprehend.

First the VA goes after a veteran's benefits, leaving them destitute and still suffering from their ailments, then capriciously the Inspector General's office tries to build a case for fraud.

These VA bureaucrats and their shills are pond scum. Will keep you posted on the Anthon affair. A couple of pissed-off combat Marine veterans are on it that I know of.
