Looking back - how VA blocked C-123 claims for so many years
How? VBA's Agent Orange desk just made up whatever VA needed to refuse C-123 claims. Here is one of their lists...every point false but sufficient to make sure all C-123 vets were denied VA medical care and other benefits. VA has refused to release their basis for these points, even under the Freedom of Information Act requirements.
Especially deceptive is the last point, as there simply no "VHA scientific data" at all...only internal policy that VHA had to "draw the line" against claims. That's exactly what VHA told the Associated Press!
