Americans for Truth is a group of dedicated individuals
determined to present to the nation the truth about public safety and the
probability of mass casualties in the event of a national disaster including
nuclear terrorism. We are determined to expose the truth regarding:
1) The risks and health hazards of uranium and
2) The total lack of emergency preparedness in the
Veterans Administration to assist in the event of a nuclear
3) The coverup, the lies, and the mismanagement by
the VA the veterans' health care, especially in relation to radiation
exposure during the Gulf War. The VA has no doctors with expertise in
internal radiation contamination.
The use of "Depleted" Uranium DU in the Gulf War and
the medical consequences is a nightmare. The soldiers were totally unaware and
uneducated about the health hazards of DU exposure. The military thought the
health risks were outweighed by the increased effectiveness of the depleted
uranium tanks and shells.
For almost seven years the truth has been hidden behind
smokescreens, coverup and outright lies. The weight and complexity of the
coverup and the cowardliness of the media to help expose the truth is a story
in itself. Truth always comes out. It came out through the Internet and now it
is leaking out into the real world. (See Dan Fahey's report on the the April
4, 1997 Meeting with the Pentagon's Persian Gulf Investigating Team PGIT
regarding Depleted Uranium Exposures in the Gulf War. Available on the:
National Gulf War
What we have done:
1) We engaged in an unsuccessful five month campaign to
get out the story of the radiation contamination of the Gulf War veterans and
the VA conspiracy to deny them treatment. Some of the TV news programs and
newspapers we contacted did interviews but watered down the story or didn't
publish it. NBC cancelled at the last minute.
2) We sent letters to Congressmen, Senators and
President Clinton to protest the coverup and the firing of Dr. Durakovic, the
only doctor in the VA system who has expertise in radiation
3) We sent medical information to the Presidential
Advisory Committee on the Gulf War Illnesses. They ignored it.
4) We wrote a petition to Senators and collected
signatures to protest the injustices and the coverup in the VA.
5) We organised and held a march in front of the White
House on April 26th, '97.
6) We have surfed the internet downloading endless
Congressional and Senate Hearings and useless information telling veterans how
to deal with the inefficient VA and how to get used to being sick for the rest
of their lives. We also found a few good articles.
What we are doing now:
1) We are continuing our signature protest . We need
100,000 signatures, one signature for every veterans who came back from the
Gulf War sick. Please help us.
2) We are organizing another Rally on May 23rd 11 A.M.
- 3 P.M. in front of the Wilmington VA hospital to protest the "firing" of Dr.
Durakovic, the only physician in the VA system who had the expertise and the
courage to demand the proper medical testing for Veterans exposed to
3) We will help organize major speaking events. Dr.
Durakovic is available to present the medical facts with all supporting
4) We are investigating serious alegations of human
experimentation involving radioactive materials and gulf war
The VA is fully aware of the seriousness of the use of
radioactive materials in human experimentation. They were recently ordered to
investigate this particularly in reference to plutonium and other actinides
being used on terminally ill patients. We have evidence of the current use of
radioactive materials being used on Gulf War veterans for experimental
purposes. The evidence will be presented in our legal action.
What are our goals?
1) Eliminate and replace the management of the VA
hospitals who have systematically conspired to eliminate radiation specialists
and deny testing and treatment for DU exposure. The VA has done some public
relations work to offset the accusations regarding the coverup and lack of
treatment. The Baltimore VA even went so far as to say they had a program to
study the effects of DU exposure in veterans and to invite veterans to get
tested. However when Joyce Lashof, chairman of the Presidential Advisory
Committee went to investigate their claims, she discovered they had no
2) Involve doctors who are specialists in radiation
contamination and seek international collaboration.
3) Get veterans groups involved so we can piece
together which units were exposed to DU, for how long and under what
conditions; e.g. were they breathing dust from exploded tanks, handling
damaged DU tanks, present at the Doha fire? Until recently the DoD and the VA
were only willing to admit that veterans who actually have pieces of DU
embedded in their bodies had been exposed . Because of our campaign to get
treatment for 24 soldiers of 144th Transport Co. they have recently been
mentioned, but still have not received the tests that Dr. Durakovic
recommended 5 years ago.
4) Demand that these 24 veterans get the
5) Educate all veterans so that they can demand the
6) Find a law firm interested in taking on this case.
Perhaps the manufacturers of DU weapons and tanks can be sued to provide funds
for the testing and treatment of vets.
