Agent Orange Depleted Uranium

I was on the Presidential advisory committee that examined Gulf War Syndrome at the end of the Gulf War. I did not believe that the kind of monitoring and surveillance of our soldiers and civilian contractors in that war was adequate to detecting much less explaining the syndrome that some exhibited. Not much has been done to rectify the inadequate epidemiology and health monitoring present in that conflict in the current Iraqi conflict. That is what makes this inevitable report from Iraq so very disturbing.
