AP INTERVIEW: SYRIA OFFICIAL WARNS OF IRAQ THREAT [Excerpt] 

 

 

 

 

“What is happening in Iraq is dangerous and threatens the security of the entire region,” [Syrian Arab Republic Information Minister Omran] al-Zoubi said. 

 

 

“It threatens the security of the Gulf, of Iran, Turkey and the entire Middle East.  It also touches directly the security of Europe and international security.” 

 

 

Al-Zoubi said the international community including the U.S. [The World Tyrant / NATO] has adopted policies that “encouraged” the spread of “terrorism” in the Middle East. 

 

 

He added that the world must unite its efforts to eradicate this unfolding threat. 

 

 

“Confronting the armed terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq is a national duty.  The Iraqi army is confronting those in Iraq and Syria is confronting those in Syria,” he said.

VA CHALLENGED ON HANDLING OF WHISTLEBLOWER CHARGES [Excerpts] 

 

 

 

 

In a letter to President Barack Obama, Carolyn Lerner of the U.S. [World Tyrant] Office of Special Counsel said Monday that the VA consistently acknowledges problems but says patient care is not affected. 

 

 

“This approach has prevented the VA from acknowledging the severity of *systemic* problems and from taking the necessary steps to provide quality care to veterans,” Lerner wrote to Obama.

AP IMPACT: VA FALLS SHORT ON FEMALE MEDICAL ISSUES [Excerpts] 

 

 

 

Already pilloried for long wait times for medical appointments, the beleaguered Department of Veterans Affairs has fallen short of another commitment: to attend to the needs of the rising ranks of female veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, many of them of child-bearing age. 

 

 

Even the head of the VA’s office of women’s health acknowledges that persistent shortcomings remain in caring for the 390,000 female vets seen last year at its hospitals and clinics —despite an investment of more than $1.3 billion since 2008, including the training of hundreds of medical professionals in the fundamentals of treating the female body. 

 

 

Army Sgt. LaQuisha Gallmon of Greenville, South Carolina, whose daughter was born two months ago, said she had been authorized to see a private physician of her choice for prenatal visits and delivery.  But because the paperwork hadn’t been fully processed when she went to an outside emergency room for complications in her sixth month of pregnancy, VA has refused to pay the $700 bill, she said. 

 

 

“I called the VA women’s clinic and they told me everything was approved for me to get outside care and I should be getting the packet in the mail,” said Gallmon, 32, who served six years in Iraq, Germany and Fort Gordon, Georgia. 

 

 

“Right after that, I wound up in the ER for complications, and a week later I received the letter saying they wouldn’t pay for it.”
