Following the revelations of corrupt — perhaps illegal — practices by officials working for the Veterans Administration‘s Healthcare System, the American Legion — the largest organization representing American military veterans — on Monday called for the resignation of Obama appointee Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki.
Statements made by a number of whistleblowers regarding a secret waiting list at the Phoenix VA Health Care System may have resulted in the death of at least 40 U.S. veterans has shocked the nation in spite of the majority of news outlets ignoring or burying the story in order to allegedly prop-up a failed President.
“There are also reports that the director of the Phoenix, Ariz., VA facility kept two sets of records to cover up the fact that brave veterans who sacrificed their all for their nation were being treated shabbily by the Obama administration,” according to former U.S. Marine and NYPD police detective Sidney Franes. “I guess that’s the ‘Chicago way:’ keep two sets of books the way the mob bosses do?”
“Imagine the outcry if the terrorists in Guantanamo Bay or illegal aliens — some of whom are hardened criminals — were treated the way Obama’s VA treats U.S. war heroes,” Franes said. “But what do we get from Obama, the Democrats and their sycophants? Silence.”
The American Legion National Commander Daniel Dellinger also named Undersecretary of Health Robert Petzel and Undersecretary of Benefits Allison Hickey as Obama appointees who should be forced to resign or be fired.
In 2013, Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, called on Allison Hickey to resign due to problems with the handling of disability claims.
