How about any and all from the bush administration where all this began and sounds like it was rampant!! This didn’t just happen, this was ongoing from the beginning!! And from reading all they’ve uncovered so far, including watching the NewsHour discussion, to me it sounds more like the civilian and top military leaders wanted to bury the history especially after abandoning the main missions of why we even sent troops into that region, Afghanistan, with the first drum beats pointed at Iraq then all that actually did come out publicly that they couldn’t bury!!
Nov. 16, 2012 - Missing military records from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — detailed in a ProPublica-Seattle Times investigation over Veterans Day — will be the subject of a congressional hearing next month, the spokeswoman for a House Veterans' Affairs subcommittee said today.
Separately, Rep. Michael Michaud, D-Maine, today called on Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Veteran's Administration Secretary Eric Shinseki to respond to findings of the investigation, which detailed how dozens of Army units and U.S. Central Command destroyed or failed to keep field reports.
Michaud sits on the House Veterans' Subcommittee on Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs, which added the topic to a Dec. 4 session about the Department of Veterans Affairs effort to move its claims and benefit recordkeeping systems into the digital era. read more>>>
