(Rep., Senator or Media)
The existence of the Gulf War Illness has been
debated and to date, the official government position is that the illnesses
reported by the majority of the vets are stress related. The argument regarding
the exposure of our troops to chemical weapons rages on and the issue of
biological exposure has yet to be openly addressed. Thousands of our vets
are sick and many have already died. It is a communicable illness. This
situation demands an immediate response.
In 1994, Sen. Donald Riegle came forward with
the following information through a national press release and Senate Report
103-900 in which stated:
1) Chemical and biological weapons were used
in the Gulf War
and our troops were
exposed to these deadly agents.
2) Our troops are sick and dying.
3) 76% of the troops interviewed by Riegle's
reported passing the
disease to at least one other person.
(The disease is communicable.)
4) The Dept. of Commerce and the CDC had full
of deadly biological agents to Iraq in direct
the Geneva Convention and International Law.
Members of the Senate in 1994 and the media
had access to this information and have remained silent. Many veterans
have died and their families destroyed for the lack of action that should
have been immediate. Therefore, please respond to these questions Specifically.
1) Subsequent to the release of Sen. Riegle's
report on May
25th, 1994, and the
news release of Feb. 9th, 1994, what
actions have you taken
to inform the American people
and its veterans of
this communicable disease and to protect
our nations blood
2)What actions are you Now taking to help our
obtaining real treatment
for their ailments?
3)What actions are you taking to eliminate
USC Title 50,
chapter 32, sec. 1520,
which allows the testing of deadly
chemical and biological
agents on the American people
without their consent
In the past, inquiries of this type were answered with form letters.
That kind of response to issues of this magnitude is both insensitive and
callous. Your failure to respond to this letter will indicate that you
support the suppression of this vital information and the spread
of this contagious disease and that you are an active participant in
this conspiracy of silence.
Please know that the action (or inaction)
that you take on this issue will be published along with your picture (when
available) via newsletters, flyers, posters, advertisements, FAX-trees
and the Internet. The cover-up of this information is an obvious threat
our national security!
Eagerly awaiting you reply,

Below is a standard form letter you can use to email or snail mail

Dear (State Rep or Senators name),
After reviewing some laws on the books I would
like them removed. They are:
USC Title 50, Chapt.32, 1520-"Use of human
subjects for testing
of chemical or biological agents by Department
USC Title 50, Chapt.32, 1524-"Agreements to
provide support to
vaccination programs of Department of Health
I would like these removed in total. If there
is a problem I wish to refer you to SR 103-97, the "Rockefeller Report",
viewable at (http://www.gulfwar.org/rockrep.html).
As a concerned individual I feel this is the
right thing to do.
