This is real story (the lie ) DoD tells the white house about exposures from chemical among are troops. white house seeking to minimize the fall out. by lie to the us the tax payer , the veterans who die before fact came out. to the VA who denied claim for service connection for MUSTARD GAS EXPOSURE with Army Pfc David Fisher ( VII Corps-3rd Armored Division )the 1st time he fill out a VA claim. My hat is off to Patrick Eddington & wife great job, to bad you don't work there now!

with 1800 chemical alarms going off.
after four days (24-27 Feb 1991) of using NBC Measures at m.o.p.p. level four in the ground war why did we not put on m.o.p.p. gear for Demolition of Khamisiyah Pit (10-13 march 1991) that was a mile or two away from us who were your security! No decontamination was done for my company for the time I was there.

I have had the privilege of knowing the author and working in similar areas. I use the book to give to non-believers. Jack

I'm a longtime reader of intelligence-related books. I have a serious interest in how the most secret parts of our government work or don't work.

Patrick Eddington has written a book that makes me feel like I'm on the inside, walking the halls of Langley, meeting disappointments and frustrations, denials and evasions at every turn. This is not a dry expose of government misdeeds. This book presents, in active, personal narrative, the journey from discovery to action to reaction to confrontation to breaking past the wall of CIA and DOD denials of the chemical exposure of our Gulf War veterans. You watch Patrick and his wife experience career blockages when they try to pursue the truth.

You might think a book like this would be depressing. But it's rather energizing. Full of first-hand knowledge as well as documents (some printed in full at the back of the book,) this is one of those rare books that inspires and empowers. For as frustrating as it is to see high level people in the government making the worse choice at every fork, there is also the beauty of seeing Patrick and his wife braving the storm in the hopes of helping those who would have given their lives to protect the rest of us. I don't mean to play down the hard data he presents to make his argument, but what makes the book a fasinating read is the narrative of the personal events along the way. It's a story of fierce compassion, gritty integrity and an honest-to-goodness commitment to doing the right thing. How refreshing!<P

This is one of the most important books about the Gulf War.
Pat Eddington tells the story in this book of his and his wife's odyssey within the CIA, working to adjust official policy to reflect the actual facts on the ground. Unfortunately, truth was one of the first casualties of the Gulf War.
Interviewing veterans, including key source documents and detailing the shameful way the government dealt with returning veterans of the Gulf War, Eddington reveals a different side of Washington -- a Washington that waves flags in time of war but hides behind accountants when the warriors secure peace.
Let us hope those deployed in the future are treated better. As a long-time activist on behalf of veterans and the author of an upcoming novel on the Gulf War (Prayer at Rumayla: A Novel of the Gulf War) I offer thanks to Pat and Robin Eddington for their dedication on behalf of our country and its defenders.

Having watched DoD and the Department of Veterans Affairs take us through the Agent Orange coverup step by step for financial reasons, I am neither surprised nor amused at our governments finesse as they attempt to deal a similar (albeit more deadly) hand to the Persian Gulf Veterans. Eddington and his wife have exhibited courage in their work. This book is a must for anyone who would try to understand how adept our government has become in stonewalling the truth and rewriting history to suit their needs

Dear Readers,
I urge you to read this book if you are truly concerned about this issue and then get the Senate Committee book indicated at the end of this review. I grew up in Ohio as well as the other reviewer and I can tell you and especially him that he is wrong. I spent 17 months hospitalized after being "gassed in the gulf" and medevacced out unconscious to Germany following a total body seizure and over 6 hours of loss of consciousness. The 12 eyewitness written accounts of what had happened to me were gathered by my Brigade Commander and he included a personal statement that accompanied my medevac file. That portion of the file was sealed and CLASSIFIED was written over its outer jacket. I personally saw over 300 seriously wounded long term nerve gas related patients come in and out of the research ward of one of the military's largest hospitals for over one year. I didn't even recognize my own wife at 2 months after the medevac and could barely speak. Mr. Clueless from Columbus may believe whatever bull Schwarzkopf or any General wants to feed him, but it will never dispute the true eyewitness facts of that war that have rarely been told. In fact many of us now retired army and marine disabled veterans from the Gulf question whether he even received the reports of chemical contamination or whether he wanted greater confirmation due to the relatively low number of serious nerve agent injuries. Columbus should know how the military works and how reporting up the chain of command sometimes gets turned around right on top of you because most careerists are too worried about their ratings to report anything negative to, for example, a Brigade level commander. YOU MUST REMEMBER, the Media was under complete military control during the Gulf War. Had they been with the Saudi unit I was with they would have seen a number of serious injuries in verified areas of chemical detection--that were verified by the Select Senate Committee in eyewitness testimony from Americans and Foriegn Coalition NCO's and Officers--just like the book indicates. If Mr. Columbus wants to keep on believing his own version due to his prior service visits to the local N.B.C. chemical training chamber he can do so without remorse and continue on with his merry life. If Mr. Columbus cares about the truth and wants the real facts and not just from this book, he should write his Senator and get the following factual 160 page testimony and then he can repeal his bogus words and review:
U.S. Chemical and Biological Warfare-Related Dual Use Exports to Iraq and Their Possible Impact on the Health Consequences of the Persian Gulf War. A report of Chairman Donald Riegle, and Ranking Member Alfonse D'Amato, United States Senate, May 25, 1994.
In fact, please send me another copy for one of my disabled friends so that I can give it to him for his pending lawsuit.
By the way, if any of you are concerned, the Veteran's Administration and their hospitals have done a lot of really excellent work with sick veterans and does not believe the released Army and CIA reports from the war. Go see them if you need any help and don't take no for an answer.
By the way Mr. Columbus, the Army is paying me one hell of a lot of money for the rest of my life for what happened. Unfortunately that is the only Admission they will ever make of what really happened over there and YOU end up paying for it.
