We have a real tragedy ongoing

Philip O'Connor reported in the
St. Louis Post-Dispatch that ill veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts are suffering from severe medical conditions because of their exposure to massive burn pits use by logistical contractors to burn contaminated waste. 

Last week a Federal judge ruled that a case may proceed against contracts, Kellog Brown & Root and Halliburton for alleged negligent activity in handling the waste.
