records have been declassified for public release. 16 years later
99.993% is classified , and the Pentagon has vowed to reclassify
these records. This include Confidential Records that should have
been released at the 15 year mark. They were not, and not at 20 years,
25 years, or 30 years. To protect private interest that profited from the war
and protect government officials from over 44,000 mistakes made there.
On February 14th 1999 I sent OSAGWI a FOIA asking for the bulk
of its records names be declassified, and sent to me. I received a
partial reply from General Vesser in a box with 2,877 pages, and
two CD's. On the CD was the Structured database file and other part
was a unstructured file. Again, only of the 42,943 files on the
public server. In the Nov 5th1999 response letter from OSAGWI to
me they explained they were processing the classified portion of the
log sheets for me. That was the last I ever heard from them on paper
concerning this FOIA. It remains mostly unanswered to this day
OSAGWI database file of 42,943 files
OSAGWI response to me concerning partial response to FOIA
on the other 6,000,00 files.
The Pentagon hides behind Executive Order 13292 so that the bulk
of what happened in the Gulf remains hidden from the public. Except
this is criminal intent to withhold information of neglect, misconduct,
mishandling, and much worse during the Gulf War. The very same
people who say nothing happened are the ones with full knowledge
of those records, and vow to conceal them at all cost. The same people
who lead us back to Iraq again under false terms, and created yet another
disaster to live down.

It all kind of came together watching Congress deal with Trump, just how
openly dishonest America has become. How each side knew what the other
was doing in Washington DC, and how far the abuses went. Just how far
national security has only become a tool of the rich to cover up there tracks.
Then when there fellow billionaires dont like it, turn on each other.
How can I possible get the Gulf war records released when a hand full of
very crooked people control our countries darkest secrets unopposed. As
each President since 1990 knows what is hidden at NARA. They have to
cover it up, or risk exposure. Just like Trump hinted at 911 once the heat
was on him. Give the Bush family a black eye. Detract from him.
Then I watched the Pact Act in play. Congress tried to kill it just like it tried
to kill PL105-368 in 1997. The irony is, this is a toothless law that really wont
grant very many service connections. Which is why VA is embracing it now
like it "always' endorsed it? OMB and others in VA picked its weak points
apart and already plan to stall like they did with Gulf War vets. To minimize
payouts, care, and the actual veteran that need it the most. Figure about
less than 5% even getting anything out of this, and 30% rating or less.
The new trick with VA is to poison the research aspect of this, and redirect
the funds to other projects like they did with the WRIISC. In about 5 years
people will see this when its too late. Because, VA does not have to publish
where the money actually goes. No accountability.
Ive cut the rest of Gulflink off. Might as well. Veterans wont rally, and VA is
not accountable to Congress or the vets. Pact Act was a bone to lull these
people back to sleep. Its NOT a victory. Its not sweeping, and filled with
loop holes. Ive been at this 25 years, and Ive seen it up close most of that.
Clerk of the house, and HVAC didnt even warn these folks.
Well, come October is the great credit card defaults of all those people who
lived on credit most of the last 2 years. Bled dry by the rich, live for today
as its all going back to normal next week? Keep spending. Its wiped out
the poor who now have maxed out. The damage is too great, and trillions
in derivatives will vanish over night as the banks go into margin call. Then
China and Russia will make there moves in the chaos.
Im surrounded by idiots. Watching them tug at a very fragile thread in a
dozen directions. Powerless, and having to brace for the obvious. What
could I possible know, Im just a poor dumb vet. I have no value to anyone.
Just because Im not wealthy, and ruthless?
Simple is better in all things. Living on so little. Keeping away from the
distractions, and empty promises. Go devalue yourselves. Im going to
focus on my plants, chickens, and ignore you all. America gutted itself,
and is a lost country. Its going to learn from its mistakes shortly. That
living on credit is a very bad idea. Inflating to infinity.
Good luck with all that people. Im scaling back and focus on common sense
stuff. As I know better on so very many levels, and Im done explaining them.
Go fake each other out. See where we all end up a year from now.
