Air Force dumped remains of 274 troops in landfill

*** Fundraising:  We wish to take this time to thank those that donated to reduce our deficit and to wish them the very best Christmas season ever.   Our deficit is currently down to $130, and with still some time before the first which gives us some breathing room to spare. We would like to thank those that have contributed so far and to acknowledge what a sacrifice it was on such a holiday season.  Knowing the cost of even the smallest amount, makes us humble and grateful for your thoughts on this season where most of us turn inward and thus the gift, no matter how small, is a big one.

As we mentioned before, you maybe aware, all expenses have gone up, so there is a need this month to make our goal or else we must either take on ads, (thats if the advertisers would deign to grace us with their ads) which I abhor, or suspend our work, leaving the blog up as a reference board for all to read if need be. 

If you have benefited in anyway from our blog and our work, we hope  you will contribute, by clicking on the pay pal button off to the right of the blog.  We appreciate very much the support you have given in so many ways, and pray that you will continue in every way, including commenting and passing this around to others. Bless you all for your support over these almost 4 years.  No matter how it turns out, I truly believe we have all made a difference.  Bless you all, this Christmas and New Years season.

Vatic Note: It has to be a lot more than that.  I remember very well, how upset I was when I found out and sent out an email that many, of our soldiers in Iraq that were killed were dumped in body bags into mass graves and left there forever, without notifying the families.   Is that what happened to our MIA soldiers in the Viet Nam war?   Is that why Kissinger and Nixon never made the North Vietnamese, as terms of ending the war, account for our MIA's?

Heck we only recently found out that our POW's that were never returned or accounted for, are still alive in parts of SE Asia and held against their will, being used as slaves to rebuild their country.  Were the MIA's killed and dumped like so much trash?  Was it because they were goyim?  I don't know, but I do know that everytime I read something like this I get mad.

This below is what happens when you have a foreign nation running your country, using our military for their national interests, and yet, they will willingly tell you how much they hate us goyim and see us as cattle, and this goes to prove it.   I will quit here before I start WW III, only not with those they selected, rather with our foreign occupiers.

I, additionally, found it interesting that the MSM owned by our foreign occupiers of our government, have spilled the beans on this, so my question is "Why?"  They withhold everything else we should have been told, but not this.... its a very BIG "WHY"? Whatever it is, its not in our best interest, that is for sure, so there is some benefit to them, to leak this out to the general public.  Is it that civil war they want to start and we are not cooperating?   Who knows, but its something we should be contemplating.

The incinerated partial remains of at least 274 American troops were dumped in a Virginia landfill, according to government records, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.

Air Force officials said that the dumping was hidden from families who had given authorization for the remains to be disposed of in a respectful and dignified manner, according to the newspaper. There were no plans to inform families, officials told the newspaper.

New information revealed that the practice, exposed by The Washington Post in November, had become very widespread until it was halted in 2008, the newspaper reported. Last month, Pentagon and Air Force officials said that figuring out how many remains were sent to the King George County, Va., landfill would take combing through the records of more than 6,300 troops.

Full story in the Washington Post: Air Force dumped more ashes than acknowledged “It would require a massive effort and time to recall records and research individually,” Jo Ann Rooney, the Pentagon’s acting undersecretary for personnel, said in a Nov. 22 letter to Rep. Rush Holt (Dem.-N.J.), who has pressured the Pentagon for information on the issue on behalf of one of his constituents, according to the newspaper.  (VN: Well, Ms Rooney, If you had done it right in the beginning, you would not have had to do the massive effort, but since it was your fault, you should be held accountable for it and do what is necessary to make it right by these families.  How dare you! )

Holt reacted angrily to the news, the newspaper reported. “What the hell?” he told the Post. ”We spent millions, tens of millions, to find any trace of soldiers killed, and they’re concerned about a ‘massive’ effort to go back and pull out the files and find out how many soldiers were disrespected this way?” “They just don’t want to ask questions or look very hard,” he added, according to the newspaper.  ( VN: why is that?  Because their official figures are about 6,000 US soldiers killed fighting as a surrogate army for Israel,  when in fact, the number, we published on a blog here a few  years back showed by VA numbers, that 78,000 American soldiers were killed in iraq and Afghanistan, so they had to dump them somewhere, where the press would not see the actual numbers.  Like I said, I am going to truly enjoy those nuremberg trials for the press and others.)
According to records the military gave The Post, between 2003 and 2008, 976 fragments from 274 personnel were cremated, incinerated and dumped in the landfill. An additional 1,762 remains, which could not be DNA tested because of damage from explosions, were gathered from the battlefield and dumped in a similar manner, the Air Force told the newspaper. The widow of an Army sergeant killed in Iraq told the newspaper she was furious when she was told how some of her husband’s remains were dumped in the landfill.

“They have known that they were doing something disgusting, and they were doing everything they could to keep it from us,” Gari-Lynn Smith told the newspaper. She had been pressing the military for information on the subject for four years — ever since she got a report on her husband’s autopsy and learned that some of the remains had not been put in the casket for his funeral, according to The Post.

Changes in disposal policies came about after an in-depth review at Dover was ordered in 2008 by then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates. http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/12/08/9290603-report-air-force-dumped-remains-of-274-troops-in-landfill
