Description

The New York Times investigates how the Pentagon ignored the complaints of Gulf War Veterans who claimed they had become ill as a result of their service, and covered up the extent to which American troops might have been exposed to chemical or biological weapons. The veterans' complaints had long been known to the public, but the New York Times was the first to make public the evidence that many Americans serving in the Gulf had apparently been exposed to residues of chemical or biological weapons. As a result, the Pentagon first conceded that some soldiers might have been exposed and then dramatically raised the number at risk. (August 11, 22, 28; September 20; October 3, 19, 30, 1996)
