60 Minutes Piece Feels More Like a Cover-up


60_pitts_103_100x75Delay, Deny and Hope That I Die. Sounds a promising title for a piece on the despicable scandal that is the U.S. Dept of Veterans Affairs (DVA). “Two wars and a recession have significantly increased the claims handled by the U.S. Dept. of Veteran’s Affairs, slowing the large bureaucracy and frustrating many veterans,” reads the teaser. But watching the 60 Minutes segment, it looks like the piece got shut down, carefully crafted not to either name names or point to systemic failures other than vague references to culture and claims and some wars that had begun somehow.     

If 60 Minutes looks like it lost its punch, not to mention rigorous fact checking, it’s because it has. What could have been a blockbuster was reduced to a limited hangout. The DVA was created and planned to fail. Does anyone really think you can wage war and pay for the damages?

The target of the piece, the DVA, is worthy of many hits, but 60 Mintues seems to have gotten into the protection racket. The military-industrial complex is safe and sound, but veterans are still screwed.
