Members of WeAreChange Ohio confronted former Secretary of State Colin Powell about the use of depleted uranium in four separate wars-- including Gulf Wars I & II, Kosovo and Bosnia. Powell admitted to its use, but denied its relative harm, repeatedly calling it "useful."

Powell downplays the harmful birth defects those exposed to D.U. have suffered, suggesting that he has been around D.U. himself and suffered no damage.

Audience members also asked the former Secretary of State about falsified intelligence on Iraq, which Powell handily dismissed.

Depleted Uranium has been directed linked with:

Increased rates of immune system disorders and other wide-ranging symptoms, including chronic pain, fatigue and memory loss, have been reported in over one quarter of combat veterans of the 1991 Gulf War. Combustion products from depleted uranium munitions are being considered as one of the potential causes by the Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses, as DU was used in tank kinetic energy penetrator and machine-gun bullets on a large scale for the first time in the Gulf War. Veterans of the conflicts in the Gulf, Bosnia and Kosovo have been found to have up to 14 times the usual level of chromosome abnormalities in their genes.

I confronted, face-to-face, my district Congress-Critter a year or so ago, about the same issue, in front of a group of voters.

He gave me a deer-in-the-headlights look and said, "No, it's Saddam that using depleted uranium."

Duh! What an uninformed dummy. "No, Congress-Critter, the USA Empire is!"

I asked him why he supported a war in Iraq that was damaging the environment for generations to come.

He wouldn't, couldn't answer.

The people around me, (some who had PHD's), commented to me that it appeared he had no clue the USA military was using D.U..

My congressman Mike Turners daughter used to go to Gymnastics with my daughter. My wife met his wife I guess. I don't think he hangs around these parts anymore since he became a fed.
