MOVE OVER PHOENIX - OAKLAND MAY BE
© 2016 MilitaryCorruption.com
In recent time, the Phoenix, Az. Veterans Regional Office has earned a reputation as the worst such facility in the nation. But now, revelations from the Office of Special Counsel, make us wonder if the Oakland, Ca. VARO is the absolute bottom of the barrel.
An investigation has disclosed the incredible fact that Oakland has failed to process some 14,000 veterans' claims - some dating back to the 1990's. MilitaryCorruption.com has been told that the average "wait time" to get any claim processed there is an incredible six and one-half years!
This brings to mind the old saying about the real motto of the V.A.- "Delay and deny until they all die." Surely veterans died before their claims were processed at that regional office in California. What an outrage!
TRUMP KNOWS WHAT'S WRONG AT V.A.
President-elect Donald Trump had it right during the campaign when he repeatedly pointed to massive failures at V.A. and declared the bloated bureaucracy in the system be rooted out and the organization truly dedicated to serving the veteran, not just enriching a clique of fat-cats (mostly non-veterans) who have gotten rich on the backs of those who they are supposed to serve and protect.
The new Veterans Affairs Secretary - whether he be highly-qualified retired Navy Commander John B. Wells (executive director of Military-Veterans Advocacy Inc,) or two other aspirants - unemployed politician and ex-Sen. Scott Brown, or recently-retired Congressman Jeff Miller (a non-veteran) - has to have a ready-to-hit-the-ground running plan to reform and shake up V.A. beginning on day one.
[To familiarize yourself with Wells' comprehensive plan, click on www.militarycorruption.com/vacorrupt6.htm for the details. He knows where the waste and fraud exist and is determined to eliminate it at warp speed.
THANKS TO THE WHISTLEBLOWERS
We have three whistleblowers - a former claims specialist and two veterans services officers - for having the guts to come forward and report to OSC what a disaster Oakland VARO has become. It was their disclosures and documented evidence that got the faulty facility investigated in the first place.
As a result OSC was able to send to Congess proof that the Oakland "leadership" engaged in a conspiracy to intentionally hide files from investigators.
One of the probers told us a whistleblower's assertion that VA managers "consciously hid claims files from OSC in an effort to conceal egregious processing delays," was vital to preparing the prober's damning indictment of the unforgiveable crimes being committed against veterans at Oakland.
