Help Stop Peake at VA

Der Monkey Fuehrer has nominated a guy named Dr. James Peake to head the VA. On paper the guy looks pretty good: Former Army Surgeon General. First physician to be nominated to head the VA, and first general to be nominated. What's not to like?

Turns out, quite a bit.

There are a lot of questions surrounding Peake's tenure as chief Army medical man, including possible knowledge about the torture of enemy prisoners of war unlawful enemy combatants and his presiding over the criminally negligent treatment of our wounded, injured, and sick Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

Until these questions are resolved, I don't want to see Peake as head of the VA. Please consider contacting the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs and asking them not to vote for confirmation of Peake until these serious questions have been answered.

Check out Veterans for Common Sense for a ton of material on Peake and his prior actions.
