records have been declassified for public release. 16 years later
99.993% is classified , and the Pentagon has vowed to reclassify
these records. This include Confidential Records that should have
been released at the 15 year mark. They were not, and not at 20 years,
25 years, or 30 years. To protect private interest that profited from the war
and protect government officials from over 44,000 mistakes made there.
On February 14th 1999 I sent OSAGWI a FOIA asking for the bulk
of its records names be declassified, and sent to me. I received a
partial reply from General Vesser in a box with 2,877 pages, and
two CD's. On the CD was the Structured database file and other part
was a unstructured file. Again, only of the 42,943 files on the
public server. In the Nov 5th1999 response letter from OSAGWI to
me they explained they were processing the classified portion of the
log sheets for me. That was the last I ever heard from them on paper
concerning this FOIA. It remains mostly unanswered to this day
OSAGWI database file of 42,943 files
OSAGWI response to me concerning partial response to FOIA
on the other 6,000,00 files.
The Pentagon hides behind Executive Order 13292 so that the bulk
of what happened in the Gulf remains hidden from the public. Except
this is criminal intent to withhold information of neglect, misconduct,
mishandling, and much worse during the Gulf War. The very same
people who say nothing happened are the ones with full knowledge
of those records, and vow to conceal them at all cost. The same people
who lead us back to Iraq again under false terms, and created yet another
disaster to live down.

This is the redacted version, Congressional subcommittee can review the
total version when they request it. So faces are blocked out and certain
names blocked out. I still abide by the letter of the law even though technically
statue of limitation on this has passed. The person who released it is dead.
Most of these people are dead now.
There are disclaimers that this is NOT to official policy or position of OSAGWI
and yet it was circulated internally. What this is, this is a reflection of the
work attitude towards the Gulf war, and what they were asked to do. To mock
us and the war, to play it down, and insult as much as possible.
20 years later and its quite clear they meant this. No retraction, no apology,
and complete indifference to releasing the rest of there files. All 6 million.
Which I still stand by, if the war went well, why 30 years later have they
only released 47,000 files? It was a fiasco they had to cover up.
This document is a reflection of the American attitude towards the Gulf War,
and how its been trivialized. Devalued. Its veterans left to suffer in silence
while the wealthy profited from our deployment. In short, war crimes were
committed, and Congress is too cowardly to go after the people that took
advantage in all this. Global warm crimes that 30 years later are still being
suppressed at the expense of the veterans who fought this war. Just like with
Operation Iraqi Freedom, and 2 trillion in other frauds with the middle east
over 30 years.
There is so much more...............
