Depleted uranium, about which a rumble has been going on for over a decade, may turn out to be another weapon used in the legal case being put together against the Bush adminstration. The United Nations Environment Program met yesterday in Jordan to discuss measuring the effects of DU. A British psychiatry journal suggests that it is responsible for some mental illnesses associated with PTSD.
The BBC reports that the Bush administration is not supportive of measuring the extent of the use of DU in Iraq. Surprise.
