Whats going on at the VA


Attorney Benjamin Krause thinks the CIA is involved.

Krause is a disabled veteran, an award winning veterans’ rights attorney and journalist who investigates government fraud, and waste and abuse within the Department of Veterans Affairs. He helps disabled veterans access the benefits they deserve while ensuring the VA does not misallocate resources. He is considered an authority on veterans’ rights.

Attorney Benjamin Krause claims that there is more to what is happening within the VA when it comes to providing medical services for veterans than just incompetency.

Krause believes that the “VA insiders have fully adapted its strategies to corrupt the agency from within” by following a declassified 1944 CIA manual titled “Simple Sabotage Field Manual.”

Krause feels that the VA is using the strategies and believes “no amount of funding can fix an active sabotage scheme that goes unaddressed.”

He lists the five “timeless tips” from the CIA manual that he believes is what veterans may be experiencing when they deal with the VA. The “timeless tips” are as follows:

1. Managers and Supervisors: To lower morale and production, be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions. Discriminate against efficient workers; complain unjustly about their work.

2. Employees: Work slowly. Think of ways to increase the number of movements needed to do your job: use a light hammer instead of a heavy one; try to make a small wrench do instead of a big one.

3. Organizations and Conferences: When possible, refer tall matters to committees, for “further study and consideration.” Attempt to make the committees as large and bureaucratic as possible. Hold conferences when there is more critical work to be done.

4. Telephone: At office, hotel and local telephone switchboards, delay putting calls through, give out wrong numbers, cut people off “accidentally,” or forget to disconnect them so that the line cannot be used again.

5. Transportation: Make train travel as inconvenient as possible for enemy personnel. Issue two tickets for the same seat on a train in order to set up an “interesting” argument.

After speaking to a number of veterans myself about their frustrations with the VA, I think Krause may be on to something.
