11,000 veterans who had colonoscopies at U.S. Veterans Affairs hospitals may have been exposed to hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV. The veterans were advised equipment used during their treatment was not sterilized. Of those so far that responded by having follow-up blood checks, 8 have tested positive for HIV. Twelve of the veterans have tested positive for hepatitis B, and 37 have tested positive for hepatitis C.

Hey, I guarantee had I been handed a death sentence like any one of those 11,000++++++(who knows how many times this has been done) veterans, I
would not be shooting up the VA with my fellow soldiers. NOPE THATS WRONG.
I guarantee You that I'd be killing my local State Representatives, and my US Representatives; I'd find the all the executives of the VA, and take them out too.
Never would I put other soldiers in harms way

Of course I want to know.. Why in the hell were they using equipment that had not been steralized? I thought that was standard medical procedure these days..
