Drew Griffin answers your questions on the VA scandal

A controversial new report on the VA facilities in Phoenix looked at more than 3,000 cases and found that dozens of veterans faced 'clinically significant' delays in care. The report also said investigators could not conclusively link their deaths to those delays.

How could this be?

Anderson Cooper & Drew Griffin respond to questions from viewers submitted on Facebook and Twitter.

    Since most of the Army and Marine veterans are black, shouldn't the VA at least have to treat us as 3/5th of a person?

    The VA mocks us as "Oscar the Grouch."

    They should have chosen Kenny from South Park, considering how many of us they've murdered.

    See what happens when nobody gets arrested?

    If after they kill us, they're going to dishonor our memory by mocking our widows and orphans with stupid cartoon characters, they should at least choose one that fits.

    Maybe Oscar the Grouch will protect you all from the ISIS Jihadist massacre headed your way.
    There's no way I'm re-enlisting now.

    Drew and Anderson, a lot of disabled veterans I talk to at the VA, as well as myself, are very concerned that this story is no longer screaming in the headlines.

    Nobody appreciates more than us that you're willing to tell the world that the VA's LIES are "A BUNCH OF BS!"

    You ARE THE ONLY ONES DOING THIS, so please don't do it quietly.


    Please continue to help us, and thank you so much for doing it.

    The VA constantly murders veterans.
    The VA constantly lies.
    The VA constantly plays everyone for fools.
    The VA constantly covers it all up.

    This is exactly what happens when nobody gets arrested for murdering us. They figure they can do anything they want, and lie to the entire world–knowing full well we all know better, and then mock us while we die by reducing us to "Oscar the Grouch."

    I've decided that since the VA is now depicting disabled veterans as Oscar the grouch, I've decided that instead of getting angry and doing what an insult like that probably deserves, I'm going to take another route and make my point by replacing "Oscar the Grouch" with Kenny from South Park.

    Its also my new avatar.

    It seems a lot more fitting, considering they're constantly murdering us and nobody ever goes to jail for it. Who knows, though. Maybe Kenny represents the author who insulted us. There's a certain sardonic logic to that.

    By all means, please feel free to copy and distribute my avatar any way you like.
