Veterans National Recovery Center will offer Live Press advisory with Iraq War Gang Rape Victim who has been Denied VA Health Care
The Veterans National Recovery Center will hold a press conference on Friday, May 4th, 2018 at 10 AM in the Legislative Dining Room at the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines. The tragic case of Christina Thundathil, an Iraq war veteran and the circumstances surrounding the denial of healthcare by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Thundathil will be available by video conference, and, after a short presentation, will take questions and answers from the media.
Narrative: WAS THERE A COVER-UP OF THE BRUTAL RAPE OF ARMY PRIVATE CHRISTINA D. THUNDATHIL DURING THE IRAQ WAR? If so, what was the motive? Who in the command made the key coverup decisions? Why is the coverup of the rape preventing the US Department of Veterans Affairs from helping save Christina’s life after she became ill from working in an Iraq Burn Pit?
How is Iowa involved in this? This is not the first time Iowans have been made aware of the plight of Christina Thundathil.Her case was presented to Iowa during the US Senate Braley-Ernst contest in 2014 and was generally dismissed by the media. However, after careful review, we feel that Christina Thundathil’s case is solid, and casts a shadow on military justice actions taken. An outline of touchpoints will be presented.
