I did not participate in any mistakes. I applied my scientific knowledge to
a problem, and assisted in reporting our findings in the manner that I
always have.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Apologies regarding DU

I am sorry that my government has not yet been able to hire staff
responsible for evaluating the safety of depleted uranium weapons
capable of measuring gas condensates of the combustion products.

I am sorry that my government has not been able to offer victims
of uranium inhalation poisoning appropriate medical care for the
toxicological details of their exposure.

I am sorry that my government and its staff has produced so much
propaganda suppressing the fact that depleted uranium burns to
produce poison gas.

I am sorry that my government has hired people who think the use of
a powerful weapon which has been known likely to lead to congenital
malformations in the civilian families of the exposed is in any way
representative of courage, personal, or professional responsibility.

I am sorry that my government has hired people who address only
their personal emotional reaction to the issues I raise, including
vague threats of legal action, instead of the questions involved.

I am not sorry that there are still people like Dr. Johnson, who
though they may have participated in a serious mistake, are still
willing to take the personal and professional responsibility to
support scientific measurements to resolve and help correct the
problem, instead of complaining about my opinion of their honor.
