WASHINGTON, June 27 A White House review of the
scandal-plagued Veterans Administration has found that a
"corrosive culture" has led to personnel problems and that the
agency has faced chronic failures.
The review, conducted by a senior adviser to President
Barack Obama, was aimed at identifying problems and recommending
actions that can be taken to improve the Veterans Administration
after widespread evidence that military veterans have
experienced lengthy delays in getting healthcare.
The White House released results of the review by the
official, Rob Nabors, who concluded that while the VA provides
quality healthcare, "I also believe that it is clear that there
are significant and chronic systemic failures that must be
addressed by the leadership at VA."
