Health concerns at Gitmo- UPDATED

Last year I wrote about the cancer cluster at Gitmo. After a military defense attorney died from a very aggressive form of cancer concerns were raised about the site where the attorneys and staff stay while at the base as well as their working space. It seems that the attorney was not the only one to be diagnosed with cancer. The staff demanded an investigation and it was learned that hazard waste had been dumped at the site.... of course the military is never wrong and they declined to move anyone and said "everthing is fine...."
Yesterday the marine general for the defense team banned them from living at "camp justice" until further notice, citing health concerns. I will have a link to my earlier post and to an article from yesterday that raises the continued concerns later today.
Stay tuned....
