CNN's Griffin: VA 'Can't Fix Itself,' 'Fire Every Senior Manager'


CNN chief investigative correspondent Drew Griffin, who first reported on the massive wait times at the Veterans Affairs hospitals stated that he believes the VA “can’t fix itself” and should “fire very senior manager.” 

Griffin summarized the conclusion of a report issued by the Office of the Special Counsel as, “We do not believe the VA. We do not believe the VA is investigating. We do not believe that they can get to the bottom of these issues.” 

He also reported that the Special Counsel found “ten different cases across the country, specific examples where they believe a whistleblower came forward, veterans were harmed, nothing happened.”  Griffin concluded “there is an entire bureaucracy that has been allowing this to happen for years and years and years, and I don’t know how you get one administrator at the top who is going to somehow change the culture without throwing out all these people.”
