Ex-Marine Jerry Ensminger calls for 'uncensored truth' about Camp
Lejeune's contaminated water
By Martha Waggoner Associated Press/Fayetteville Observer March 14, 2012RALEIGH - The retired Marine who believes contaminated water at Camp Lejeune caused his young daughter to die of leukemia told a U.S. Senate committee Tuesday that both science and victims will suffer if the military wins its fight to delete information from reports about the water.
The federal agency investigating the contamination "estimates that as many as 1 million people were exposed to horrendous levels of carcinogenic chemicals through their drinking water at Camp Lejeune," retired Marine Master Sgt. Jerry Ensminger of Elizabethtown told the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. "These people need the uncensored truth concerning their exposures so they can be more vigilant about their and their family's health."
...His testimony was part of a hearing about the larger issue of the public's right to know and the protection of information about critical infrastucture. The committee's chair, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D- Vt., chose to discuss the subject during National Sunshine Week, which is dedicated to marking the importance of freedom of information laws.
