    Is this still an ongoing problem?

    Some things have been happening over in forensic accounting/law land. A lot of state DA's have lost their shit with several fraudulent "help the veterans funds", and have begun prosecuting them for fraud.

    So if this is still going on, then there is a chance that it will get exposed for the quackery it is, and things will get interesting.

    Ah, Daily Beast. You tried so hard and still couldn't even get someone's name right.
    At least they caught that, unlike the guy running it:
    The last line is the thing Scientology will most want hidden.

    In my opinion, Kathleen Kerr has blood on her hands the same as Cruise, KrusTY, and TraMolta.

    When Dr. Pierre Labonte was banned from associating with NN TR, Kathleen and her bud, Paul,
    acted on Labonte's behalf. I submitted a big stack of documemnts to the Ontario College of Physicians:

    End Dangerous Scientology Experiments on Gulf War Vets, Says Center for Inquiry

    August 14, 2015

    The Center for Inquiry today challenged the Department of Defense’s funding of dangerous pseudoscientific experiments on veterans suffering from Gulf War Syndrome. These experiments involve the Church of Scientology’s “Purif” detoxifications, a sham treatment based on religious tenets, not science. These experiments not only put desperate veterans’ health at risk, but also blatantly violate the separation of church and state. CFI, which advocates for science, reason, and humanist values, will urge the Department to immediately end these experiments and investigate how they were ever approved.

    Journalist Brandy Zadrozny revealed on August 12 in The Daily Beast that the Department of Defense has paid $633,677 since 2009 to fund the experimental study of a so-called “Purification Rundown,” or “Purif,” a religiously based “detoxification” regimen invented by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard — a man with no scientific or medical training whatsoever — as a potential treatment for Gulf War Syndrome (GWS). Involving such risky methods as overexposure to saunas and massive doses of vitamins, Purif programs have in the past also been used by the Church as a recruitment tool, with promises to “remove biochemical factors inhibiting your spiritual freedom.”

    The Center for Inquiry expressed its grave concerns about the safety of veterans used in these experiments, and pointed out that government-funded Purif programs violate the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, being grounded in the religious beliefs of the Church of Scientology. As detailed in the Daily Beast report, CFI is also shocked at how thoroughly riddled the study is with financial and promotional conflicts of interest favoring the Church of Scientology, as well as the obvious vested interest in its outcomes by the study’s own Scientology-advocating co-investigator—a conflict unknown to the study’s own lead investigator until revealed by the Daily Beast journalist.

    “Veterans suffering from Gulf War Syndrome have been struggling for decades now to find effective treatments,” said Ed Beck, CFI policy analyst and Marine Corps veteran. “Spending public money to use these veterans as guinea pigs to test a pseudoscientific Scientology ritual, in a dangerous, poor-quality study structurally biased in favor of the Church of Scientology itself, does nothing to address their plight. These desperate veterans deserve far better from their government, and that begins with putting an immediate end to this study and investigating how it ever came about in the first place.”

    Beck added, ”As it stands, this publicly funded misadventure advances the sectarian interests of the Church of Scientology, not the health and wellbeing of sick veterans.”

    CFI’s concerns will be formally presented to the Defense Department and other relevant agencies in a forthcoming communication.

    I hope the department of defense really abandons the cult's recruitment program and death-inducing "treatments".
