"We have more work to do and we will use this data to continue to strengthen our suicide prevention efforts," Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki said in a statement.
Sounds like politics to me.

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS,create a new study, delay the claims and blame it on the data to continue to strengthen our suicide prevention efforts...?
What are they putting in these drug to treat the veteran?
How long has this been going on that they need a new study?
Were beyond a new study, ACTION is needed to treat these veterans!
What does it take to open your eyes Secretary Shinseki? AN ACT OF CONGRESS?

If I had to work for this "commander in chief", I'd commit suicide too. Ain't no way any sane person could work for this Marxist POS. Hell, he won't even honor his oath to up-hold the constitution of the USA.
