Well, what do you know. Looks like Chris Wallace was not just completely hostile to Tammy Duckworth during her interview on Fox News Sunday where Wallace was carrying water for this shyster Jim Towey, he also distorted what's on the VHA's web site by cropping the documents during the interview.

In fact, contrary to Wallace's false assertions, the document he referred to does not require doctors to direct veterans to what conservatives have labeled the "Death Book for Veterans."
