Dr.Disamodha Amarasinghe has been attempting to get the Virginian Pilot to run a story about DU--depleted uranium for months now. He has talked with editors and reporters about this topic.
The Virginian Pilot uses the AP wire service for much of its coverage. DU finally surfaces in the mainstream media via the AP. Yet, the Virginian Pilot did not run the story.
There is a news black out in Hampton Roads on this topic.
This topic is of crucial interest in the Hampton Roads area due to large numbers of servicemen stationed here who are directly effected by the DU issue.

DU is number 4 on The Top 25 Censored Media Stories of 2003-2004 on Project Censored's list. Check it out:

This is a story everyone needs to be aware of. Will American's stand for our service members to be exposed to such a deadly toxin...just so our shells can cut through armor like a hot knife through butter?
Don't let censorship leave you in the dark. Do your own research on depleted uranium.
