Faced with an alarming variety of symptoms and possible pathologies, the Department of Veterans Affairs and others have, since 1991, undertaken an impressive number of studies to explore the illnesses suffered by Gulf war vet- erans. But, so far, studies lead only to more studies- and clinical data yields more hypotheses than conclusions. These oversight hearings will examine how ongoing efforts to diagnose, treat and compensate Gulf war veterans can be more sharply focused and more imbued with the same sense of urgency with which we committed our troops to that war. Without that focus, without that urgency, we risk literally studying the problem to death.
