Obama to decide fate of head of US veterans agency

US Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Eric Shinseki, seen at the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, DC, on February 5, 2013The head of the US agency that provides health care to military veterans was due at the White House on Friday to learn if a scandal over delayed treatment will cost him his job. President Barack Obama is under pressure to fire Eric Shinseki after Veterans Administration staff falsified waiting lists, holding up care for hundreds of former service members. Before his meeting, addressing a conference on care for homeless veterans, Shinseki took responsibility for the situation and said he had begun moves to clean house at his agency. “I can’t explain the lack of integrity amongst some of the leaders of our health care facilities,” he said.
