Urge President Obama & Congress to clarify when the U.S. has used depleted
uranium weapons in Syria and what U.S. policy is.
The U.S. military ignored its own guidelines for the use of depleted uranium
ammunition in the 2003 Iraq War, firing the controversial weapons at unarmored targets, buildings in populated areas and troops.
The use of depleted uranium in munitions is controversial because of concerns about potential long-term health effects. A 2005 review concluded that human epidemiological evidence is consistent with increased risk of birth defects in the
children of people exposed to depleted uranium.
