Leaders of a Veterans Affairs project to clear a backlog of hundreds of thousands of health care applications deliberately suppressed critical information from VA hospitals that would have allowed them to help veterans gain access to care, according to interviews, internal records and recordings of private meetings obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
