Pentagon Blocks Information on U.S. troops Wounded in ISIS Battles

CNN reports that “the Pentagon will not routinely make public details about injured military personnel even as troops in Iraq and Syria are getting wounded on tours of duty that are not supposed to involve combat.”  

“‘The Department of Defense does not routinely release detailed information regarding service members who are wounded in action. This is due to concerns about operational security and about releasing health information that may be protected,’ Maj, Adrian Rankine-Galloway said in a statement emailed to reporters on Monday night.”  

“There have been exceptions. The Pentagon last month confirmed that two service members were wounded, one in Iraq and one in Syria. A pentagon official said that was done to correct inaccurate information.”
