.....the Defense Department is widely regarded as one of the nation's leading polluters, producing vast amounts of chemicals from ordnance that leach into groundwater, as well as air pollution from military vehicles. The EPA lists more than 130 Superfund sites on military bases.
"Congress would never consider letting the nation's biggest corporate polluter off the hook. Why, then, would Congress grant immunity to America's, and the world's, largest polluter?"
--Heather Taylor, deputy legislative director for the Natural Resources Defense Council
