WASHINGTON (AP) — A review ordered by President Obama of the Veterans Affairs health care system verifies some of the problems pointed out by whistleblowers and internal and congressional investigators.

A summary of the review by White House chief of staff Rob Nabors cites a "corrosive culture" that has hurt morale and affected the timeliness of health care.

The V.A. has been under fire recently, over reported long wait times for veterans -- and even some alleged manipulation of records by department officials.
