"Much of the discussion was being driven by theology, ideology, (and) preconceived beliefs that were scientifically incorrect," said Carmona, one of three former surgeons general who testified at Tuesday's hearing. "I thought, this is a perfect example of the surgeon general being able to step forward, educate the American public ... I was blocked at every turn. I was told the decision had already been made — 'stand down, don't talk about it.' That information was removed from my speeches."
