Horror Hospital: Military leadership covered-up “Auschwitz-like” conditions to protect Democrats
BuzzFeed has published horrific images and testimonies stemming from an investigation into a U.S.-funded military hospital in Afghanistan that kept patients in “Auschwitz-like” conditions. According to BuzzFeed, a Congressional investigation blew the lid off the scandal, with shocking “sworn eye-witness testimonies” from three U.S. army colonels. The most damaging of these testimonies include the revelation that senior military leadership covered-up the scandal in order to protect Democrats in the 2010 elections:
Col. Carozza: “General Caldwell had the request withdrawn and postponed until after the election and then, after the election, tried to intimidate his subordinates into a consensus that it need not move forward at all.”
“How could we make this request with elections coming?” Caldwell reportedly said, referring to President Obama. “He calls me Bill.”
The fact that military leadership violated the law to benefit a political party is makes this is the most serious and damaging scandal to ever happen under President Barack Obama’s watch. Wounded American soldiers, Afghans civilians and children, suffered under these conditions and continued to suffer because of a sick, political calculation to benefit a political party.
