Outrageous: Al Qaeda terrorists at Gitmo receive better treatment than U.S. military veterans

terrorist1The men and women in America’s military deserve the very best medical treatment the country can offer.  That’s not happening, however.  Instead, the Veterans Administration has delayed treatment for a number of veterans, causing some to die needlessly, justl to make administrators look good on paper.

Meanwhile, al Qaeda detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, receive better treatment than our veterans, according to a report at Fox News:

Despite the fact that Al Qaeda terrorists carried out the Sept. 11 terror attacks, killing 3,000 people in America, the admitted co-conspirators and their roughly 150 fellow jihadists at Gitmo have approximately 100 doctors, nurses and health care personnel assigned to them.

Doctors and medical personnel are at their beck and call. Got a cold, a fever, a toothache, a tumor, chest or back pain, mental health issues, PTSD? No problem, come right on in. Military doctors are waiting to see you.

The VA and Gitmo eligible patient-to-health care provider ratios speak volumes.

While the Gitmo ratio is 1.5 to 1, for America’s 9 million veterans receiving VA health care and 267,930 VA employees, the ratio is 35 to 1.

But wait, there’s more:

In late 2008, when Obama was president-elect, he and his staff were warned not to trust the wait times reported by VA health care facilities. But instead of fixing the problem, their focus was closing Guantanamo and improving the comfort of detainees. Even though they already lived under some of the best prison conditions ever seen.

This is an absolute travesty and heads need to roll.
