Skip to comments.Beyond The Pale! Al Qaeda Terrorists At Gitmo Treated Better Than Our Vets
Posted on 05/22/2014 5:29:15 PM PDT by Hojczyk
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 Americas 9 million veterans receiving VA health care and 267,930 VA employees, the ratio is 35 to 1.
But beyond the Gitmo numbers, the situation at the VA is also a bright, shining example of misguided priorities and terrible mismanagement.
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.
While some who see 2008 may reflexively say, blame Bush, not Obama the fact is that the VAs health system has been fatally flawed for years, regardless of who has been the president.
The VA is a classic example of big government gone wild. It is Americas second largest cabinet agency after the Defense Department. Since civil service promotions are traditionally based more on seniority than performance, and its near impossible to fire anyone, theres a punch-the-clock mentality thats pervasive. Not surprisingly, there's little to no sense of urgency. So to instill incentives, the VA shells out high salaries and bonuses, deserved or not.

The only thing the terrorists confined at GITMO should get is a Texas Necktie party.
per president mo m jeans - things have gotten ugly and i’m standing with the muslims.
LIBs are mentally disturbed. Their insane policies are taking us down the Alice-In-Wonderland rabbit hole. The only thing LIBs should be useful for is a laugh. Unfortunately, they have acquired some positions or authority and responsibility...much to the detriment of civil society.
What do you expect from a muslim leader like Barack Houssain bin Obummer?
Pass a law that if any prison or prison facility, anywhere that the USA runs one, gets any better medical care than veterans, that the veterans can demand (and get) the equivalent medical care. That ought to take care of it.
Even though they already lived under some of the best prison conditions ever seen.
Before Obama was elected, Congressman Duncan Hunter from California had already been down to Gitmo and had pics of the food treatment etc...
He is a Vietnam Vet, son of a decorated WWII marine and father of a marine who went about 4 times to Iraq and Afghanistan...
He had already proven that the islamic terrorists were eating better and had much better treatment than the American veterans..
So, it's not surprising that liberals give their best to evil men in gitmo and couldn't care less about our brave veterans.
They are blinded to truth and true justice. They need God. See my tagline.
The get better food too...
True, but this garbage has been going on for a long time. Criminals, whether they are in US prisons, or Gitmo, have been getting better medical care than veterans, for a very long time, especially in California. Prison food is better too. I was Air Force, so I was accustomed to decent food, but I ate at some Army chow halls in Germany, and I thought it was the worst food I ever tasted. Criminals would never tolerate food like that, or the treatment veterans get.
True on the fod I was Army. YUCK!!!! Field Chow.
If by field chow, you mean food out in the field, I never had that. What I had, was dining hall food on the Army base in Wiesbaden. It was so bad, I almost threw it up. We had very good food at Lindsey Air Station, in downtown Wiesbaden. I do not know why those Army troops put up with food that was THAT bad?
Sad....send this to Obama.
Anytime I was in Cam Ranh Bay, I always caught the bus over to the Air Force open mess. Way better chow than Army.
Well no surprise there. This is a POTUS who has done nothing but help Al-Qaeda since day one, literally. His very first day in office in Jan. 2009, the very first thing he did was rush to the phone and try to close down Gitmo and have the terrorists moved to civilian prisons. He also tried and is still trying to have Khalid Sheik Mohammed tried in a civilian court with full constitutional rights. Why all this effort for terrorists? So they have a better chance of being released. He also assisted Al-Qaeda in taking over Egypt, Libya which led to the deaths of 4 Americans, and incredibly wanted to move onto Syria next, but this is what happens when you have an enemy of the USA in the nations office. But you know what, I don’t blame him. He is what he is. What I blame are the absolute brain dead morons in Congress who refuse to do anything about it. Rome burns and they refuse time and time and time again to do something about the arsonist.
