Ever since 9/11, the United States has bent over backward to do everything possible for Muslims. Even Al Qaeda terrorists. Meanwhile it’s the same old story when it comes to vets. Our enemies get the best we have. Our heroes make do without.
Here’s another secret the White House doesn’t want you to know about the VA. Al Qaeda detainees get better medical treatment than our veterans.
I know because I served as a Pentagon spokesman from 2005-2009 and visited Guantanamo Bay Naval Base over 30 times during those years.
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.
And there’s no waiting time apparently. No secret waiting lists. No Al Qaeda terrorists waiting for months to be seen.
There have been plenty of stories about the high end treatment of Gitmo terrorists. The United States has bent over so far backward to prove that Al Qaeda detainees weren’t abused, that they are living better than the men who fought them.
Much like so many prisoners live better than their victims. It’s another sign of how the left has screwed up this country’s values.
