Dawood Military Hospital, Kabul, Afghanistan – funded by us, run very corruptly by the Afghans [they steal everything] – and covered up by LTG William Caldwell – who didn’t want any bad news to rock the 2010 midterms.
Dumb f’king move General. Now you’ll likely pay with your stars, your reputation, and a hefty chunk of your retirement. You don’t think Obama is going to cover your ass, do you? Worse, because this involves corruption and cover-up in Afghanistan, the left-wing media is apt to give it a lot of press.
The basic story is that our money and supplies were pouring through this hospital at a very high rate, and Caldwell was pressuring junior officers sent to investigate – to play down the problem – because it was election time back home.
Now two Colonels who were there (Dr.) Schuyler Geller – USAF, and Gerald Carozza – US Army, are blowing the whistle. They will testify to Congress that Caldwell put the lid on the investigation – into conditions so bad that Afghan Army solders were dying of starvation, and easily treatable infections, – in the hospital.
General, I’d hate to prejudge you, but,…if there is even a shred of truth to this story, and you covered up Afghans starving to death…please do us all a favor and rip that Ranger Tab off your uniforms – tonight!
I’m just sorry that Geller and Carozza had to retire before they felt safe in bring their charges.
Enjoy your well-earned spotlight General!

Old Soldier, – Still Good for Parts!
Personal note Folks; – it took a full 20 years for the US Army to recover our reputation and the trust of our civilian population after the cover-up of the Mai Lai Massacre. A full generation of American soldiers lived under that cloud. You think I’m angry?
