A congressional probe is looking into abuses at the Dawood Military Hospital in Afghanistan, where it is said that patients were held in “Auschwitz-like” conditions. Whistleblowers within the Army revealed cases of starving patients with untreated wounds and horrific medical abuses. “Today, not just in 2010 or 2011, individuals … who perpetrated … unspeakable abuses upon Afghan soldiers, civilians, and family members walk the halls of the Daoud Khan hospital unrepentant, unscathed, enriched, and still unprosecuted,” one testifying officer said. Two investigations are studying the abuses and subsequent cover-up by Lt. Gen. William B. Cadwell, who ignored conditions and tried to block the probe.
