  •  How it happened (4+ / 0-)

    There were no anesthesics available. But it's because of a wholesale top level corrupt scam:

    vendors clearly identified as having no capability to import the required contractual drug were still awarded the contract. I took this personally to Minister Wardak to no avail as he told me he was convinced of BG Safir's honesty. However, this is how the counterfeit morphine was repeatedly procured leading to hundreds of soldiers who were forced to suffer through surgical procedures without analgesics
    After the September 2011 Wall Street Journal article exposing this, the Colonel in the first statement reported the problem in about as many ways as possible. But nothing was done to fix it.

    The level of repeated doing nothing about this problem is difficult even to comprehend.
