US should investigate alleged abuses at Afghan hospital
The photos of Afghan patients at the US-funded Dawood National Military Hospital in Kabul are troubling. Injured Afghan soldiers, photographed by US military whistleblowers, are seen on beds at their country’s premier military hospital, suffering from gaping wounds, some with maggots crawling out of them. One patient’s arm has a pair of scissors sticking through it. Feet are swollen, yellow, and blackened as gangrene and necrosis have set in.
