    Red Cross: Gitmo medical personnel violated ethics

    When an organization presumes to know all the information it needs to make sweeping statements like in this report based solely on the claims of terrorists , murderers and scum then I suggest that Organization is not only NOT impartial but is in fact playing political games.

    The supposed information that lead to this "classified" report comes from short interviews with men that had every reason to lie. It is not backed up with interviews with the supposed "unethical" medical personal at all. It is biased and political in nature.

    Perhaps that is why the Red Cross labeled it "confidential" and did not want it released.

    They can only honestly report what they were told.

    no we didnt expect them to stay forever....they gave very little assistance to people here and to be honest...they took the money and ran...we had to go to the state senator to get one guy help...dont even start with me on the red cross...i remember how ill prepared they were on 9/11...then tossed out blood when they couldnt store it...a unique situation but it did show how poorly prepared the red cross is...i do not know if that has been corrected or not...and dont they charge people for blood? they dont just give it away now do they?

    The Red Cross doesn't "take" money. Quit talking out of your ass. Whatever money people chose to donate is used to prepare for the next natural disaster or fire that displaces people or leaves them without shelter, clothes or food. Thier time is all volunteered. The next time you have a disaster tell your emergency management officials NOT to request Red Cross assistance. They don't go anywhere unless they are invited.
