    Abid said that 15 health workers have been killed in the anti-polio campaign in Pakistan since July 2012. Pakistani militant groups oppose the vaccinations and accuse the workers of spying for Washington.

    In the months before Osama bin Laden was killed, the Central Intelligence Agency ran a phony vaccination program in Abbottabad, Pakistan, as a ruse to obtain DNA evidence from members of Bin Laden’s family thought to be holed up in an expansive compound there, according to an American official.

    Hey, what's a few crippled Af-Pak kids?

    Goddamn disgusting.

    In ten years the red cross will be over there trying to "help" with the polio cases.

    America will do the right thing after they have exhausted every other idea.

    No.

    What's your avatar. I can't click on it to see it larger in your profile, and I can't quite make it out. All I see is the word "Whipped" across the top.

    Instead of killing terrorists we should infect them with polio and mad cow. That would be good for some lulz

    so which we do pick to save, the polio kids in a country we are at war with, or the kidnap children in a country that has no strategic value?

    Nothing official, but we're known to sneak in the back door periodically

    Coincidentally, spent yesterday evening back down at Penrose, visiting a co-worker. Matt served in the Army, did a tour during the gulf war, and multiple tours since as a reservist. He was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma on Saturday, a rare and aggressive cancer. He's now on a list for a liver transplant, which, if that happens, will hopefully occur at UCH here in the next couple week. This makes 3 people I know who served during the first Gulf War who've developed some kind of bizarre cancer.
