The Dawood Military Hospital Scandal

A Congressional investigation revealed horrific new details this week about a U.S. funded military hospital in Afghanistan that kept patients in "Auschwitz-like" conditions.

The investigation also revealed that Lt. General William B. Caldwell, then commander of the $11.2 billion dollar a year Afghan training program, tried to block the probe and ordered a cover-up.

There are currently two ongoing investigations looking into the Dawood Military Hospital abuses.

The photos and corresponding descriptions were collected by U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan.

Remember as you look at the pictures that it's our tax dollars that are paying for this.

Warning: The images are extremely graphic.

Thank you to Buzzfeed Politics for their fine reporting on this disturbing subject.
