Medical Treatment

We next met with the medical and behavioral health personnel. There is no question in my mind that the medical treatment of detainees at GTMO is looked after carefully. There is a surgeon on staff, as well as nurses and physicians. Everything from constipation to diabetes is treated. There is a fully stocked and functioning pharmacy inside the wire. For those detainee’s that are over 50 years old, most are in their 30s and 40s, even colonoscopies were offered. Fourteen detainees approved of the procedure we are told.
