Please do, Capt! Medical mission is always a priority in the incarceration of detainees/POW's. The health, safety and wellness of those in our care is a top concern of the medical chain of command, all the way to the Pentagon, and a top concern of commanders. When we plan warfighting, each area, each branch plans off of their worst case scenario and then plans contingencies. They come up with courses of action based on the mission and commander's intent. The commander chooses a course of action and then the department heads plan the details of their mission within the larger objective. The worst case scenario for any medical mission is losing a patient/casualty. Detainee health and wellness is always maintained ABOVE minimum requirements. DAILY medical INTEL is gathered so that the command is aware of the slightest change in detainee health. If we could do that to a level EXCEEDING that for our own US personnel, with over 200 battlefield evacuated detainees, we can certainly do it with 40, and then some. The medical mission at Gitmo is so robust, that they are actually prepared, at a moment's notice, to care for many more detainees than they currently have on hand. And, just like in 2002, they are prepared for any potential need. If they don't have it and they need it, it is provided. That is the REAL story.
