Libyans Transported to Hospitals in U.S. and Germany

Now this is an example of 'Winning Hearts and Minds' and what this country once was, not blowing up people and their countries thus creating more hatreds towards us!!!
It's also something we used to do for many in conflicts around this planet. I met a few who came here from Bosnia, years back, for care and rehab before going back home, a couple of young women and an older man, when I was doing rehab for a hand injury!!

Oct 28, 2011 - The U.S. military is assisting the Libyan Transitional National Council (TNC) by transporting approximately 30 Libyans injured during recent fighting from Tripoli to hospitals in Europe and the United States.

According to a joint press release from U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, "Saturday, in response to a request by the Transitional National Council, the United States is transporting 24 seriously wounded fighters to Spaulding Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. An additional six critical cases will be transferred to Germany for immediate care. All of these patients were injured as a result of recent fighting and suffer from conditions that cannot currently be treated in Libya."

Two U.S. Air Force aircraft carrying medical teams will fly the injured to medical facilities in Germany and the United States. Specialized U.S. Air Force medical teams will care for the injured on the two flights. read more>>>
