Health Care For Terrorists: "Osama"Care's Death Panels

Apparently, the terrorists have long been into rationing health care.

This is too ironic to pass up.

From the New York Post via Best Of The Web Today, comes the startling news that accused terrorist Ahmed Ghailani appeared upset on the witness stand that al Qaeda "refused to pay the $500 cost of his wife's C-section."

According to Ghailani, when al Qaeda had to re-locate to the Sudan in the late 90's, they suffered a financial crisis and had to cut back on costs.

Maybe he didn't sign up for the Cadillac Plan.  Or maybe an independent al Qaeda medical advisory board had recommended that C-section was not cost-effective.

[Despite my making fun of this, the real tragedy would be if the wife didn't receive timely care.  I assume she did.]
