Poor Care for Foreign Detainees
In a four-part series, the Post is examining failures in the federal government's medical treatment of foreign detainees, housed in compounds, private prisons and local jails across the country. Among the problems are missing and incomplete medical records, lack of access to physicians and hospitals and serious lapses in care that may have led to deaths, according to medical experts.
The "Careless Detention" series, by the Post's Amy Goldstein and Dana Priest, is the latest look at the treatment and care provided by the federal government.
Previously, the Post investigated the care of U.S. troops at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in the District (a series that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize) and of foreign prisoners at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison.
The New York Times also wrote earlier this month about the high number of foreign detainee deaths in recent years.
