I have suspected this for a long time about “Doctors Without Borders” simply because the warlords would not allow them to even operate in their areas if they were not the Taliban’s defacto source of primary medical care. If they treat any civilians at all it’s because they are allowed to by whatever warlord controls their hospital. They are The Taliban’s M*A*S*H unit. They are also a useful propaganda cover too.
Doctors without Borders confirm that their hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, did not display any internationally recognized markings showing it was a hospital when a U.S. gunship attacked the facility Oct. 3, killing 22 and injuring hundreds, according to the group’s interim report released Thursday.
The report may also open the group to accusations that it violated international law by forcibly removing civilian patients in favor of wounded Taliban soldiers.
Doctors without Borders, which is globally known as Medicins Sans Frontiers or MSF, is an international organization of medical personnel that provides health services in long-lost parts of the world, including in war zones. It has charged that the Oct. 3 U.S. air strike on their Kunduz trauma center constituted a war crime.
On Nov. 5 the group released its “initial MFS internal review” that divulged new details about their activities while operating in Taliban occupied territory and about circumstances surrounding the attack.
