In tonight’s episode, the new unit commander is insisting that the medic ignore triage, and treat “his people” first (sound familiar?). But wait! Now there is an Iraqi civilian who has taken a hostage, and refuses to release him, until his son is treated. The lieutenant issues a counter-threat to both him and his family. The interpreter refuses to relay this (I agree – remember Nuremberg).

All quite interesting.

Update: I’m going to wait for the word from some active duty people, but it seems to me as though MANY things went REALLY wrong here. But, as we know from Katrina, shit happens.

Still, a very powerful episode.
