The U.S. Halts Haiti Victim Evacuation Due To Medical Costs


The United Stated military has halted the evacuation of Haitian earthquake victims to the US in a reported dispute over medical costs It was reported that a doctor in the quake zone warned that 100 of his patients would die in the next 48 hours unless they were airlifted.  As it is, only women are currently allowed to collect food from new UN distribution sites in Haiti's capital.  The U.S. is denying that ceasing evacuations was a financial decision, instead stating that it was about "logistics."  If you break that down, it's the same thing.

On Sunday, January 31st, the U.S. Military announced that they would be resuming evacuation of injured Haitian into the United States.
