They covered it all up

In Haaretz (via IRIS Blog), a doctor admits that there were coverups being performed regarding Ariel Sharon's health:
The controversy surrounding Sharon's medical treatment and the transparency of his physicians continued unabated Wednesday.

Additional criticism was heard of Sharon's physicians for concealing the diagnosis of CAA after the prime minister's first stroke, despite their declaration of "full disclosure of [Sharon's] condition in the wake of his hospitalization."

Chico Menashe of Israel's Channel 10 reported Wednesday that a doctor involved in Sharon's treatment said the information was concealed "for political reasons," out of fear that if made public, it would be used for propaganda purposes against Sharon and his Kadima party, particularly in light of the fact that CAA has often been associated in medical literature with Alzheimer's Disease.
So now the cat's out of the bag. They hushed up on the exact details surrounding the state of a man whose image is now being exploited by his own party, which only served to make things worse. It's a violation of the public's right to know, and a grave disservice to Sharon as well.

See earlier post for more on the topic.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
