Wonder if he brought along all the injured, burned and mutilated of his own people, so they could get medical attention, as well. Even as an American humanitarian gesture, this man hurts his own people--why are we offering him assistance? It was Yemeni men who blew up The Cole and killed , I think , 16 American sailors. Smarter people than i will have to sort this out, but there's always one more evil-doer wanting something from the U.S.

One is reminded that throughout the so-called "Cold War", two private U.S. jets had standing permission to land at the Moscow Airport.

One belonged to David Rockefeller and the other carried a top U.S. doctor.

So why don't the CIA carry, in one of their Red Cells that report directly to Rockefeller, a top flight medical team that they can fly to various points in the World where the CIA have propped up these brutal "oil" dictators for long periods of time and offer treatment of their ills accordingly.

OMG, who would ever put the words "CIA", "oil" and the name "Rockefeller" in the same sentence!

At least, if we flew medical teams to foreign countries via CIA jets, no one would be the wiser and The Corporate Controlled Media would not have to tell lies as to why this guy was let into the country.

He flew through London -- don't they have any "burn" doctors over there! The "Brits" would be on the phone to their MP's and talking very unkindly to them should he have stopped there for treatment.

You mean to tell me that they dont have "Saleh-Care" in Yemen and their doctors cant fix it? The article states that he came here for 1st class medical care. Imagine that! First class medical attention WITHOUT Obama-care. Great concept! He has already been to Saudi Arabia, only to return to Yeman and start trouble again. My guess is that Obama will grant him permanant residency (not citizenship) as Saleh is one of his "buddies".

You are not looking at the truth here. The man is a dignitary, loaded to the hilt with big bucks, and can afford the best, and yes in the USA we do have some of the best, but ... and that is a big BUT, the average working class American does NOT have the same access to care, and the average American Insurance company that can afford to give this care to a working poor, will not do so.

Case in point: Current friend that has Cancer has been religiously to the USA doctors for years, and four, count them, FOUR, primary care and specialist all, ALL, missed this, even though they gave my friend MRIs, CT, CBCs, UAs, and dozens of other 'test' and have examined my friend for year. It took me examining her symptoms to tell the doctors to look for this Omentum and Ovarian Cancer, and my friend DEMANDING they do so, be for they and the insurance company would authorized the testing that proved me correct.

This sucks....

I agree with you whole heartedly! But why America, knowing that there are "tensions" here with those that promote terrorist-Muslim aggression? Look the world over, there are fine medical facilities and techniques everywhere. I personally think there is a deeper agenda here. Only time will tell if my suspensions become obvious.

Many say we're supporting a dictator, but Feiersten, the U.S. Ambassador to Yemen said several years ago that America is committed to supporting the Yemeni Government and its people to overcome al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, to secure Yemeni borders, and to continue to train Yemeni anti-terrorist forces. Ambassador Feiersten also promised military and other types of "equipment" to get rid of the immediate threats posed by al Qaeda there.

At that moment, President Saleh’s ensured that his government would take all necessary measures against terrorists and extremists and he welcomed this backing by the U.S. and he promised to support all measures mentioned by President Obama. A $1.2 billion assistance bundle was being considered by Washington at that time. Don't forget that U.S. drones recently killed al Qaeda lieutenant Anwar al Alwalaki in Yemen. It's always a real dilemma we get ourselves into- fighting terrorism and preventing al Qaeda from taking over in the Arabian peninsula...or supporting a dictator.

People will say anything for their cut of $1.2 billion. Let them fight their own wars...if they loose, they get no bail-out.

Life means so much for him that he needs to make his disfigured body whole once more. ...and who would not, given the circumstances of his residual wealth. The poor will always be amongst us with their afflictions...but the wealthy shall obtain a cure for their illness.

Why should dkhead be allowed here when they all hate us so much? Why does he get to spend the taxpayer funds sent to him by us to get better treatment than the American people are allowed? Our own government through obamacare is going to limit our care and leave it up to the 15 person panel to dictate what procedures we can have or not have!

You are so off base it is ridiculous. You really need to grow up and learn about people and the exterior things that effect or affect one's live and livelihoods.

This is nuts. To give a murderous dictator a visa to enter the United States is outrageous. Granted, we have the best doctors and the best health care of any country on earth, but that will only keep him in charge of his violent regime for many years. We must not grant visas to these kind of men.
