Maybe it's just me but it seems that the article has only one purpose and that is to manipulate the emotions of its readers into thinking that it is outrageous and maybe even unprecedented that we would be providing medical treatment for a terrorist. The truth is that the government is always responsible for providing the necessary medical care of all inmates. This is true at the local, state and federal level. It doesn't just happen at "The transformative moment when he's transferred into custody of the federal government" as the article implies.
Don't get me wrong, I despise these wicked terrorist and all that they believe in. I just can't stand when the media attempts to make a story out of nothing by simply manipulating its readers.
