Panetta - Washington, DC - October 27, 2011
After months of struggle and sacrifice, the Libyan people have liberated their country with the
support of the United States and the international community. The violent dictator and his regime
have collapsed. But Libya’s new freedom has come at a price in human life and suffering. Just
as the United States and the international community stood with the Libyan people during the
revolution, we continue to work with Libya to address urgent humanitarian needs.
Saturday, in response to a request by the Transitional National Council, the United States is
transporting 24 seriously wounded fighters to Spaulding Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. An
additional six critical cases will be transferred to Germany for immediate care. All of these
patients were injured as a result of recent fighting and suffer from conditions that cannot
currently be treated in Libya.
The United States offers this humanitarian gesture of emergency medical evacuation assistance
as a token of our support for the democratic aspirations of the Libyan people and our hope for a
continued strong partnership as they build a new Libya.
