Subject: RE: BS: Irony of Tsunami Relief
One of the problems in donating to the tsunami victims is being assured that the money is getting there and not going to ancillary stuff like promotion and paying staff.

I can vouch for the integrity of the American Friends Service Committee and Oxfam. The money will not be spent on anything except the people for whom it's intended.

Diego Garcia military base
apparently know about the earthquake an hour before it happened. They did not report it to the affected countries.
