Church & State: GOP vs Red Cross

Saturday, June 18, 2005

I should be writing, but every now and then you have to read about your world and I decided to bloghop over to Body and Soul and low and behold I found something else to get crunk about.

Senate Republicans are calling on the Bush administration to reassess U.S. financial support for the International Committee of the Red Cross, charging that the group is using American funds to lobby against U.S. interests.

The Senate Republican Policy Committee, which advances the views of the GOP Senate majority, said in a report that the international humanitarian organization had "lost its way" and veered from the impartiality on which its reputation was based. The Republican policy group titled its report: "Are American Interests Being Disserved by the International Committee of the Red Cross?"


Now I don't know what to make of this, since I am a proponent for the International Red Cross, especially what they are doing in Haiti and other places our government doesn't find value in. So if someone can enlighten me on why this makes sense I would appreciate it?

My 2cents:
I really liked that movie script. The dialogue meant something and the hiding guns pulled together nicely at the end. Christian Bale is stunning.
