Pat Robertson, FEMAs choice of charities

While FEMA is slow to reach those in New Orleans, they were quick to promote Operation Blessing, Pat Robertson’s controversial faith-based “charity”, linking their website second only to the Red Cross. MmmHmm…raise your hand if you remember when the Operation Blessing planes were used to transport workers and machinery to Robertson’s African diamond mines? Oooh, or how bout the time the Operation Blessing planes were used to transport supplies to the Contras in Nicaragua?

Oh, hey, remember that time they actually did some charity work? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Thoughts on the whole mess from Josh Marshall, including the fact all of the listed organizations are religious.
