NGOs a new target?

Naomi Klein in the Guardian: Now Bush wants to buy the complicity of aid workers. [via d2r]

“The war on NGOs is being fought on two clear fronts. One buys the silence and complicity of mainstream humanitarian and religious groups by offering lucrative reconstruction contracts. The other marginalises and criminalises more independent-minded NGOs by claiming that their work is a threat to democracy.”

Weird indeed!
