FEMA cozies up with Pat Robertson

Via Boing Boing: FEMA is including Pat Robertson’s charity group Operation Blessing on its list of charities accepting donations for victims of Katrina.

Robertson, the TV evangelist who recently called for the assassination of the President of Venezuela, also runs a controversial diamond mining company in Zaire.

In 1997 “two pilots came forward with the story … that Operation Blessing’s tax-exempt cargo planes were used almost exclusively for Roberton’s diamond-mining operation, not for humanitarian purposes.” (Read MS magazine article from 2003)
