Non-governmental organizations work for humanity...

... or so they say. Many of us who have had to deal with NGOs at any time would have noted that they were all too often linked to various left-wing organizations or government, some of them none too savoury. Most recent evidence comes from Colombia.

The most extraordinary aspect about the daring and imaginative resuce operation mounted by President Alvaro Uriba and the Colombian army was the ease with which the FARC rebels were tricked into accepting that the helicopters with the Che t-shirt wearing young men on it had been sent by some "humanitarian" organization.

As Mary Anastasia O'Grady says in today's Wall Street Journal, is this not evidence that a number of these organizations have close links with FARC and othe suchlike groups?
