- Humanitarian aid
- Disaster relief

In other words, American tax dollars are probably going to terrorists as I'm writing this.
If true, this is dumb, really dumb.
For example, "Palestinian police found several Iranian agents and an Iranian general teaching the students in the U.S.-funded chemistry lab how to make suicide bombs." The punch line is that the Iranian agents and general were using the basement of Gaza Islamic University, one of the institutions that my taxes have been supporting.
Again: dumb, really, really dumb.
I hope that USAID gets its act together.
Now, a minor item: I scrambled my schedule today, and don't have the post I was preparing ready. Eventually, I'll get that done.
Happily, my foul-ups don't have very serious consequences. Except, occasionally, to me and my family.
