    U.S. Tsunami Aid Going to al Qaida-Linked Group

    Some of the massive U.S. aid package earmarked for Indonesian tsunami victims is going to a radical Muslim group with direct ties to al Qaida, including at least one terrorist leader who is accused of helping the 9/11 hijackers.

    The radical Muslim group Laskar Mujahidin has reportedly dispatched 200 of its members to the hard-hit provincial capital of Banda Aceh, where they were seen Thursday unloading truckloads of aid at the military airport there.

    But in the midst of the tsunami relief efforts, it's Laskar Mujahidin that has raised the most concern. The group's al Qaida ties have other aid groups working to help tsunami victims afraid of being seen with Americans.

    "Our teams are told that they should not fly in American army helicopters, since we're concerned that they could be a particular target," said Michel Brugiere, director of the French medical group Doctors of the World.

    I wouldnt personaly be to scared, i havent seen that on the news and that would definatly have been a hot topic. I went to the web page and by the way the adds are and the lack of any hard proof id be on the look out. Also the adds seem a little cheap. Just some things ive noticed after taking debate classes, it just doesent have enough back up to make me worried.
