#7 while I admire the work that these humanitarian groups do - their general security procedures are apallingly bad. It's hard to see how they will get a lot of new volunteers - when staff are being kidnapped and beheaded. Someone needs to re-think their whole set of security arrangements ... the world is gettign to be a "tough game" out there.
