Disaster Tourists

A remarkable account of how various disaster tourists, ranging from Dan Rather (in disgrace) to Save The Children, World Health Organization, the United Nations, and Indonesian military officers, stayed for free on the USS Lincoln (helping out in Indonesia) and were jetted around by the US Navy. One can single out these individuals for being immoral but I think that's unfair, the NGO/GO world of freedom without consequences would addle any brain and corrupt any soul. (Link via The Diplomad)

How true is this account? I don't know. The UN has a bad reputation for not paying parking tickets in NYC, does this extend to room and board on American aircraft carriers?
