Scientology's Global Disaster Squad
BANGKOK, Thailand -- After Cyclone Nargis left a trail of corpses along Burma's coast in May 2008, foreign aid workers clamored to enter the military-controlled backwater.
Despite the world's pleading, Burma's paranoid generals forbade most foreign relief workers from entering the disaster zone. A frustrated U.K. threatened unauthorized air drops. The U.S. Navy was forced to float vessels loaded with life-saving supplies offshore.
