Greens Accused of Helping Africans Starve

U.S. AID Administrator Andrew Natsios has accused environmentalists "of endangering the lives of millions of famine-threatened Africans by encouraging their governments to reject genetically modified U.S. food aid." Natsios said environmentalists "are using big-time, very well-organized propaganda the likes of which I have never seen before," and called it "revolting and despicable to see them do so when the lives of Africans are at stake." For a more balanced discussion of the issue, the GE Food Alert Campaign Center has posted a CNN interview that featured Natsios alongside representatives of Zambia, the World Bank and Friends of the Earth.
