I agree whole heartedly. I for one am glad these
countries are starting to see the breach.
We (the U.S.) would not tolerate it.
If we knew the international Red Cross, operating now
in cities like New Orleans and Los Angeles, (because we do
NOT take care of our own unless it's politically or financially
relevant) showed they have been covertly working on agendas
for their own shadow groups, it could lead to sanctions,
invasions and drone strikes.

Dude, did you even read my full post?
Yes I did. Did you read mine?
I repeat that governments banning NGOs is more a symptom of their activities highlighting corruption and policy inadequacies rather than e.g. infiltration by the CIA. The latter just helps them justify their actions.

Ah, well, it'll just end up with the agency using contractors as fronts.
They do that already, of course. But they'll do it more.
It would seem if you knew the NGOs were agency pipelines, you'd use that to feed them the info you wanted them to have. Much more dangerous to cut that off and let them use other methods you might not be able to control quite so well.
