As far as I know, it wasn't done by any American organization but we provided the money for it. I don't know if the American organizations knew the money would be going for this or not but they should have strings attached delineating how the money was to be used. I do know that Catholic Charity money has been used for circumcisions in the Phillipines before. I do know that it was individual hospitals that took the initiative to go out and do the circumcisions but I don't know if it was under the auspices of one of their medical associations or other organizations or not.
I just know that it was money that was donated to help these people recover from a natural disaster of epic proportions and they used it to mutilate the genitals of innocent boys. I would be just as outraged if I learned that I had given money either directly or indirectly through the US government to mutilate the genitals of girls.
