Charities accused of ties to terrorism

During the "war on terror" the names of charities accused of ties to terrorism have been published. Some detainees have been captured largely because they volunteered or worked for these charities.

On August 23 2007 the Bush Presidency announced plans to implement enhanced security checking of the employees of American charities, which receive funds from U.S. Agency for International Development, looking for those who might have ties to terrorism. Charities which are turned down will not be offered an explanation, or an avenue to appeal the decisions.
