DHS Considers Medical Care as "Material Support"

This news from Human Rights First:
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security continues to take the position that the provision of medical care constitutes “material support” when provided to injured members of an armed group. A recent piece, researched by ABC news, profiled the cases of a Sudanese doctor who treated rebels in Darfur and a Nepalese medical worker who was kidnapped and forced to provide aid to Maoist rebels.

Punishing someone for providing humanitarian assistance is a violation of US laws and international law as well.
