Red Cross Workers Help Soldiers?

From today's New York Times, front page picture...caption:

Red Cross workers helped wounded Hezbollah fighters on a makeshift bridge at the Litani River in Lebanon on Wednesday.

Read the whole article here.

Now, read that caption again. Who's helping whom? Oh yes, it's the RED CROSS helping HEZBOLLAH. International relief agency assisting terrorist organization. Hmmm....

The "Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross", as found on their website here, states the following as one of its main guiding principles:

Neutrality: In order to continue to enjoy the confidence of all, the Movement may not take sides in hostilities or engage at any time in controversies of a political, racial, religious or ideological nature.

Am I missing something? How is it that they can knowingly help terrorists? Please explain. Considering the International Red Cross' long standing history of not welcoming Magen David Adom (Israel's version) into their organization (Magen David Adom was admitted in June along with the Palestinian Red Crescent), I have never been a big fan. But now!?

By the way, check out this great little video from Aish (not always my favorite organization, but I'm pleased with this one for sure!) that gives an excellent and brief explanation of some of the news photo fraud that has been propagated in the current war between Israel and Lebanon.
