The nation at present has little business granting major aid to foreign nations in distress, laudable as each scheme sounds. At present the country can't afford it and there is no end to the appeals and never will be. The $21 millions in aid is not a major program, by Washington standards; State Department diplomats should not be allowed to extend it into one or set up a long-range Bangladesh program.
