Text copied verbatim from Chandler's 2006 book[edit]

The paragraph

  • The NGOs and the church-funded campaigns became the main propagandists and source of international support for the Biafran struggle. The Joint Church Airlift supplied aid and attempted to establish a Biafran air force, against the Federal Military Government's opposition. This led to a federal ban on outside aid flights. The ICRC did not engage in any publicity and accepted the FMG’s ban on aid flights. This position was condemned by the more interventionist and partisan aid NGOs. A leading critic was French doctor Bernard Kouchner, who declared that their silence over Biafra made its workers ‘accomplices in the systematic massacre of a population’.

Without reading that book it is not possible for me to confirm your statement, but the paragraph does appear to be taken verbatim from the online source cited at the bottom of that paragraph. As the one responsible for it being uploaded onto Wikipedia, I accept responsibility for this error and will correct it. There was more than one contributor to the article and the final editing check was obviously not complete. Please review after the next edit and make further changes if you feel it needs it.
