Heinz Outsourcing

Drudge has one of is patented reports claiming (in part):

Three members of Congress are alleging that Teresa Heinz Kerry's foundation, The Heinz Endowments, has given millions to radical groups, some linked to terrorists, and located Heinz factories overseas.

The Heinz Endowments and the Kerry-Edwards campaign are categorically denying these claims and call the allegations "bogus."
Aside from politics, I don't see the problem with outsourcing their factories. The knee-jerk reaction to lie is, however, significant and predictable (did they really lie...it appears so).

As for the funding of groups with ties to terrorists, I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt...but only so far. It's not hard to imagine a situation wherein a large corporation (or Endowment) gives money to a group in good faith, only to find out later that the group is somehow tied to terrorists. The question I have is: When it became clear that a given group was in bed with the bad guys, what did The Heinz Endowments do?
