    Initial US Pledge for Tsunami Aid

    Wow. Even more stunning was the initial pledge of $4 million that I missed. By the day after the tsunami, the government would have had a pretty good general idea about the extent of the damage if not all the specifics. From the Washington Times:
    The United States pledged $4 million the day after the tsunami struck. That amount was increased to $15 million on the second day of the crisis and to $35 million on the third day.
