Look no further than Haiti as an example of Clinton machinations undermining development, writes Mary Anastasia O’Grady in the WSJ. After the January 2010 earthquake, Bill Clinton was put in charge of U.S. reconstruction efforts. That meant, Ms. O’Grady was told, “…if you don’t have Clinton connections, you won’t be in the game.” The “game” was about securing hundreds of millions of dollars in no-bid contracts from the State Department’s U.S. Agency for International Development and grants from multilateral institutions, which get the bulk of its funding from the U.S.
Ms. O’Grady continues, “The U.S. Founding Fathers went out of their way to establish a republic guided by the rule of law and not the rule of men.” Read here how, under the Clintons, established protocols were tossed aside in Haiti.
