Clintons Library donation list finally made public...Saudi Arabia, blackwater, pardoned fugative top donors

Saudi Arabia Among Biggest Donors to Clinton Foundation
Bill Clinton's foundation disclosed the names of its 205,000 donors on a Web site Thursday, ending a decade of resistance to identifying the sources of its money.


Thursday, December 18, 2008


Former President Bill Clinton's foundation has raised at least $46 million from Saudi Arabia and other foreign governments that his wife Hillary Rodham Clinton may end up negotiating with as the next secretary of state.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia gave $10 million to $25 million to the William J. Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit created by the former president to finance his library in Little Rock, Ark., and charitable efforts to reduce poverty and treat AIDS. Other foreign government givers include Norway, Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman, Italy and Jamaica. The Dutch national lottery gave $5 million to $10 million.

  • Oh oh. If you think we have been suffering from an endemically corrupt government, just wait for Clinton to take over "state" and for Kennedy to take over her senate seat. We the people are suffering from not just corruption, but also from dynastic empires. All of this is bound to not have a very happy ending.

  • wow, wonder why the saudis did that? i can understand the pardon cases, you definitely make the payoff or else, buddy, but might that saudi money be indicative of something else? like maybe real corruption under our collective noses?
    at least the bush family had legitimate business dealings with the oil pushers. what did (or do) the clintons have?

    • legitimate business dealings started by George Bush's father while he was head of the CIA, yes. i don't suppose you know anything about the Bush family / Bin Laden family financial connection? Or the fact that Enron was Bush's greatest campaign donor both times? Or the fact that the Bush administration kept putting the likes of Exxon executives in control of US energy policy?

      change you can believe in?

  • shockingly enough las i know all that. i'm just never suprised because i expect it. from both sides. if you want to start listing dirty business dealings concerning members of our government you're going to lose your fingertips from typing.
    all i want is for people to realize that it's not an issue with the left or the right. the system is infected on both sides.
    i have real reasons to dislike bush anyway. like the fact that i'm from texas, and he was one of the owners of the texas rangers ba More..

    • i don't think the status quo is changing for either party

      i voted for what i perceived as the lesser of two evils. that's the way i always vote -- and it's the reason why i also vote Republican whenever i see fit (because i perceive the Democrat as the greater of two evils).

      we're on the same page, in that regard, i just don't think the solution is to vote independent or 3rd party after 8 years of George Bush. it was crucial that McCain lost because we needed to heal some of the damage Republi More..

    • i'll give obama this, he ended 'black guilt' in one fell swoop.
      lesser of two evil? selling out is wrong, and i can think of no reason why playing that game could be acceptable. either one of them would have been selling out my conscience. i refused to vote for either of them simply because they represent together everything wrong with what's going on in america.
      and obama is no neocon. his voting record (when he doesn't abstain) is one of the farthest left in public service, and since i don' More..

    • i'm not crazy about Obama, either, not given his agreeing to amend FISA so telecoms and the government are immune from spying on us without a warrant -- that was the first major blow to my confidence in Obama. then his thanking AIPAC after Hillary bothered me because his first loyalty should be to us -- not an Israeli lobby. also his talking about invading Pakistan if there is actionable intelligence -- that sounds potentially neocon to me because neocons love invading other countries preemptive More..
