The back story on the Clinton Foundation and Haiti

In a series of candid email exchanges with top Clinton Foundation officials during the hours after the massive 2010 Haiti earthquake, a senior aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton repeatedly gave special attention to those identified by the abbreviations “FOB” (friends of Bill Clinton) or “WJC VIPs” (William Jefferson Clinton VIPs).

“Need you to flag when people are friends of WJC,” wrote Caitlin Klevorick, then a senior State Department official who was juggling incoming offers of assistance being funneled to the State Department by the Clinton Foundation. “Most I can probably ID but not all.”

The Clintons should be the last people to send to a disaster, after all the disasters they've caused or been involved in.

Like Bush did any better with LA. Appointing someone with zero experience to head relief efforts. If you would all like to put your money where your mouth is there are fine local charities working directly with Haiti to get your donations (food or money) to those who need it

This whole affair with Clinton as the point man for Haiti's post-earthquake support was a disaster in itself, giving license for the Clinton friends to make fast millions, create near-slave labor and rape the land and its people. And Bill gladhanded and smiled through the whole thing, taking his cut to the tune of more millions while hundreds of thousands were homeless, starving and dying of disease.
The latest hurricane has added insult to injury with no end in sight.
This is the caliber of the Clintons' humanitarian service, which is mostly lip service while the hands are in the pockets of donors and taxpayers.

The U.S. has a checkered history in major disaster relief efforts, with the more recent ones being the worst examples. It's as if one disaster is poorly dealt with and it's pretended that another one will never occur, with nothing learned from the previous one.
The Haitian earthquake was a prime example.

Well, I guess we did learn to never send another Clinton to head up the relief effort. Or did we?

Insanity is doing the same thing the same way and expecting a different (positive) outcome. The proven fact is the Clinton's never turn to sanity.
