Clinton Foundation Donors and Their Approved State Department Weapons Deals…

International Business Times has an interesting article outlining millions of dollars given to the Clinton Foundation coinciding with an increase of approvals for military weapons sales to those same donor groups.

Hillary clinton meh(Via IBT) […]  Under Clinton’s leadership, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation, according to an IBTimes analysis of State Department and foundation data. That figure — derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) — represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term.

The Clinton-led State Department also authorized $151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals for 16 of the countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation, resulting in a 143 percent increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration. These extra sales were part of a broad increase in American military exports that accompanied Obama’s arrival in the White House.

American defense contractors also donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and in some cases made personal payments to Bill Clinton for speaking engagements. Such firms and their subsidiaries were listed as contractors in $163 billion worth of Pentagon-negotiated deals that were authorized by the Clinton State Department between 2009 and 2012.

The State Department formally approved these arms sales even as many of the deals enhanced the military power of countries ruled by authoritarian regimes whose human rights abuses had been criticized by the department. Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar all donated to the Clinton Foundation and also gained State Department clearance to buy caches of American-made weapons even as the department singled them out for a range of alleged ills, from corruption to restrictions on civil liberties to violent crackdowns against political opponents.   (read more)

    Question for SD.

    It has never set well with me the motivation for HRC to want to take out Kadaffi. What was her grievance against him?

    Seeing all the others on the list who have been ponying up, I started wondering if the reason she grew a big pair with Zero Footprint, et al was to send a message to everyone that she indeed have a big pair and if you do not pay up, this is what happens to you.

    Did Muhamar essentially tell her to f/o when she had her hand out?

    Just a musing as my serum caffeine levels subside…….

    • I don’t think there’s any question that Khaddafi was ousted and murdered to facilitate the plans of HRC crony Sidney Blumenthal and his cohorts who wanted to set up business in Libya. No wonder Hillary concocted that ridiculous “blame the video” excuse when the BS hit the fan in Benghazi. Look at how she ran from culpability – never mind that her friend and U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was assassinated. Look at the chaos in Libya ever since. Hillary’s greed knows no bounds.

      You want to know why Democrats have a hard time pointing to a single accomplishment of Hillary Clinton’s during her tenure as Secretary of State? This is why; she spent her entire time in that post brokering deals to enrich herself and her husband. She simply CANNOT be elected President. She is dangerous!

  3. Not sure about HRC’s motivations, but I do know that many, many people, not the least of whom were family members, hated Gaddafi because he was responsible for the Lockerbie bombing case, and publicly and ostentatiously welcomed the actual bomber released, alive, from prison by the UK.

    Hillary Clinton’s willingness to allow those with business before the State Department to finance her foundation heightens concerns about how she would manage such relationships as president, said Lawrence Lessig, the director of Harvard University’s Safra Center for Ethics.

    Gee, ya think?

    GOP Congress does nothing. Independent Counsel Reauthorization Act died of loneliness. Obama has vetoed a grand total of 4 bills. WH & Congress vs. citizens.

    • Wow. I’m truly amazed to see that Obama has vetoed fewer bills than any other President in modern history. But, it makes sense that this is the case since until recently he held Congress squarely in his pocket. Yet, even now with the long-awaited GOP dominated House and Senate, still nothing has emerged that contradicts his agenda.

      Remind me, just what was it that was expected to happen when the Progs lost control of the Senate?

    Foreign arms purchases could be and in part are a natural reaction to US disengagement from the region. However, “donations” to the Clinton Foundation is an unbelievable conflict of interest. To think of the leverage foreign contributors have and their off-the-record influence coupled with the lethality of weapons and the power of the US Gov— its a perfect receipt for WW III.

    Anyone familiar with Krisanne Hall? (She was fired from her job as a lawyer because she taught a class on the U.S. Constitution in her spare time. She is still fearlessly teaching that class). Read what she says about Hillary and the letter sent to Trey Goudy (she gives me such hope!).
