Clinton's Rich Legacy


Business Week runs a lengthy story about the shadowy oil trader network which enabled the Oil For Food Scandal at the UN to benefit Saddam Hussein. At its heart is Marc Rich.

Let no one forget that Marc Rich was pardoned by Bill Clinton in the last hours of his presidency. Had Rich remained a fugitive from American justice, many more investigative tools could have been used, and there is the possibility that the OFF manipulations would have come to light, or would have been limited in scope.

Don't hold your breath waiting for the mainstream media to publicize this little dividend of the Clinton legacy.
