Submission + - Bill Clinton aids uranium company, gets donation->

Shadow of Eternity writes: In an interesting visit to Kazakhastan former president Bill Clinton has not only turned the uranium mining industry on it's head, but also contradicted US and international foreign policy and recieved a substantial donation (and pledged future donation) to the William J. Clinton Foundation.

"Mr. Nazarbayev walked away from the table with a propaganda coup, after Mr. Clinton expressed enthusiastic support for the Kazakh leader's bid to head an international organization that monitors elections and supports democracy. Mr. Clinton's public declaration undercut both American foreign policy and sharp criticism of Kazakhstan's poor human rights record by, among others, Mr. Clinton's wife, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York.... Within 48 hours of Mr. Clinton's departure from Almaty on Sept. 7, Mr. Giustra got his deal. UrAsia signed two memorandums of understanding that paved the way for the company to become partners with Kazatomprom in three mines."

Given that these incidents occured as far back as 2005 and are only now being reported just before the Super Tuesday primary elections one has to wonder if the NY Times planned to help Bill finally screw his wife.
