Newly leaked documents provide further details on what Harper’s magazine calls the Clinton family’s “slush fund”, the Clinton Foundation.
As Secretary of State (the US government position chiefly responsible for coordinating US international arms trafficking), Hillary Clinton accepted millions of dollars in “donations” from the dictator of Bahrain, Hamad bin Isa al Khalifa, then increased US weapons sales to him by 137% during his brutal, Saudi-backed crackdown on pro-democracy protestors.
The crackdown, as reported by Amnesty International, has included murder and child-torture. In 2009, a Clinton State Department official stated that al Khalifa’s weapons coordinator was a “good friend of ours”.
Within Hillary Clinton’s increase in arms trafficking to the dictator of Bahrain was a 10,000% increase in transfers of “toxicological agents”.
IB Times also points out that beyond Bahrain, US arms exports in general “substantially increased to governments that donated to the Clinton Foundation”.*
