More from Wikileaks: Haiti Was a Playground for FOBs


FOBs are friends of Bill’s as in Bill Clinton. FOBs did very well in the ‘charitable’ Clinton’s Haiti venture.

During this most recent hurricane, more than 300 people died and many of those who didn’t saw their homes destroyed. They are running out of food and water. Much of the island does not have electricity. They don’t have the infrastructure to deal with hurricanes even after the last hurricane and the billions the Clintons allegedly collected for Haiti.

A lot of the money went to FOBs and a new trove of Wikileaks emails makes that clear.

In 2010, a massive 7.0 earthquake devastated Haiti, killing more than 200,000 people, leveling 100,000 homes, and leaving 1.5 million people destitute. It drew sympathy from around the world and more than 10 billion dollars poured in but, outside of posh hotels and an industrial park, no one knows where the money went.

Bill Clinton established the Haiti Reconstruction Fund. Hillary, as secretary of state, was in charge of US aid to Haiti. They controlled most of the money to Haiti, National Review Online reported.

A number of the US aid contracts to companies for Haiti reconstruction went to Clinton Foundation donors and the contracts were tailored to the companies and over-priced consulting firms. The Haitians noticed and have complained to no avail.

For example, Warren Buffet, an active member of the Clinton Global Initiative, owns Clayton Homes which had a contract for hurricane-proof trailers. What they delivered were unlivable trailers that were unsafe and filled with high levels of formaldehyde.

The National Review Online wrote that the Clintons claimed to have built schools in Haiti, but the New York Times discovered that “built” to the Clintons is a relative term. For example, the newspaper located a school featured in the Clinton Foundation annual report as “built through a Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action.” In reality, “The Clinton Foundation’s sole direct contribution to the school was a grant for an Earth Day celebration and tree-building activity.”

In 2011, the Clinton Foundation brokered a deal with Digicel, a cell-phone-service provider that wanted access to the Haitian market. It is owned by a Clinton crony, Dennis O’Brien, who donated extravagantly to The Clinton Foundation.

Digicel, thanks to the Clintons, the Bonnie and Clyde of politics, arranged for them to receive millions in US tax dollars to provide mobile phones which were given free to Haitians.

Digicel did make money off the Haitians though, every time they used the phones to make calls or transfer money.

The company had three-quarters of the Haitian market by 2012, shortly before Hillary left office, the Review wrote.

The United States government also paid Digicel $45 million to open a luxurious hotel in Port-au-Prince. It didn’t do much for the poor and it didn’t attract investors.

Even the building of the industrial park was given to Clinton cronies.

Hillary’s brother Hugh Rodham was put on the board of a US mining company VCS though he is a former private detective and prison guard with no experience in the industry, but he promised them a lucrative mining contract in Haiti. He did come through and it was one of two gold mining permits handed out in 50 years. Haitians weren’t happy because these are people who do not share in the interests of the Haitian people.

The Clintons have robbed from the most destitute and enriched themselves.

Haitians know and the Haitian community in the United States has been active protesting, demanding to know where the money went, but the Clintons have refused to meet with them.

We now have emails, thanks to Wikileaks, which prove that contracts were stamped FOBs, when they were sent in for approval of government contracts that were under the auspices of Hillary Clinton.
