Hillary Clinton is claiming that she was unaware of her husband’s involvement in promoting the Dubai ports deal.
Hillary Clinton, a leading opponent of DP World’s takeover of some US port operations, was this week forced to admit that she did not know her husband had advised Dubai leaders on how to handle the growing dispute.
But is she being honest? Was she really that out of the loop?
But former President Bill Clinton’s ties to Dubai and the United Arab Emirates should not have come as a surprise to his New York senator wife.
Mrs Clinton’s own senatorial financial disclosure forms reveal that her husband earned $450,000 giving speeches in Dubai in 2002.
Officials from the UAE also donated between $500,000 and $1m to fund Mr Clinton’s presidential library in Arkansas.
And this isn’t the first time she’s claimed to be unaware of a big story unfolding in her own household.
She’s either a habitual liar, or she’s completely clueless. I wonder which of the two she’ll choose for her 2008 campaign.
