Morocco Buys Hillary Clinton and Western Sahara Suffers, by Wayne Madsen.
In what amounted to one of the most egregious examples of Hillary Clinton’s “pay-to-play” extortion racket, King Mohammed VI of Morocco donated a handsome $12 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation in return for a promise by Mrs. Clinton to speak at a Clinton Global Initiative conference scheduled for May of 2015 in Morocco.
Because the conference was scheduled for the month after Clinton declared her intentions to run for president of the United States, she did not attend. However, Clinton sent her husband Bill and daughter Chelsea to the event in her place. …
In accepting $12 million from Morocco, the Clintons are advancing a US foreign policy that has supported Morocco’s annexation of Western Sahara and its repression of the Sahrawi people.
Since 1975, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Saguia el Hamra and Rio de Oro (POLISARIO) has waged a struggle for Sahrawi independence in the face of overwhelming Moroccan military and diplomatic might. The Clintons are no different from the Bush family in advancing the interests of mining and military interests over the inalienable right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination. …
POLISARIO believes that in return for the cash donation Mrs. Clinton would «support their brutal occupation of Western Sahara.”
A Hillary Clinton presidency will also likely see the establishment of a permanent headquarters base for the US Africa Command (AFRICOM) in Morocco. The Pentagon has already conducted a feasibility study for an AFRICOM headquarters in Morocco.
That is how US policy is made nowadays? That explains a lot…
