US War Crimes Bring Huge War Profits. (From LRC Blog)

It seems like just yesterday that President Clinton's moralizing humanitarian interventionists were taking the US into an illegal war in partnership with the terrorist Kosovo Liberation Army (a 1990s version of current US partner, the "Free Syrian Army").

Now in Kosovo, where you can stroll down Bob Dole Street and Bill Clinton Blvd. while admiring the hulking and grotesquely cartoonish statue of our 42nd president, the "liberators" of that tiny mafia state have returned to collect their rewards for bathing the Balkans in blood. Madeleine Albright's Albright Capital Management is duking it out with a firm tied to James W. Pardew, Clinton's special envoy to the Balkans, to secure purchase of the state telecommunications company. The deal could be worth nearly a billion dollars and would be particularly beneficial to Albright, as she is already a shareholder in the only competitor telecommunications firm in Kosovo.

This is how it works: US gives aid to foreign recipient country which in turn hires powerful lobbying firm packed with former and future senior government figures who are paid well to know the ropes. That firm proceeds to lobby and propagandize the US government and people for yet more aid and assistance. And round and round it goes.
