Bill Clinton, in what has to be one of the most redemptive moments in international politics I’ve ever seen, publicly renounced American international food aid policies and apologized for the way in which his own tarrifs and relief strategies in Haiti effectively increased poverty and sapped the dignity of the poor. He says, ““It was a mistake. . . I have to live everyday with the consequences of the loss of capacity to produce a rice crop in Haiti.” Why? Because of the rice we gave away to Haitians. Clinton says our generosity helped Arkansas farmers while hurting the Haitian people.
