Skip to comments.Diana Fund gives millions to Clinton charity, despite his betrayal on landmines

The Princess Diana Memorial Fund has given almost £2million to the Bill Clinton Foundation - even though the former US President betrayed a promise he made to Diana to ban landmines. The news has shocked the Princesss many supporters who still remember how, despite his pledge, Mr Clinton ultimately bowed to Pentagon pressure and refused to sign a treaty forbidding use of the weapons. The US still uses landmines in hotspots such as the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea.
Under the Clinton administration, American agents also bugged Dianas phone calls when she stayed with her friend Lucia Fletcher de Lima at the Brazilian Embassy in Washington. The National Security Agency still holds a top-secret file of about 30 transcripts of those personal chats, which Mr Clinton may have read. I just cant imagine why the Memorial Fund would have given money to Mr Clinton. He broke his promise to Diana and failed to support her most important campaign, said a retired British diplomat in Washington who met the Princess during her many visits. Mr Clinton has been obliged to name all the donors to his foundation - totalling more than 200,000 - as a condition of his wife Hillary taking up her new position as Secretary of State under President Barack Obama. There are suspicions that foreign governments and international tycoons have been giving vast sums to the Clinton Foundation to buy access and favours from the former president.

"Put some ice on it..."
None of this matters anymore. OLIGARCY rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bravo Sierra: Other than the tiny Joint Security Area (JSA) we no longer have American troops on the DMZ and haven’t for quite some time. The ROKs (South Koreans) have millions of landmines placed, but how is that our affair?
Land mines are still necessary to provide security for our troops.
I care about the safety of AMERICAN troops. If landmines help protect our troops then I am all for them.
That’s fine, but I understand Diana’s point of “When you leave, can you take the landmines with you? Otherwise, people can’t farm the land”.
A good reminder to NEVER donate to organized charities.
They are rarely, if ever, what they seem.
Keep your charitable giving very close to your own community.
“Lady” Di, was party prime with a Saudi Prince about to give birth to a MO! Now do you think that that sweet child would be like her first two Sons?
Diana was a Trator to the Crown and the old Lady knew it!
Wonder what Bubba’s got on the late princess....?
Just what one charity doing giving to another charity.
Gotta love the guy!
I know it’s over a month old, but Diana never really understood the realities of a lot of things, like war.
