Bill Clinton former United States president has been given the position as the top U.N. envoy. As the U.N. envoy Mr. Clinton first goal will be
promoting recovery in countries that had been damaged by tsunamis, he will also demand accountability for the billions donated by individuals and
Clinton's goal is to work for the tsunami victims he met on his first trip to the region in February as a U.S. envoy with former president George
H.W. Bush and make sure "we leave these people better off than they were before this horrendous event occurred," Bowles said.
Clinton is scheduled to make his first public appearance as a U.N. envoy Wednesday.
He is to meet with Secretary General Kofi Annan for the first time since his appointment was announced on Feb. 1, and they will hold a news
conference, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric announced Friday.

I would be interested to see where and how this 7 to 12 billion that was raised for tsunami-hit countries is being spent.
I also wonder what’s in it for Slick Willy, I just don't trust politicians of any strip who offer there help, there always seems to be a catch
somewhere for someone or some corporations, guess I will have to wait and see what floats to the top.
