Met with Kim Jong Ill of NK in a diplomatic effort of getting him to stop his Nuclear Program.
The meeting with Kim was a special occasion because Ms. Albright danced with the dictator and gave him a basketball signed by Michael Jordon.
Of course, Ms. Albright secured nothing from Kim who continued his nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs unchecked despite the hot dance session with Madeleine.
Holder's best claim to Clinton fame is the fact that he championed the pardon of millionaire fugitive Marc Rich. Holder pushed the pardon past the normal channels and put it directly on the desk of Bill Clinton, who signed off, sending Rich a free "get out of jail" card.
Christopher oversaw the destruction of State Department controls over satellite, space and military exports to China. President Clinton signed waiver after waiver for Loral, Lockheed and Hughes to send some of America's most advanced technology to the Chinese army. Finally, Clinton got tired of sending waivers to Christopher and removed the State Department oversight of space exports altogether.
Perry was a professor at Stanford working with Dr. John Lewis and Hua Di, a former Chinese missile scientist turned defector, when he was picked to run the Clinton Defense Department.
Perry brought his friends with him to his new slot at Defense. In fact, Dr. Lewis became a paid adviser to Perry and Hua Di had access at the Pentagon.
Perry also contacted an old buddy in the Chinese army, Gen. Ding Henggao. Ding too had been promoted to run a military group whose purpose was to obtain advanced technology. Perry wrote Ding, noting his "support for our bilateral military relationship.”
It was during these meetings with Ding that Perry set up plans to train the Chinese Air Force, transfer U.S. made super-computers to Chinese nuclear weapons labs and allow Chinese officers to tour U.S. bases including Edwards Air Force Base. Still, the best deal was to send secure fiber optic communications to the Chinese army.
Ding had his wife, Gen. Madam Nie, set up a front company staffed with Chinese military officers. Nie then hired Perry's old pals from Stanford, Dr. Lewis and Hua Di. Hua Di even noted that he was the "matchmaker" for the fiber optic deal.
So while Dr. Lewis was paid by the U.S. government as an advisor to Perry, he was also pulling a check from the Chinese Army and from Stanford University.
The export went through despite heated opposition from the NSA and even some of Perry's defense underlings. In the end, the GAO wrote a scathing report on the deal.
With the heat now on - Hua Di - Perry's defector friend - suddenly defected back to China and has not been heard from since.
Oh, and the secure fiber optic system? The Chinese re-sold it to Iraq where it became the "Tiger Song" air defense network. Saddam used it to shoot missiles at allied planes and it was bombed repeatedly until Iraq was over-run in 2003.
To this day, Perry will not talk about Lewis, Ding, Hua Di or Tiger Song.
So, while Obama is trying to use these old Clinton hacks to improve his national security image, it is clear that he is just loading his camp with rejects and failures.
As the Indonesian's so kindly put it "corruption, collusion, and nepotism.
In May 1996 Madeleine Albright, who was then the U.S. ambassador to the UN, was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl, in reference to years of U.S.-led economic sanctions against Iraq,
We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that is more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?
To which Ambassador Albright responded,
I think that is a very hard choice, but the price, we think, the price is worth it.
