THE WORLD IS TOO SMALL,

OUR WISDOM TOO LIMITED,

OUR TIME HERE TOO SHOR TO WASTE ANY MORE OF I IN WINNING FLEETING VICTORIES

AT OTHER PEOPLE'S EXPENSE.

THE CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE,

WHICH BRINGS:

PHILANTHROPISTS AND CEOS

TOGETHER WITH NON-PROFITS

TO MAKE CONCRETE COMMITMENTS

AIMED AT SOME OF THE WORLD'S

TOUGHEST PROBLEMS.

ALMOST 10 YEARS IN, THEY HAVE

LEVERAGED BILLIONS OF DOLLARS

IN ASSISTANCE:

IN MORE THAN 180 COUNTRIES.

BILL:
CGI WAS DESIGNED

TO TACKLE BIG GLOBAL CHALLENGES

IN BITE-SIZE PIECES

WITH THE CONVICTION THA REGARDLESS OF SIZE OR SCOPE,

OUR PROBLEMS WILL YIELD

TO CONCERTED ACTION

AND INNOVATIVE PARTNERSHIPS

OF INDIVIDUALS, NGOS,

BUSINESSES, AND GOVERNMENTS.

WE HAVE TO NOW FIND A WAY

TO TRIUMPH TOGETHER.

HILLARY:
ALL THE PROBLEMS

THAT WE FACE,

FROM CLIMATE CHANGE

TO FINANCIAL CONTAGION

TO NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION, ARE

TOO COMPLEX AND CROSS-CUTTING

FOR ANY ONE GOVERNMENT OR INDEED

FOR GOVERNMENTS TO SOLVE ALONE.

AS WE BELIEVE THAT ENDING HUNGER

IS NOT ONLY POSSIBLE,

BUT IT IS BOTH A MORAL

AND STRATEGIC IMPERATIVE.

WOMAN:
HILLARY CLINTON IS TRYING

TO SHIFT THE SPOTLIGH TO GLOBAL WARMING.

THE PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER

UNVEILING HER PLANS

TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE.

BILL:
TOGETHER WITH

INNOVATIVE PARTNERS

FROM THE PUBLIC:

AND PRIVATE SECTORS,

WE'RE WORKING TO MAKE HOMES,

UNIVERSITIES, AND CITIES

MORE ENERGY-EFFICIENT.

HILLARY:
WE SHARE

A COMMON FUTURE:

AND WE ARE HERE:

TO FIND COMMON GROUND.

WOMEN MUST BE EMPOWERED.

MAN:
IT'S CLASSIC BILL CLINTON.

BY USING HIS BIRTHDAY TO HELP

THE CAUSES HE CHAMPIONS,

FROM COMBATING CLIMATE CHANGE

TO OBESITY AND EVEN HIV/AIDS.

HELP BRING:

NEW DIGNITY AND RESPEC TO WOMEN AND GIRLS

ALL OVER THE WORLD.

AND IN SO DOING, BRING

NEW STRENGTH AND STABILITY

TO FAMILIES AS WELL.

BILL:
WE ARE TRYING

TO DO SOMETHING:

NO ONE HAS EVER DONE BEFORE.

A NEW REPORT TODAY CLAIMS

THAT THE CLINTON FOUNDATION

GIVES ABOUT 10% OF

ITS MONEY THAT IT RAISES

TO ACTUAL CHARITIES AND THE

SERVICES THAT THEY OFFER.

WOMAN:
IT HAS BEEN

REPORTED YOU'VE MADE

5 MILLION MAKING SPEECHES.

THE PRESIDENT'S MADE

MORE THAN $100 MILLION.

HILLARY:
WELL,

IF, IF YOU,

YOU HAVE NO REASON

TO REMEMBER, BU WE CAME OUT OF

THE WHITE HOUSE:

NOT ONLY DEAD BROKE

BUT IN DEBT.

MAN:
6 YEARS AGO,

HILLARY CLINTON WAS

ABOUT TO BECOME:

SECRETARY OF STATE.

BARACK OBAMA HAD NOMINATED HER,

EVERYONE KNEW SHE WAS GONNA BE

CONFIRMED BY THE SENATE,

GONNA BE CONFIRMED EASILY.

BUT THERE WAS A THOUGHT,

THERE WAS A QUESTION,

THERE WAS A DOUBT OUT THERE

ABOUT A POTENTIAL

CONFLICT OF INTEREST.

MAN 2:
THE CLINTON FOUNDATION

DROPPING ITS SELF-IMPOSED BAN

ON COLLECTING FUNDS FROM

FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS AND ENTITIES

AND NOW THE "WASHINGTON POST"

REPORTS TOTAL CONTRIBUTIONS

TO THAT FOUNDATION

AMOUNT TO $2 BILLION.

THERE'S A LOT OF MONEY

SLOSHING AROUND,

EVERYTHING IS BLURRED,

AND IT'S NOT GOOD.

WOMAN:
THE QUESTIONS

SCREAM OUT AT ME.

WHAT IN THE WORLD

HAPPENED WITH THE FOUNDATION

AND THESE ULTERIOR MOTIVES AND

THIS MONEY AND THE EMAIL SERVER?

I'M SORRY.

THOSE SCREAM OUT AT ME.

MAN:
THE AMOUNT OF SCHMOOZING

INVOLVED AND CROSSING LINES

AND ONE PERSON PUTTING

MONEY IN A FOUNDATION

AND THEN CLINTON

GETTING UNBELIEVABLE AMOUNTS

FOR HIS SPEECHES, CONTRACTS

GOING ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

IT'S NOT GOOD.

HILLARY:
I LOOK FORWARD

TO WORKING WITH ALL OF YOU,

PARTICULARLY THE APPROPRIATORS.

UH, WE HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO

AND IT IS SUCH IMPORTANT WORK

THAT LIES AHEAD.

BILL:
WE DID THIS WITH

A VERY SIMPLE STRATEGY.

MAN:
AFRICA IS

A CONTINENT THAT HAS BEEN

A CHAMBER OF HORRORS

FOR DECADES.

IT'S REALLY NOT THE FAUL OF THE AFRICAN PEOPLE.

IT'S LARGELY A RESUL OF THE KIND OF SYSTEM

THAT'S BEEN PERPETUATED THERE.

YOU HAVE THESE OLIGARCHS,

WHICH DOMINATE THESE COUNTRIES

THAT OFTENTIMES HAVE

NATURAL RESOURCES

THAT CAN BE VERY LUCRATIVE.

AND THESE OLIGARCHS

STRIKE DEALS:

WITH FOREIGN CORPORATIONS

OR FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS,

WHO IN EFFECT PROP THEM UP

AND PUT THEM IN POWER,

AND IN EXCHANGE, THESE OLIGARCHS

GIVE THESE ENTITIES

ACCESS TO RICH:

MINERAL DEPOSITS.

AND THE CLINTONS

YOU WOULD EXPECT TO BE

OPPOSED TO THIS SORT OF THING,

AND THAT'S AT LEAS WHAT THEIR LANGUAGE DOES.

OUR COUNTRIES HAVE DEEPENED

OUR COOPERATION ON MANY ISSUES

INCLUDING GOOD GOVERNANCE

AND TRANSPARENCY, ENERGY,

REGIONAL SECURITY,

AND ADVANCING:

PEACE AND DEVELOPMEN IN THE NIGER DELTA.

PETER:
THE PROBLEM

IS, THEIR WORDS

ARE DIFFEREN FROM THEIR ACTIONS.

MAN:
RWANDA HAS REALLY TAKEN

AN IMPRESSIVE PROJECTOR

OF DEVELOPMEN AND THE PEOPLE HERE

STILL THINK KAGAME'S THE MAN

TO TAKE THEM TO ANOTHER LEVEL.

MAN 2:
PRESIDENT PAUL KAGAME HAS

WALKED ALL AROUND THE CROWD,

THANKING THE PEOPLE FOR

ELECTING HIM UNOPPOSED

AS CHAIRMAN OF THE RPF,

THE PRESIDENT OF THE RPF,

FOR ANOTHER 7-YEAR TERM.

BUT HIS CRITICS:

SAY THAT FAR FROM

ENTRENCHING DEMOCRACY

IN RWANDA,

HE'S ACTUALLY ERODING I BY SILENCING HIS OPPOSITION.

MAN:
PAUL KAGAME

HAS BEEN PRAISED BY

BILL CLINTON AND THE

CLINTON FOUNDATION.

BUT THE FACT OF THE MATTER

IS PAUL KAGAME:

HAS A TERRIBLE:

HUMAN RIGHTS RECORD.

HE'S ACCUSED OF AIDING

MILITARY OPERATIONS

IN THE NEIGHBORING

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO--

AND THAT ACTUALLY FORCED THE

RECRUITMENT OF CHILD SOLDIERS.

THE U.N. HAS IDENTIFIED HIM

AS BEING INVOLVED IN ACTIVITIES

THAT ENTAILED MASSIVE

HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS.

WOMAN:
NEWER OPPOSITION PARTIES
