Trouble at the Doublewide

Why does this not surprise me:
Saudis, Arabs Funneled Millions to President Clinton's Library
LITTLE ROCK, ARK. - President Clinton's new $165 million library here was funded in part by gifts of $1 million or more each from the Saudi royal family and three Saudi businessmen.
The governments of Dubai, Kuwait, and Qatar and the deputy prime minister of Lebanon all also appear to have donated $1 million or more for the archive and museum that opened last week...
Information about the donors is available to the public on a single touch-screen computer mounted on a wall on the third floor of the recently opened library. Eventually, most who have contributed $100,000 or more will be listed on a wall in the museum's lobby, Mr. Kessel said.
However, some donors have asked that their names not be released. "We don't have many," Mr. Kessel said, adding, "It doesn't involve anyone controversial."
The computer lists donors by categories that correspond to the size of the gift. But there are no dollar figures provided for each of the funding levels.
Asked why the donor categories were not publicly defined, Mr. Kessel said,"It was a decision we made.We really don't need to at this point."

More and more the old adage that "What they accuse you of they are guilty of" voiced by Rush, Sean and countless others is just laugh-out-loud-ably true.
