Why Did the Clinton Foundation Fund Dangerous, Unhealthy Trailers in Haiti?

In the wake of Haiti's devastating earthquake last year, the Clinton Foundation funded the construction of hundreds of highly toxic, moldy, searingly hot emergency shelter trailers. Vulnerable to hurricanes and built by the same firm sued for causing sickness in Hurricane Katrina victims, some of the trailers are laced with formaldehyde and have already begun to rot.

On Democracy Now!, Isabel Macdonald and Isabeau Doucet, who exposed the trailer conditions in their recent Nation article, speak about Bill Clinton and Haiti's opaque, perilous reconstruction process.
