Former presidents Clinton, Bush to help on Haiti
Former US presidents Bill Clinton and George W Bush have agreed to help US efforts to provide relief to Haiti following the devastating earthquake, an official close to Bush confirmed, dpa reported.
The source, who requested anonymity because their roles had not been officially announced by the White House, confirmed to the German Press Agency dpa that President Barack Obama asked the two men to help out.
While in office, Bush tapped Clinton along with his father, former president George Bush, to help raise money after the 2004 tsunami that struck Southeast Asia.
Obama sharply criticized the 43rd president during his campaign and since taking office has continued to fault some of his immediate predecessor's policies.
Clinton has been serving as the special UN envoy for Haiti.
