Bill Clinton on Rwandan genocide: "I regret it"

CNN's Erin Burnett talks to Pres. Bill Clinton about his biggest regret during the 1994 Rwandan genocide.

William J. Clinton Foundation press release:

President Clinton is beginning his week-long trip through Africa to visit some of the Clinton Foundation projects that you help make possible – projects that are strengthening health systems and expanding access to lifesaving treatments for HIV/AIDS and malaria; enabling sustainable development for families and communities; helping cities combat climate change through alternative waste management and clean transportation programs; and preserving and regrowing Africa's forests. Follow his trip on the Foundation's new blog, Clinton Foundation | Up Close.

Each country, city, and village that President Clinton is visiting has its own unique story, its own challenges and its own opportunities. And each has hope that, with a hand up from the global community, they can lift themselves out of poverty and share in the positive benefits of our global interdependence.

    Former Clinton does not need to associate himself with a criminal. Kagame is a criminal who has caused many dealths in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Millions have been killed, raped, and abused...in the Congo. Clinton does not need to be there. It is shameful to support Kagame...
    What is happening in the Congo is attrocious...and in fact right now...as we speak...Clinton knows that...Rwanda is stealing Congolese minerals and selling...this is going to cause a big issue for Rwanda and its citizens in the future. Plese Erin...ask Clinton tough questions...about genocide in the Congo where more than 8 millions have died...where...etc. Thank you.
