5th Batch of Clinton-Era Papers Are Releasedtags: Clinton
The National Archives unsealed about 2,000 documents from the Clinton administration on Friday, the fifth such release in recent months of memos, transcripts and speeches that had been withheld from public view.
The documents cover subjects including the American response to the genocide in Rwanda, policies toward gay men and lesbians serving in the military, the Oklahoma City bombing and Vice President Al Gore’s 2000 campaign for president.
Notably, the release includes additional documents relating to Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ill-fated attempt as first lady to overhaul the health care system. Mrs. Clinton, who ran for president in 2008, is considering a second attempt in 2016.
The documents were released by the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark.
