The six countries on President Clinton’s Africa itinerary were not chosen at random. As the White House has frequently said, most of the countries the President visited have worked closely with the IMF and World Bank on pro-business economic reforms. Most of the countries on his tour are part of a new U.S. military force that the Pentagon is now building in sub-Saharan Africa. Ghana, Uganda, Botswana, and Senegal — where President Clinton heads tomorrow — are all part of the "African Crisis Response Initiative."
