(Worthy News) – A retired Marine Corps general who once led U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan and later publicly backed Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is facing scrutiny over allegations that he illegally lobbied government officials on behalf of the Persian Gulf nation of Qatar.

Olson, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Arab Emirates and Pakistan. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
