The Carter Center: Follow the Money

[New York Daily News] Lloyd Greif - The Carter Center has prospered over the years as a direct result of Arab largesse. Saudi Arabia has channeled tens of millions of dollars to the Center. In 1993 alone, the late King Fahd gifted $7.6 million, while more recently, the king's nephew, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, donated at least $5 million. Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, monarch of Oman, is another million-dollar-plus backer. In 2001, Carter received the $500,000 Zayed International Prize for the Environment.
