Kinshasa - (Ectoplasm Mess): US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wowed a Congolese press conference on Monday with an impromptu channeling of former husband Vince Foster's advice on a $9bn Chinese copper-for-AIDS deal.
Foster died in mysterious circumstances after Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton persuaded the CIA that gunshot wounds from two, possibly three bullets to the brain showed a clear case of premeditated suicide.
And yesterday members of the Kinshasa Spiritualist VooDoo Association fought back tears as Secretary Clinton, 69, related Foster's advice on the Chinese financial arrangements.
Her message impressed Congolese witch doctors who had brokered the deal minerals using traditional methods such as blood sacrifice rituals involving chickens, snakes and a lot of marijuana.
Chelsea Clinton is also believed to be a dab hand with the ethers.
