President Obama Appoints Rajiv Shah The New Head Of USAID.

The deployment of foreign aid is a key component to the administrations security and diplomatic foreign strategy and Dr. Rajiv Shah seems capable of delivering. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said "he has a record of delivering results in both the private and public sectors...and developing innovative solutions in global health, agriculture and financial services for the poor." Dr. Shah fills the 10 month long position void and the administration is hopeful of a quick Senate approval.
