Bar-Ilan University awarded an honorary doctorate to billionaire Marc Rich, 72, who was pardoned of tax evasion by Pres. Clinton in 2001 and who founded an oil-trading firm under investigation for dealings with Saddam Hussein. The university conferred the degree in recognition of the financier's contributions to Israel and the university's research programs.
