Rebels Arrive in Haitian Capital
I am still not sure how I feel about this one. I don’t know enough about Haiti as I would like. I do know that the level of poverty in Haiti sucks and that Aristide has not been able to do anything about it, so this may be what is needed for the people there.
Apparently the leader of the rebel forces has pledged to support the interim President and to support the democratic process there.
Another wrinkle to this story is that U.S. Marines supposedly “kidnapped” President Aristide and flew him out of the country. If so, that was probably the best thing for him, as he would be barbecue by now.
Greeted by hundreds of cheering supporters, heavily armed Haitian rebels drove into Port-au-Prince today, entering the headquarters of the national police, the stronghold of supporters of former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Aristide left Haiti Sunday and is in Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic.
