In the midst of the revolutionary mid-east situations Hillary Clinton made a special fast visit to Haiti. No not because of the return of "Baby Doc" Duvalliere, the just as vicious son of Papa-Doc Duvalliere,the iron-handed Haitian dictator who the US supported for decades, but because of the threatened return from exile in Madagscar of the former elected President Aristeides, who had the overwhelming support of the Haitian poor.
"Baby-Doc" was forced out by the Haitian people and lived a high life in France with the $millions he stole from the Haitian people.
Aristeides was forced onto a plane and exile by the US, it's complaisant Canadian junior partner, and France, who in concert with the US despoiled Haiti. Aristeides was not welcomed to France and was sent to Madagascar. He still has immense popularity among the impoverished, who make up the majority of the Haitian population.
The Haitian people have yet another hurricane and earthquake ahead.
