Washington’s Cynical Campaign to Keep Aristide in South Africa

With unbounded hypocrisy, the United States shrieks "democracy!" at the world while denying Haitians every political right of citizenship in their own land. Having deposed and kidnapped the popularly elected president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, in 2004, the U.S. now pretends not to be the main party standing in the way of his return from South African exile. But, "if South Africa gave its blessing to an Aristide flight to Haiti, the U.S. would then be forced to abandon the charade and give Aristide a yes or a no, in its own voice".'
