Right on the money, Greg. 
This sordid affair stinks of moral-debauchery-as-usual for the Haitian political elite. No need 
to go further than your nose on this one. Reaching for some global conspiracy ignores the 
obvious. Murder and mayhem continue to be the coin of Haitian power. 
The  more things change the more they stay the same.

When people talk about recent US involvement in Haiti the boat people issue 
comes up.  "The US doesn't want another boat people situation (or maybe 
more accuratly, doesn't want any more "poor, tired, hungry"), and they want 
stability in the region, SO the US is involved and will or won't allow this 
or that to happen in Haiti."  I've always heard that these are the reasons 
the US gets involved in Haiti.  Is this true?  If not why does the US get 
involved here?   Broaden my perspective.  JM
