#833: Haiti and the Vatican : Lawless comments

From: Robert Lawless <lawless@twsuvm.uc.twsu.edu>

I believe that the Vatican was the only ?state? to recognize the de facto 
regime (of Cédras).  Do they give a rationale?  Does anyone have detailed 
information on the relations between the de facto regime and the 
Vatican?  Did the Vatican give Cédras any sort of aid and support?  What 
was the reaction of the Vatican to the invasion and occupation by the 
U.S.A.-led forces that reinstalled Aristide?  Did the Vatican have any 
official position on the two administrations of Aristide?  I assume that 
they recognized the administration of Aristide (both times) as legitimate.
