followed Aristide's landslide victory, albeit nine months later.


A bunch of soldiers in the capital overthrowing the government, which is 
what happened in September 1991, isn't "a nationwide insurrection."  
It's a coup d'état.

A bunch of squabbling, virtually unarmed opposition politicians can't 
mount "a nationwide insurrection."  Even if it was paid for by the MREs
or even the CIA, the utter disunity and lack of military training would 
easily put paid to it, just like in all those farcical and incompetent 
exile invasions under the Duvaliers.

This is the dishonesty of Haiti Progrès and its friends.
