#2452: On Dr. Francois Duvalier : a comment

From: Publisher <publisher@haitiantimes.com>

 I'm completely fascinated with Poincy's take on the Duvalier regime. As a
second generation Haitian-American who never saw an execution in haiti or
anyone getting beaten for that matter. I have one question for Mr. Poincy,
did you work for Duvalier, pere or fils?  How is it that you came to know
the Duvalier so well. My training as a journalist and a student of history
tells me that the type of information you been sharing with this list is
primary source. It means that the author writes with such authority that he
had to live what he's writing about.
