6635: Karshan/Tipper/Rocks (fwd)
Ms Karshan brings up the same question I am trying to have answered. Was the
Tipper Gore fiasco a way to sabotage an Executive foreign policy from within
the American government or was Aristide letting it be known that he no longer
wanted an American presence in Haiti? He had gotten what he needed from the
Americans and now all deals were off. Both cases can be argued.
P.S. After the invasion, before Aristide came back, the Haitian masses, pep
la, were treating the troops like famous rock stars, waving at the troops and
gathering in groups whenever they stopped along the road, exuberance, love
and joy. After the actual return of Aristide, the writing on the walls said,
"FOK BLAN KITE PEYI A"
A definite change in the atmosphere.
