Do we know that forcing people to leave Haiti on un-seaworthy leaky boats and risk their lives on the high seas has always been Lavalas strategy to overthrow governments?.
Did you know that Guantanamo was a Lavalas operation designed to force American intervention in Haiti, overthrow the military government and return Aristide to power?
The late Rev. Gerard Jean Juste was in charge of it he went to the Northwest Haitian coast with pockets full of dollars to Port de Paix and St Louis du Nord and paid those boat owners and canoes to transport thousands of people risking their lives on the high seas and many lost their lives in the process, They simply told them to leave and they will be picked up on the high seas by the US coast guards who will then take them to America. Know also that Aristide was given access to 300 million dollars of frozen Teleco money owed by ATT to operate its government in exile out of Washington DC..
It's with that money that all those operations were financed including paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to Haitian radio hosts in NY Miami and other places in the US with large Haitian populations to organize demonstrations asking Bill Clinton to return Aristide to power until he finally sent troops to do it.
