Getting Haiti Right This Time: The U.S. and the Coup

really liked it 4.00  ·  Rating details ·  61 ratings  ·  4 reviews
Did Aristide leave Haiti voluntarily? Why did the U.S. want him out? What does the regime change mean for the health of Haitians? Did Aristide “overstay his welcome,” in the words of Vice President Dick Cheney, who never had a welcome in his own country to overstay?

This courageous book is an Amazing act of truth to power telling.
A fascinating collection of witnesses, analysts and direct accounts from the Haitian president himself, his body guard, his spouse. Gripping, horrifying. It is profoundly disturbing to see you tax $s used like that to further... whose agenda exactly?...an important must read.
