45. Do you contend that you've read and understand my post?
News organizations are clamoring at his door. He's not answering. There are two explanations for that:

1. He's being held by a joint team of French, US and Central African Republic military and intelligence specialists who are carefully screening his contacts with the outside world, allowing him to talk only to such mouthpieces as Anderson Cooper and Charlie Rangel.

2. He doesn't want to talk to the media.

Critical thinking on the cell phone issue-your theory:

Said shadowy French/US/CAR team has kidnapped Aristide from his own palace after a brilliantly engineered coup that has the whole world fooled save DU. After his kidnapping, he's whisked away to a waiting plane. But, somehow, a brave Aristide supporter (on the plane?) slips him a cell phone. (Maybe one of the F/US/CAR operatives went to the bathroom while they were supposed to be watching him.) Aristide quietly slips away and makes speedy, desperate phone calls to Maxine Waters, Charlie Rangel, his lawyer, and an activist before he's discovered and his cell phone is seized. Later, he's...well...somehow able to get another cell phone and makes a secret call to CNN...well, I guess it wasn't secret...but anyway, that cell phone has been seized and Aristide is incommunicado once again!

Or: He doesn't want to talk to the press.
