2. More evidence against the Bush Organized Crime Family...
... Smirk's policy is the same as his Poppy's. When Aristide was dumped by the generals in the early 1990s, Bush Sr. didn't lift a finger to help the first democratically elected Haitian president in 75 years (IIRC).

Aristide came to speak before the Cranbrook Peace Foundation (near Detroit) around that time. I heard Aristide say that all Bush had to do was pick up a phone and the generals would quit. But, Bush didn't.

Why? Aristide said the generals were backed by the 1-percent of Haitians who own 99-percent of Haiti. They also are the ones handling the drug trade, which brings millions (if not billions) in revenue to ... the top 1-percent of Haiti.

Despite Jesse Helm's best efforts to smear Aristide, new President Clinton eventually helped restore the guy to office. So, who's side is Bush Jr. on?

PS: A hearty welcome to DU, Tim4319! Down with the BFEE!
