67. Was this on C-SPAN?
Was it in the trade papers?


We know why it wasn't covered. Haiti's where the BFEE Air Force stops to refuel.

Haiti's drug money scourge

By Nick Caistor
Regional analyst

Concern over the Aristide government's involvement in illegal drugs trafficking has been cited as one of the main reasons why the US was keen to see the Haitian leader leave.

Haiti's drug links are thought to date back to "Baby Doc" Duvalier.


Another recent US Narcotics Control Report said about 8% of illegal drugs entering the United States had passed through Haiti.

Drug wars

The use of Haiti as a transhipment point for cocaine and other drugs produced in Latin America and destined for US markets is thought to have begun as long ago as the 1980s under "Baby Doc" Duvalier.

When he was ousted, the military groups fighting for control of Haiti were often said to be financed by drugs money.


Where've we seen that smirk before?
