A recent State Department bulletin blames "Aristide thugs" for "the violence in Port-au-Prince, Haiti that began on Sept. 30."
The United States is blaming the victim. Haitian police target supporters of exiled President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, ransacking homes and churches, making arbitrary arrests and taking part in extra-judicial killings. Former military men and death squad members control parts of Haiti. U.N. "peacekeepers" stand by passively while chaos reigns and in some cases actively work with ex-military personnel.
