    Ousted Haitian leader Aristide returns from exile
    AP – Haiti's former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide greets supporters as he exits a plane upon arrival to …
    Slideshow:Haiti – 20 mins ago
    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide is criticizing a decision to bar his political party from the country's presidential election.

    Moments after his return from a seven-year exile, Aristide told reporters Friday that the exclusion of his Lavalas party is "the exclusion of the majority."

    Haiti's electoral council barred Lavalas from the elections for technical reasons that its supporters say were bogus. Still, several people affiliated in the past with the now-less prominent Lavalas ran in the first round of the election.

    The second round is Sunday and the U.S. had feared the former president's presence in the country could disrupt the vote.

    THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide returned home from seven years in exile to a celebrity welcome Friday, mobbed by close allies and journalists outside his private plane before being hustled into an airport VIP lounge as crowds of supporters rallied in the streets outside the terminal.

    Great glad he is back

    Now maybe the 2 million Haitians that are here in the DR will go home and rebuild their country!!!!!!!! And take the drugs with them. As he was the one that turned Haiti into a major drug conduit, which transfered to here after he was disposed.

    Sounds great!

    Just one thing, post one article to verify what you say

    and I will stop telling the truth about the Dominican Republic if you stop telling lies about Haiti

    And then the 5 million Dominicans can go back to DR
    and rebuild the economy over there

    so that the islands only claim to fame in the world, will not be

    the number one

    Sex Tourism spot in the world

    And the world famous Dominican drug cartels in NYC and the numbers parlors can take their illegal activities back there as well,
    instead of just sending 3 billion a year plus

    Now about 100 verified articles can be posted from every leading newspaper in the world ,to talk about that

    So just post one about your claim about Aristede, I am sure there must be plenty of Aristede hating blogs out there

    Some times sprurious statements, like convicting someone of a crime bfore they are convicted, are not a waste of time

    they just open a can of worms that leave time ot ook at the worms carefully and where they originate:em16:

    by Michael C. Ruppert

    According to a "law enforcement sensitive" 1997 DEA report entitled "The Dominican Threat - A Strategic Assessment of Dominican Drug Trafficking," Dominican Trafficking Organizations (DTOs) are responsible for as much as one-third of all the cocaine entering the Continental United States. In the same report, DEA estimates total annual U.S. cocaine consumption at close to 500 metric tons (1,100,000 lbs.). The same report also states that, "The only reason the Dominicans do not dominate the U.S. heroin market as well is that South American production is unable to meet U.S. demand." The Dominicans are buying less expensive [than Asian] Colombian heroin and totally control heroin distribution throughout the northeast. [See related story on Colombia this issue]. Piecing together various sections of the report prepared by DEA's National Drug Intelligence Center, it is safe to estimate that 20-25% of all cocaine and heroin revenues inside the U.S. are controlled by Dominicans. The smuggling is centered around New York City, Philadelphia and, to a lesser extent, Boston.

    World Perspective | CARIBBEANOctober 30, 1998|MARK FINEMAN | TIMES STAFF WRITER
    Nearly a year ago, Haitian public security chief Robert Manuel warned of "macabre plots" by international drug cartels to infiltrate his impoverished nation, co-opt its politicians, corrupt its nascent U.S.-built police force and foment disorder.

    The occasion: A large shipment of Colombian cocaine destined for the United States had been abandoned in the village of Aquin on Haiti's south coast. Peasants began to divide the spoils. The police arrived, beat several villagers and seized the cocaine--which then simply vanished. Twenty police officers were later arrested.

    It was an incident that has been repeated since with disturbing frequency, according to Haitian police Inspector General Eucher Luc Joseph, who concluded at the time that the sudden flood of cocaine into this strategic Caribbean nation had become a "gangrene" in society and created a battleground within the police force.

    Today, by most accounts, the powerful cartels appear to be winning the drug war here in the Western Hemisphere's poorest and most vulnerable nation, threatening a multibillion-dollar international effort to build a modern, democratic state.

    As Colombia's cocaine producers increasingly turn to what the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration calls "a labyrinth of smuggling routes throughout the central Caribbean" to reach U.S. consumers, Haiti has emerged as the path of least resistance.

    "The situation in Haiti is clearly an emergency," U.S. anti-drug czar Gen. Barry R. McCaffrey said during a Caribbean drug-control conference in Miami earlier this month.

    Much of the cocaine reaching the United States through the Caribbean now transits Haiti, according to U.S. law enforcement officials. It lands by sea or air along a 955-mile coastline virtually unpatrolled by the Haitian coast guard, which the U.S. government is still trying to develop.

    Most of the cocaine then moves across Haiti's porous border into the neighboring Dominican Republic, the Caribbean's main staging ground for shipments to the United States. From there, Dominican boats known as yolas run the cocaine by sea to the nearby U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, which is linked by air to more than a dozen U.S. cities

    Four years later, on the eve of Aristide’s negotiated return as Haiti’s elected president, a summary of a confidential report prepared for Congress and leaked to the media says that corruption levels within the (Haitian military-run) narcotics service are substantial enough to hamper any significant investigation attempting to dismantle a Colombian organization in Haiti. The report says that more than 1,000 Colombians live in Haiti using forged passports of the neighboring Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic leader Joaquin Balaguer opposes the UN blockade of Haiti, and maintains close ties with the Haitian military. The road connecting Port-au-Prince with the border town of Jimini in the Dominican Republic is the only well paved route in Haiti, and serves as the lifeline for the regime. Despite the embargo and U.S. naval blockade of Haiti, the road to the Dominican Republic has become not only the route for oil tanker trucks breaking the embargo, but the major route for cocaine shipments as well.
    Fernando Burgos Martinez, a Colombian national with major business interests in Haiti, has been named in congressional records as a major cocaine trafficker, brazen enough to do business with other Colombian drug dealers on his home telephone. One DEA source says both the U.S. embassy and Haitian government have been pressed unsuccessfully to authorize wiretaps, despite DEA allegations that Martinez has been involved in every major drug shipment to Haiti since 1987.
