Even the Nation concedes that Aristide was hardly a saint and that "Many people died under his government who shouldn't have, and very few indeed are those who have been brought to justice for those crimes." And it simply glosses over the fact that Aristide won the 2000 presidential election with 92% of the vote because the opposition was boycotting the election to protest the blatent vote rigging and count fixing which characterized the 2000 Senate elections.

As the recent event have proven, Aristede had virtually no popular support and none to speak of in the police force which he supposedly controlled.

He will not be missed by Haiti and the only people who seem to lament his passing are rather naive, Naomi Klein, lefties who see any 3rd world dictator, no matter how incompetent, corrupt or murderous as worthy of their protests.
