Obama Administration Wants South Africa To Delay Aristide's Return to Haiti

STOP Aristide, The U.S. says... President Aristide's return to Haiti BEFORE the election is meeting some unexpected delays. The United States literally asked South Africa to delay his departure.

President Aristide Crying - Gade Aristide k-ap Kriye

It is true that Aristide wants to return to Haiti as a private citizen but the fact still remains... He is a former head of state and a complicated figure in Haitian politics. and the U.S. fears his return may mess up the elections.

Reuters reports...

"The Obama administration said Monday that the former Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide should refrain from returning to Haiti before the presidential runoff election on Sunday...."

U.S. State Department spokesman, Mark Toner, says...

Mr. Aristide has the right to return to Haiti but doing so this week "can only be seen as a conscious choice to impact Haiti's elections."

A delay, Mr. Toner said, would "permit the Haitian people to cast their ballots in a peaceful atmosphere."

Aristide's Lawyer, ira Kuszban, says...

"The United States should leave that decision to the democratically elected government instead of seeking to dictate the terms under which a Haitian citizen may return to his country."


What do you say?

Do you think the U.S. is right for stepping in OR...
Do you believe the Obama Administration is sticking their nose in our business?

The statement of Obama's administration about the return of ex president aristide to delay it, is speech, nothing else.This has a great diplomatic dimension to consider.

Si Aristide vle retounin en Haiti avek yon bon intansion pou-l al ede vreman, delay his return shouldn't be a problem for him.

he can return any time after the election and still can help the country if he wants to. I don't see any problem with that. Now if he insist to go back before the election now everyone can see that he is after something and they sould keep him where he is now for ever. (Word
