Give Me (and the Haitian People) a Break


Former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide says he’s ready to answer the call of his people. But is anyone calling for him? Let’s put this one in the “Just what we don’t need” file. You remember Aristide, don’t you? He’s the guy that liked punishing political opponents by “necklacing” them with hot rubber tires. What a guy. . . .

Just because he rules because he is a bloodthirsty tyrant does not mean he is excused from doing the duties of a ruler in such situations. I doubt his government has the competence or resources to be useful but if it can it might as well be.
