Baby Doc Duvalier back in Haiti…

No, really, the ex-dictator is back. Maybe he’s hoping to steal some more, only this time there’s no Haitian money to take.
Perhaps from the international aid to Haiti? Negotiate a deal for a U.S. air base perhaps? Of course in the middle of a rigged election where, just like in Afghanistan and Iraq, there are U.S. soldiers at the polls with machine guns to make sure nobody votes for an unapproved candidate. keep order.
And what of his private goon-squad “police” Les Tontons Macoutes? (French for eater of fools, a boogieman figure)

And the announcement that Wikileaks is about to receive Swiss Bank records, a favorite place for Corporate Dictators, such as the Duvaliers, Cheneys and Bushes to stash stolen assets.

Lewis Lucke, a 27-year veteran of the U.S. Agency for International Development (US AID) was named U.S. special coordinator for relief and reconstruction after the earthquake. He worked this job for a few months, then immediately moved to the private sector, where he could sell his contacts and connections to the highest bidder. He quickly got a $30,000-a-month (plus bonuses) contract with the Haiti Recovery Group (HRG).

HRG had been founded by Ashbritt, Inc., a Florida-based contractor who had received acres of bad press for their post-Katrina contracting. Ashbritt’s partner in HRG is Gilbert Bigio, a wealthy Haitian businessman with close ties to the Israeli military. Bigio made a fortune during the corrupt Duvalier regime, and was a supporter of the right wing coup against Haitian president Aristide.

Gee, what an amazing coincidence, “Aid” profiteers in Haiti getting huge contracts, guarded by U.S. Military and….
With ties to the Duvaliers. One of whom just flew home, to pick up the pieces of his own profiteering business.
After bankrupting the People of the nation he claims to love, first by stealing all the assets of the country, then leaving the PEOPLE of Haiti under harsh economic sanctions set to be in place until They paid HIS bills,

Brought them down to such a level of poverty, while he and his piglets were living the high-life in France, that a relatively minor earthquake had and still has the potential to destroy them completely.
What a true Patriot this fellow must be!
