  • Carter Negotiates Clinton's ReturntoPower in Haiti

    (2004-03-02) -- Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has begun top-secret negotiations with Haitian Interim President Boniface Alexandre to return Bill Clinton to power in the island republic.

    Mr. Clinton, a former U.S. president in his own right, ruled Haiti for several years in the mid-1990s. Mr Carter will reportedly tell the Haitian leader that Mr. Clinton has vowed to rent office space in a "predominantly African-Haitian" area in Port-au-Prince, and to bring a McDonald's restaurant franchise to the neighborhood to boost the economy.

    In 1994, Mr. Clinton commanded a military operation which landed Jimmy Carter on the island for so-called "negotiations" with the military ruler Raoul Cedras. Meanwhile, Mr. Clinton ordered five dozen military aircraft toward Haiti as the vanguard of an invasion force. Mr. Cedras capitulated. The planes turned back and a 15,000-person American military occupation force, under Mr. Clinton's leadership, soon took over the country.

    Dubbed Operation Restore Freedom, the maneuver led to the re-installation of then-and-again exiled President Jean-Bertrand Aristide as Mr. Clinton's steward. Considered one of the major triumphs of the Clinton administration, America's $2 billion investment in Haiti led to a revival of democracy and capitalism, reducing the Haitian unemployment rate to only 66 percent.

    Mr. Aristide is now held hostage by U.S. forces in the Central African Republic, according to itinerant international statesman the Rev. Jesse Jackson. The kidnappers are demanding an end to the bloodshed in Haiti as they torture Mr. Aristide by sticking long pins into voodoo dolls made in his image.

        Kidding. I was just thinking it would be funny for scrapple or the Onion to run that true story as satire.
