Was Bill Clinton lying or is he dumber than we thought? You decide.
Haiti has been chaos since it won independence centuries ago. Multiple interventions by the U.S. have not changed anything. In 1994 the Clinton administration intervened militarily to reinstate a violent demagogue as Haiti’s president. A decade later the Bush administration intervened militarily to remove him.
Yet Bill Clinton professes himself to be shocked, shocked that Haiti is a mess!
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton said on Wednesday a lack of cooperation between Haitian politicians, aid groups and business leaders was hurting efforts to help the impoverished Caribbean nation.
Clinton, on his first visit since being named U.N. special envoy to Haiti, said he was optimistic about its future but surprised by the continuing divide between the private and public sectors and the nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) operating in Haiti.
“The most surprising thing to me … is how little the investor community, all the elements of the government, including the legislative branch and the NGO community seem to have taught and absorbed each others’ lessons,” Clinton told reporters at the end of a two-day fact-finding mission.
So which is it, liar or fool?
