    Haiti has been a screwed up place forever. Aristide Started off as a democratically elected "hope & change" guy who turned out to be a failure. Clinton Sent troops to put him back in power. He had to be run out the country a few years later. Odd question for this section. Yes, he was a crook & crappy leader.
