Former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier quietly left his luxury hotel in Port-au-Prince on Thursday.
Duvalier left through a back entrance, avoiding journalists camped out in from of the Hotel Karibe. He had been staying at the hotel since his surprise arrival in Haiti four days ago after 25 years of exile in France.
Curious, has anyone besides me really looked at Baby Doc Duvalier?
That blank face. Unfocused stare. And someone is always holding on to him. Also, he has not spoke to the media himself. His wife/companion talks for him or reads statements allegedly prepared by him.
There is clearly one or more health issues at play. I was thinking a stroke? But, maybe he is drugged, who really knows?
US aid to Haiti hinges on "credible" elections.
So says Ambassador Susan Rice.
Haiti must have credible elections to maintain international support, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice told the UN on Thursday.
The U.S. representative to the United Nations told the Security Council that the United States welcomes the recommendations made by the Organization of American States, including an OAS call for runoff elections in Haiti.
