Corruption Is The New Fashion Statement

Originally: How Come Things Never Work in Haiti?Richard A. Morse, 2009-10-07(

I remember when things got difficult in Haiti back in the early
1990's. Haiti's elites had taken over with a brutal coup d'état, and
killing people who spoke out became fashionable. Bill Clinton was then
president of the United States. I remember asking myself, should I keep
speaking out or should I take
the safer route and keep quiet. In the end I decided that I didn't want
to die and have my last thoughts be, "I should have said something."Well,
the same folks who gave us imported rice, imported sugar and
overcrowding (Chicago economics) in Port-au-Prince are back in power
and they're profiting from photo-ops with now-special envoy to the UN
Bill Clinton. It's all a masquerade. The UN, Bill Clinton's employer,
is at the base of the

masquerade.Everyone in Haiti knows
the United Nations is corrupt. The United Nations has endorsed
fraudulent elections. Poor Haitians know it; rich Haitians know it; the
"left" in Haiti knows it; the "right" in Haiti knows it; the opposition
in Haiti knows it; the UN workers know it; the Haitian government knows
it; the Haitian president knows it; the journalist from the New York
Times Magazine knows it; Michelle Montas, spokesperson to the UN, knows
it, and I know it. I said it publicly back in April, I said it publicly
back in May and I said it publicly back in June. The April/June
senatorial elections in Haiti were fraudulent. I said it privately to
Michelle Montas on May 1 at the RAM concert at the Alliance Française
in New York City.

I told Michelle Montas that the Haitian senatorial elections were
fraudulent and the implication that the fraud could expand to Iraq,
Afghanistan, Pakistan and North Korea was too disturbing to keep quiet.
A couple of days ago, the New York Times ran an article that spoke of
the UN firing someone because they were speaking out. This is an
excerpt from the NYT article:

<blockquote dir="ltr" style="margin-right: 0px;">"...The two men
have clashed repeatedly, United Nations officials said, and their
different approaches came to a head over the vote recount after the
Aug. 20 Afghan presidential election. Mr. Galbraith demanded a total
recount, but then left Afghanistan and retreated to his Vermont farm..
Until now, Mr. Ban and others had been saying that Mr. Galbraith was
expected to return to Kabul.

"Reaction to Mr. Galbraith's removal was swift from the campaign of Abdullah Abdullah, the former Afghan foreign minister . . ."</blockquote>I
can't get fired for saying the Haitian elections were fraudulent. I can
get shot, someone around me can get shot, I can have my business run
into the ground. I can have my electric rates and my tax rates get
doubled and tripled. I can have requests for project funding denied;
but I can't get fired.

Bill Clinton is running around Haiti pretending everything is fine;
hanging out with people who are responsible for many of Haiti's
problems and I guess I'm supposed to sit here and be quiet. As I said,
Mr Clinton is enjoying himself with the same families who decided it's
better to import rice and sugar, which in effect, has quadrupled the
population of Port au Prince and is the leading cause of the
destruction of Haitian society.

Well, it's difficult to be quiet, though I try, because in the long
run all this stuff is going to come back and snap us in the butt and
everyone is going to say, "How come things never work in Haiti?" Maybe
Bill Clinton has good intentions, but he also has lousy "on-the-ground
intelligence". Bill Clinton took FRAPH, which was a repressive Haitian
paramilitary force headed by Toto Constant, and he wanted to turn it
into a loyal opposition political party back in 1994!

I don't know if the UN is corrupt from the bottom up or (as a matter
of poli cy) from the top down; but the same corruption seems to be
spreading to other trouble spots around the world.We have
presidential elections coming to Haiti next year. I'm guessing the
winners and the vote counts have already been decided. It would only
make sense. Corruption is the new fashion statement.
