I may not have been personally involved in the February 29th, 2004 coup de tat that ousted the then hugely popular, democratically elected (overwhelmingly, 70%) President of Haiti - Jean-Bertrand Aristide - but I know that my government certainly was, alongside the governments of The United States and France.
Its that little bit of early new millennial regime change that nobody likes to talk about.
But we here at GHN couldn't let this anniversary pass without at least some cursory collection of a little relevant documentation.
So here then is the definitive NYT account of the events of that day , as well as Aristide's personal, official contention that he was indeed forced out.
We hope they're all sleeping well.
