But why should we care? Because H.R. 611 would send millions of dollars in taxpayer money into the pocket of the regime of Gerard Latortue, the man who assumed the title of "Interim President" after Bush helped orchestrate the kidnapping and removal of Aristide in February 2004. And even now, Latortue's police force is carrying out a reign of terror in many of Haiti's poorest neighborhoods, working to eliminate many of Aristide's most loyal supporters.
No doubt, American's will want to know that their Congressmen want to send their tax dollars to help prop up this guy.
