I don't know any reason why the US Government would have for forcing a coup in Haiti. The Coup is Haiti is causing us to further dilute our troops around the globe which is not good at all.
The only reason for it that I can think of would be to be involved in an official UN military operation to help our credabiltiy.
"The American army came to take him away at two in the morning," the man said.
"The Americans forced him out with weapons.
"It was American soldiers. They came with a helicopter and they took the security guards. "

Now after being "abducted" by the US troops Mr. Aristede somehow had a smuggled cell phone!! American troops must not search the people they kidnap, and they must also leave them unattended so they can conduct their public relations phone calls undisturbed. Through all the harried trouble poor Mr. Aristede put up with he was somehow able to have memorized the phone numbers of an "activist" and two American Congressmembers. Amazing! I wish I would be this composed if I was ever kidnapped! To top it all off Aristede was free enough to give a radio address after arriving in Africa.
