Where's Aristide? 


From an Australian news source:

US troops 'made Aristide leave'

HAITIAN leader Jean Bertrand Aristide was taken away from his home by US soldiers, it was claimed today.

A man who said he was a caretaker for the now exiled president told France's RTL radio station the troops forced Aristide out.

"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.

"(Aristide) was not happy. He did not want to be taken away. He did not want to leave. He was not able to fight against the Americans."

The RTL journalist who carried out the interview described the man as a "frightened old man, crouched in a corner" who said he was the "caretaker of the residence".

Aristide fled Haiti today in the face of an armed revolt. The United States has ordered Marines to the Caribbean state to help restore order.

Where is Aristide now? He's the only one who can shed the light of truth on this claim.

Where's Bush taken him? Surely not MIAMI...where 200,000 Haitian emigres live...the largest population outside Haiti itself...that would make TOO much sense.

What are the Vegas odds that Aristide will end up in GITMO?
