Haiti: Yeah right - "Haiti's Former President Brings Message of Hope to People"

When possible, I try to publish statements from both sides of an issue - even if it is a load of crap. This press release, falls in that category

Source: Bob Barr, former Member of Congress (1995-2003)

Former Congressman Bob Barr, with Attorneys Ed Marger of Jasper, Georgia and Mike Puglise of Snellville, Georgia, joined former Haitian President Jean-Claude Duvalier in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, as Duvalier issued his first public statement upon returning to Haiti for the first time since he left the country in 1986.

Duvalier explained that the love for his country and the heartbreak he shared with all Haitians over the devastation wrought by last year's massive earthquake overcame the risks he knew he would face by returning to Haiti at this time. He also urged all Haitians, but especially the young people, to take leadership and raise the country from the ashes like a Phoenix.

Duvalier also stated that Barr, Marger and Puglise will be representing him in bringing his message of hope to the world.
