  • Randall Robinson on "An Unbroken Agony: Haiti, from Revolution to the Kidnapping of a President"

    Robnsonr

    TransAfrica founder Randall Robinson chronicles the 2004 U.S.-backed coup that ousted Haiti’s democratically elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Robinson challenges the Bush administration’s claim that the Aristides voluntarily left Haiti, and recalls his trip to the Central African Republic to bring the Aristides back to the Caribbean. He also reveals new details on the U.S.-backed coup militants armed and trained in neighboring Dominican Republic, including the accused drug smuggler Guy Philippe. As the Aristides remain in exile, Randall Robinson joins us in the firehouse studio for the hour to talk about the coup, the history of Haiti and the state of affairs there since the 2004 coup.
