American Ambassador Pamela White does it again! Ambassadors are supposed to be diplomatic capabilities but White seems to have missed the class Diplomacy 101.

She decided to hold a meeting with all of Haiti’s political parties with the exclusion of Lavalas. When I say “all” I mean all political parties with more than 5 members.

To do otherwise would require a meeting in a soccer stadium since Haiti has countless, countless political parties, representing no one, but making a lot of noise as if they had membership lists of thousands.
Lavalas qualifies as having more than 5 members and should have been included. Although International Media representatives continue to call Lavalas “Haiti’s largest political group,” and Aristide “Haiti’s first democratically elected president,” neither of these statements are true.

Lavalas was once Haiti’s largest political party. However, it has now fragmented into a zillion small divisive parts, each at war with the others. Aristide will recognize none and remains the factor dividing this side of the spectrum. In other words, Lavalas represents very little in today’s battle.

Aristide was not “the first Democratically elected President is Haitian history.” In fact, he is one of at least five. Francois Duvalier was democratically elected, with a substantial majority.

Aristide was elected with 67% of 300,000 votes cast in 1990 out of a voter base of 3,000,000. Not really an overwhelming mandate!!

Now, back to our story: Pamela White, Ambassador of the United States, was sitting with a lot of people, from political parties, representing very few real voters, when Lavalas agitators invaded the meeting forcing police intervention.

Luckily, no one was killed.

Through her actions, Ambassador White has given Lavalas another victory. Yet again, they can claim that “Lavalas, the Nation’s largest political group, has been left out of proceedings.”

Time for Ambassador White, Sophia Martelly’s good friend, to pack up and go home.

Des militants politiques ont créé un vacarme à l’intérieur de la salle de conférence où se déroulait la rencontre entre l’ambassadeur américain et des leaders constituant “l’aile dure” de l’opposition au pouvoir en place ..

Selon des informations recueillies auprès de notre envoyé spécial à la rencontre, l’Agronome Jean André Victor a eu le temps d’intervenir. Et, la situation allait se dégénérer au moment où Paul Denis et Mirlande Manigat s’apprêtaient à prendre la parole.

Des militants politiques ont envahi la salle de conférence et scandé des propos hostiles à l’encontre de la communauté internationale, en particulier des Américains.“Aba lokipasyon, peyi a pa pou vann, etc…
” tels ont été les principaux slogans des militants politiques hostiles à cette rencontre.

Par ailleurs, des agents spécialisés de la PNH ont été dépêchés sur les lieux afin de rétablir l’ordre.

  1. Was Pamela White removed from USAID Haiti, in 1987, for having an affair with her chauffeur??

  2. Sophia and Ambassador White have close friendships. This is wonderful for Sophia and very poor for Americans. Scandal must follow, but too late to assist Haitians.

  3. Port-au-Prince (AFP) – US Ambassador to Haiti Pamela White met with opposition leaders seeking an end to the rule of President Michel Martelly.

    The closed-door meeting, arranged at the request of the activists, was held on Tuesday in the party offices of Haiti’s social democrat Fusion party, and lasted nearly one hour.

    “We told Mrs. White in no uncertain terms that the current crisis is one of Haiti’s making, and it is up to Haiti to find a solution,” opposition leader Jean Andre Victor told reporters after the meeting.

    It came just days after thousands of angry protesters fanned out across the country Friday to demand the resignation of the Haitian leader.

    Haiti has been mired in political crisis for three years over the failure to hold long delayed municipal and legislative elections.

    If elections are not held before January 12, the legislature will be automatically dissolved and Martelly can rule by decree.

    Demonstrators for Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe to step down, accusing them of mismanagement.

    Recent talks initiated by the government aimed at resolving the crisis before the end of the year were boycotted by opposition parties.
