Haiti – USA : Barack Obama puts Haiti on the “blacklist” (No racial inference here)

The U.S. Government recalls that the President of the United States annually notify the countries that he considers as major drug producers or transit countries of the drug in the world. In a memorandum sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama mentions twenty countries, including 13 Latin American countries, including Haiti.

In the memorandum, President Barack Obama said that Bolivia and Venezuela are two countries that do not respect their commitments in the fight against illicit drugs, although they still benefit from aid programs. The President said that the presence of a country on that list is not necessarily a reflection of the efforts made by te country in anti-drug or level of cooperation with the United States.

Nevertheless, the presence of Haiti on this list does nothing to promote international aid and investment in Haiti who desperately needs.

List of countries involved:
The Afganistan, Bahamas, Bolivia, Burma, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Jamaica, Laos, Mexico, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Panama, Peru, Venezuela, Dominican Republic and Haiti.

  1. I strongly agree with the list however my biggest concern is why even though the U.S. and the United Nations have controlled of Haiti since i can’t remember and Haiti still a transit country for drug to the U.S. It s not easy for me to swallow.

  2. What is the purpose of that list? If that list meant something, why any action is taking to stop the drug activity? It is like a joke.If they know who is doing what, so, they must handle the case differently.

    It likes that they just leave certain government involve in drug trafficking because, the money that are making could fill up some sort of expenses that the parliament in some countries won’t allow, so they leave free.

    Like the example of Haiti, everybody knowa that there are big money dealing illicit drugs out there, however, the authorities are deeply involved in, and, the just leave it pass.

  3. The US knows the drug dealers in Haiti. They don’t do anything to them because of their own dealing reasons.
