I'm astonished. "UN troops"? From which countries? This is unbelievably horrible.
What we found actually when we went into the community the day after the operation was widespread evidence that the troops had carried out a massacre. We found homes, which when we say homes, we are talking basically shacks of wood and tin, in many cases, riddled with machine gun blasts as well as tank fire. The holes in a lot of these homes were too large just to be bullets. They must have been tank-type shells penetrating the homes. We saw a church and a school completely riddled with machine gun blasts....Then there's a Haitian human rights worker who was actually on the scene when the operation occurred and has video footage that unfortunately we cannot yet release, but there is a plan at some point for that to be released to the public, that shows people being killed during the operation quite graphically.
They describe it as UN forces suppressing Aristide's violent gangs.
What a surprise. CNN is recycling State Department propaganda. I guess those psyops who went to work at CNN stayed on.
The use of heavy machine guns and tank shells in a civilian area would seem to have been sufficient to suggest an alternate explanation to CNN.
