And so the reason for invading Haiti was...?

These aren't final returns, and there's plenty of time for Diebold to reverse the results, but the BBC is reporting that Ex-Aristide ally leads Haiti poll Rene Preval is popular with the poor in Haiti Former president Rene Preval, a one-time ally of ousted leader Jean-Bertrand Aristide, has taken a strong early lead in Haiti's election. Initial results from around the Haitian capital show he has more than 60% of the votes, electoral officials say. So, apparently, we invaded Haiti to relieve them of the government they wanted and have just now restored.
I note that NPR has been very careful to refer to Preval as "former President" Preval, without any hints as to his actual political party.

Anything rather than admit that Aristide was/is popular among the Haitian people.
It's just amazing. For our media, "history" is last week, and "ancient history" is the previous quarter. They have turned America into a screen on which is projected virulent mental illness, replete with Boschian moral landscapes and a perception of fact and reality that heretofore only Dali could adequately portray.
