Well, Michael, I honestly do not know whether it ever was part of the mission of BAI/IJDH to criticize the Aristide government. We would have to review their mission statement and see how faithful they have been to it. BAI/IJDH has stock in my eyes for their well-publicized actions: the various tria...
