ALLEGATIONS OF CONNECTIONS BETWEEN CIA
AND THE CONTRAS IN COCAINE TRAFFICKING
TO THE UNITED STATES
The Haitian military is closely linked to the U.S.military. The high command was trained by the United States military. The CIA has been closely linked with Haitian intelligence, which it helped to set up, including the Drug Enforcement Agency, which is also linked with high Haitian officials. The Haitian elite, the small and super-wealthy sector, is very tightly integrated with the U.S. aid system; it sought during the eighties to use its resources to turn Haiti into an offshore assembly plant using fourteen-cent-an-hour labor, from which wealthy Haitian businessmen prospered enormously.

United States Intervention (Part III)
Haiti, 1987-94: The US supported the Duvalier family dictatorship
for 30 years, then opposed the reformist priest, Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
Meanwhile, the CIA was working intimately with death squads, torturers and
With this as background, the Clinton White House found itself in the
awkward position of having to pretend because of all their rhetoric
about "democracy" that they supported Aristide's return to power in
Haiti after he had been ousted in a 1991 military coup.
After delaying his return for more than two years, Washington finally had
its military restore Aristide to office, but only after obliging the priest
to guarantee that he would not help the poor at the expense of the rich,
and that he would stick closely to free-market economics.
This meant that Haiti would continue to be the assembly plant of the
Western Hemisphere, with its workers receiving literally starvation wages.
HAITI: DRUGS,THUGS, THE C.I.A., AND THE DETERRENCE OF DEMOCRACY
Further, the CIA "tried to intervene in Haiti's election with a covert- action program that would have undercut the political strength" of Aristide. The aborted attempt to influence the 1988 election was authorized by then-President Ronald Reagan and the National Security Council. The program was blocked by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in a rare move.
Next, a confidential Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) report revealed that Haiti is "a major transshipment point for cocaine traffickers" who are funneling drugs from Colombia and the Dominican Republic into the United States. The DEA report also revealed that the drug trafficking, which is bringing one to four tons of cocaine per month into the US, [or 12-48 tons per year] worth $300-$500 million annually, is taking place with "the knowledge and active involvement of high military officials and business elites."
The Cocaine Coup & The CIA Connection
Most Haitians believe that Port-au-Prince police chief Col. Michel Francois and his elder brother Evans currently run the drug trade. Col. Francois has gained that control and become one of Haiti's most powerful men , by recruiting hundreds of police auxiliaries or "attaches", to control and eliminate his rivals. Francois commands his own independent intelligence service that spies on opponents and allies alike, while running a protection racket for local drug traffickers. Michael Ratner, an attorney with the CCR, says Francois and former dictator Prosper Avril are the rule behind the facade of General Cedras.
Francois and his men have a history of involvement in the torture of opponents and death-squad-style murders of Aristide supporters. In one recent incident, attaches mobbed Port-au-Prince City Hall to prevent the capital's mayor, Evans Paul, an Aristide supporter, from entering his offices.
Two Haitians were arrested in Miami suspected of masterminding the freighter operation. One, Emmanuel Thibaud, was allowed to emigrate to Miami after Aristide returned to power. When US police searched his home (January 29th, 2000), "they found documents linking him to Michel Francois," the Haiti Progres (February 16th- 22nd, 2000), a Haitian newspaper published in New York City, reported.
The Miami Herald claimed (February 13th, 2000) that Francois "is 'strongly suspected' to be at or near the top of the Haitian drug consortium."
Explaining why the US recertified Haiti again in 2000, the Haiti Progres wrote: "Because they need the "drug war" to camouflage their real war, which is a war against any people which rejects U.S. hegemony, neoliberal doctrine, and imperialism . . . Like Frankenstein with his monster, the U.S. often has to chase after the very criminals it creates. Just as in the case of Cuba and Nicaragua, the thugs trained and equipped by the Pentagon and CIA go on to form vicious mafias, involved in drug trafficking, assassinations, and money laundering."
Now US government officials can point to these ready-made villians and justify continued funding of an insane War Against Some Drugs: a covert war now against only some drug traffickers.
