Ray Mabus and the Haitian dictator

American Thinker Blog quotes from today’s Wall Street Journal in an article that implicates Ray Mabus — foreign policy advisor to Barack Obama, Clinton’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia (glad he took care of those problems), and former Mississippi governor whom Kirk Fordice saved us from — in a telecom deal with other Democrats to rip-off the Haitian people in concert with their strongman dictator Jean Bertrand Aristide. This is from the Wall Street Journal piece:

It took eight years, but on Oct. 8 I finally secured a copy of Fusion Telecommunications’ 1999 contract with the Haitian telephone monopoly Teleco. By law the agreement is a public document but Fusion wouldn’t give it to me until the FCC required them to do so. Now I think I know why.
Fusion is run by former Democratic Party Finance Chairman Marvin Rosen. It no longer does business in Haiti. But when it did, former congressman Joseph P. Kennedy II, a staunch supporter of former Haitian strongman Jean Bertrand Aristide, was on the board. So too was President Bill Clinton’s former aide, Thomas “Mack” McLarty, and former Mississippi Democratic Gov. Ray Mabus. In other words, the Fusion name was synonymous with the Who’s Who of the Democratic Party.
Democrats were important to Aristide. President Clinton used the U.S. military to restore him to power in 1994 after he had been deposed in a coup, in part because he was fond of inciting violence against his political opponents. Upon his return in 1994, Aristide resumed his despotic ways. Haitians begged for U.S. help but their pleas fell on deaf ears. In February 2004, Aristide was finally run out of the country.
