Ex-Haitian President Aristide(A.) has said he was ousted, and in a sense kidnapped, but not kidnapped.
I believe this choice was presented to A.by the Rebels (R.) like this...
R. The longer you stay in power, the long these riots will continue, if you leave, we will stop.
(R. philosophy says leaders fight to the end)
(A. knows the Americans (US AID, NED, IRI) wanted him overthrown, and that now these same forces were before him)
A. Rather than have my country destroyed by you, whose budget exceeds that of my whole nation, I will leave.
