Why Do American Plans for Haiti Keep Failing?

The President Ponders the Question


Haiti’s poverty and chaos has been shaped by Washington for many decades.

If the book about American plans and interventions in Haiti is ever written it will be a very big book indeed. The relationship between these two nations – one immensely large and powerful, the other tiny and weak – has been fraught with misery for over a century.

Haiti seems a nation that can never be left alone or find its own feet. Like Afghanistan, if outsiders simply left these places alone and let them sort out their own affairs, the life of ordinary people would be much improved in the long run.

It is a hard lesson to learn for everyone.
