Bella Stumbo’s superb series on Haiti pointed up as well as anything I have read in the past five years the utter moral bankruptcy and hypocrisy of the Reagan Administration’s foreign policy.
One particularly telling report in the series was that on the night of Ronald Reagan’s election, “members of both the Haitian governing and business elites celebrated all over the city. For now, in the White House, both sectors have at last found a friend.”
An American President should be mortified to be considered the “friend” of the scabrous, greedy pack of jackals described by Stumbo. Alas, Reagan, simple-minded dolt that he is, doesn’t possess the moral or intellectual depth for such righteous revulsion.
