Date of Update
March 14, 2004
The U.S. appears to have helped in the overthrow of Haiti's President, Jean-Bertrand Aristide. While a lot of media reporting claimed he fled, Aristide and witnesses say U.S. marines forced Aristide to leave. The page on Haiti has been updated with more information about Haiti's long history (including colonial, slavery, 20th century occupation) as well as information about the recent uprising and overthrow of President Aristide.
The U.S. has been involved in supporting opposition groups to overthrow Venezuela's Hugo Chavez. In the April 2002 coup which just lasted about three days, the democratically elected Chavez was replaced by a military dictatorship, though he eventually managed to regain power. More information has come to surface about the long-suspected secret involvement of the U.S. in supporting opposition groups to Chavez. Additional updates on media reporting have also been added.
The legal justification for the war on Iraq has once again come under scrutiny. The Iraq section has been updated. Updates are around issues surrounding the legal justifications for war and also the geopolitics and neo-conservative agenda.
