Two years after the Haiti earthquake, Kim Ives offers an exposé of diplomatic cables that reveal U.S. government policies and practices there. Ives, founder of the weekly newspaper Haiti Liberté and a commentator for Democracy Now!, has analyzed internal documents from 2003-10 released by the U.S. Embassy in Haiti and provided to Liberté and The Nation by WikiLeaks—documents that explain the government’s role in the coup against former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, and its plans to profit from disaster.
