Via the Huffington Post, a review by Georgianne Nienaber of an explosive book by Ricardo Seitenfus, Haiti: Dilemas e Fracassos Internacionais: OAS Insider Details Proposed Coup Against Haiti's Preval and Cholera's 'Genocide by Negligence'. The description of the proposed coup is horrifying but not, somehow, surprising. Neither is the discussion of cholera in Haiti. Excerpt:
Seitenfus says that the United Nations, "especially Edmond Mulet and Ban Ki-moon," denied the UN's "direct and scientifically-verified responsibility for the introduction of the Vibrio cholera into Haiti." As of February 9, 2014, 699,244 people contracted cholera and 8,549 have died.
Seitenfus slams the international community for supporting The UN's "lie" and turning it into strategy. He blames the so-called "Group of Friends of Haiti": Argentina, the Bahamas, Belize, Canada, Chile, the United States, Guatemala, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Venezuela, as well as Germany, France, Spain and Norway, in their roles as Permanent Observers in the OAS as complicit in a "genocide by negligence."
Writing about the corruption of NGOs, Seitenfus accuses the international community of bypassing Haitian institutions and giving preference to Transnational Non-Governmental Organizations (TNGOs). He describes it as an "invasion," that reached staggering levels after the earthquake. U.S.
He charges that the governments of donor states used both private donations and public resources to cover the costs of military interventions in Haiti: "As such, for example, more than $200 million U.S. in private donations from U.S. citizens served to finance the transportation and stay of U.S. soldiers in Haiti soon after the earthquake."
Seitenfus appeared frequently in posts here back in late 2010 when he was fired from his job as OAS special representative in Haiti (here, here, and here). I will try to obtain a copy of his book, despite my poor reading knowledge of Portuguese.
