The photo shows the aftermath of the U.S. backed coup in Haiti. Now that the death squads have control over the island, they are free to do their dirty work while U.S. occupation troops look the other way. The photo taken on March 4th. shows two dead men, one with his hands bound behind his back, lying dumped along a road on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince. U.S. occupation troops are stepping up patrols in the capital... giving the coup making thugs free reign in the countryside and small towns. Reuters photo/Daniel Aguilar

State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said that even if the United States "recognized a leader had been elected," he could not rely on U.S. support against an armed revolt if America considered he had misgoverned. "We can't be called upon, expected or required to intervene every time there is violence against a failed leader," Boucher told reporters. "We can't spend our time running around the world and the hemisphere saving people who botched their chance at leadership. I do not think that's something the American government and the American people want, nor do I think it's ultimately good for democracy in the hemisphere," he said. Boucher singled out Venezuela as an example of how Washington has supported democracy in the region. "We've stood up for threats to democracy in Venezuela, whatever side they might be coming from," he said.
