In an article entitled, "Wyclef Jean Voices Support For Haitian Rebels", MTV's Gideon Yago wrote, "Wyclef Jean voiced his support for Haitian rebels on Wednesday, calling on embattled Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide to step down and telling his fans in Haiti to 'keep their head up' as the country braces itself for possible civil war." See this website http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1485326/20040225/jean_wyclef.jhtml?headlines=true The rebel death squads that invaded Haiti were responsible for the deaths of thousands of Haitians. Here is the revealing Miami University human rights study that Wyclef does not want you to read. http://www.law.miami.edu/cshr/CSHR_Report_02082005_v2.pdf

Referring to the gangsters in Gonaives, the former military and the former death squads trained by the CIA, MTV quotes Wyclef as stating, "I don't consider those people rebels. It's people standing up for their rights. It's not like these people just appeared out of nowhere and said, 'Let's cause some trouble.' I think it's just built up frustration, anger, hunger, depression." Wyclef's uncle is Raymond Joseph, the highest-ranking official abroad representing the U.S.-installed government in Haiti. He is the un-elected government's representative in Washington. Wyclef's uncle, who he has often praised, is responsible for fomenting outrageous lies about Aristide and members the Lavalas political party that has contributed to the current climate of witch-hunts, arbitrary arrests and murders in Haiti today. Wyclef's uncle is also the co-publisher of Haiti Observateur, a right-wing rag that has been an apologist for the killers in the Haitian military going back as far as the brutal coup against Aristide in 1991.
