Haitian President Assassinated


Haiti’s President Jovenel Moïse has been killed in an attack on his home in the nation’s capital, according to the country’s interim prime minister.

Claude Joseph said the president’s home in Port-au-Prince was stormed by unidentified armed men at 01:00 local time (05:00 GMT).


First Lady Martine Moïse was also injured in the attack.


Mr Joseph said that “all measures had been taken to guarantee the continuity of the state”.


He has now taken control of the impoverished Caribbean nation, and has urged the public to remain calm.

He called the shooting of the president a “heinous, inhuman and barbaric act”.

I had to search for who Claude Joseph is. University professor to acting president in a year-and-a-half. Curious.

    Security detail was unharmed. Hitters were in and out without a scratch. Haitian law enforcement is arresting dozens with Americans reportedly involved. FBI and DHS are present. Whether that’s the criminal divisions to find the truth or the intelligence divisions to hide it is anyone’s guess.

    This one stinks pretty bad.

    So how exactly was the former Hatian President connected to the Clintons?

    It sound like most of the attackers were from South America and no Hatians were arrested, the Americans may have been dual citizens, that seems just a little strange.
    Who hired them? Who was involved from Haiti, had to be someone rich.
    And what was the motive?
    And good one Jason.
