Special envoy Bill Clinton

Zac - July 8 2009, 3:23 PM

A lot of people are so excited about Bill Clinton going to Haiti; it's as if they think he's going to solve all of Haiti's problems.

As an American citizen I have great respect and admiration for Bill Clinton I think he was an excellent president.

Granted I was young and I didn't use to follow politics back then, nevertheless he did an excellent job.

When it comes to American politics I trust him to do what's best for America, however as someone who was born in Haiti I am extremely skeptical.

To the matters of Haiti he's a foreigner and my attitude is let's wait and see. He may not be the savior that some people are making him out to be.

I firmly believe that it's up to us Haitians to come together and develop our country, I doubt a foreigner is going to do it for us. If our own leaders don't care I don't see why a foreigner would.

We have invested interests in Haiti a foreigner doesn't. At the end of the day I think it all comes down to invested interests.
