Haitian President Jovenel Moise Assassinated

Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home. Andrew is the host of Heard Tell podcast.

    His wife has succumbed to her wounds as well.

    The assailants claimed to be DEA? I guess? This guy claims to have footage of it?

      Dang, not sure what I’m seeing, but if that’s actual unaltered footage… that’s a decent sized squad. I counted 13 plus three vehicles just through that tiny break.

      I have no idea what motivates Haitian politics; so no speculation on that front. It seems that the succession to the VP has not been impinged… so unless it’s the VP leading it, doesn’t appear to be a coup.

      The DEA stuff is an interesting twist… I doubt it’s the DEA but no idea on who or why they’d use it as a prop.Report

    “That’s a conspiracy theory!”, when said, sounds like it’s disagreeing.

    But, you know, it’s not. Not really.

      Since there were multiple participants in the assassination and they worked together in order to effect a common plan, this was a textbook conspiracy. One of these days we may have solid information on who the conspirators were and with whom they conspired. We don’t yet. It’s entirely possible that some of them were former US law enforcement or military. Those are prime sources for mercenaries and killers for hire. Beyond that, well, it would be irresponsible not to speculate.Report

        By “law enforcement”, we’re not talking about “Baltimore City Police” but “FBI” and “DEA”.

        Good news! The DEA has denied involvement.Report

          The fact that some of these men were federal informants could be proof of U.S. government involvement or it could just be an illustration of how ubiquitous the use of criminal informants is in law enforcement.

          Whitey Bulger was a federal informant, but we would not say that the FBI was secretly running the Irish mob in Boston.Report
