Summary
Through unfettered access to powerbrokers and ordinary citizens, this Wide Angle report covers Haiti's ongoing struggle to craft a truly representative government from a volatile failed state. Butteur Metayer and Guy Philippe-strongmen of the National Front for the Reconstruction of Haiti Party and former rebels who drove Jean-Bertrand Aristide from power in 2004-and three other Haitians express their points of view. An interview between Bill Moyers and James Dobbins, former U.S. Special Envoy to Haiti, concludes the program. Will the Western hemisphere's most impoverished nation finally succeed in creating a stable democracy?
