Pamela Ann White in Haiti

The MLA Desdunes (riding the Artibonite Department, north of Haiti) is very critical vis-à-vis the U.S. ambassador accredited in Haiti. According to Levaillant Louis-Jeune, Pamela Ann White was elected as the spokesman of the Administration Martelly. "Pamela White serves as a sounding board of the National Palace," insists the parliamentarian.

A number of MPs declared that the former President of the Lower House was organizing to send a letter to President Barack Obama to notify him of the behaviours of its representatives in Haiti. The National Coordinator of INITE said that they give no weight to the recent statements made by the representative of the Republic Starry countries in which electoral competition may take place this year.

Recall that Pamela White had indicated in stride, that his country has a budget of ten million dollars for the organization of partial municipal and local Senate. These statements were held to mark the first anniversary of his taking office at the U.S. Embassy to a group of journalists.

Haiti has 4th largest US embassy

Haiti has 4th largest US embassy

Many people want to know what is one of the biggest US Embassy doing in Haiti. Any way, with the construction of the new complex, Haiti now holds the title for housing the fourth biggest US embassy all over the world. For a poor country with very limited resources, this is very interesting.

So why is there such a large US presence in Haiti with such a huge US embassy? I do not think Haiti represents any major danger to the country. I believe the primary reason is that per the geographical location of Haiti, the US can not afford not to pay close attention to it. There is the drug problem, the problem of illegal migration of Haitians to the US. And also more importantly, the need to provide close supervision to the Haitians.

It seems like we can not do it on our own and the American government knows that. Therefore, you end up with two National palaces in one city, the Haitian national Palace and the US embassy .
