Re the May 10 article, Haiti travel getting more competitive: Over the last few decades the United States has poured tens of billions of taxpayer dollars into Haiti and continues to do so.
Having been there right after the earthquake, I can tell you that U.S. assets — both military and civilian, equipment and people — outnumbered any other country’s by at least a 50-1 margin. Even today, as I’ve been to Haiti more than two dozen times this year, the airplanes are full of U.S. citizens donating their time and money to build schools, homes and hospitals.
And how does Haiti express its thanks? By naming the newly-renovated airport in Cap-Haitien after the deceased anti-American dictator from Venezuela. I guess no good deed goes unpunished.
