THE HUMANITARIAN MYTH
With U.S. forces obstructing aid and beefing up “security” while Haitians die, no one should accept that the U.S. is motivated by “humanitarianism.”

Comment: Jesse Hagopian
DELAYING AID FOR A PHOTO-OP
Given the examples of Iraq, Afghanistan and now Haiti, it seems like the U.S. knows how to do little other than occupy.

Column: Lance Selfa

THE SIEGE OF HAITI
A ring of U.S. warships on patrol off Haiti’s coast to stop desperate people from trying to flee is a stark symbol of Washington’s attitude toward refugees.

THE MEDIA’S SCAPEGOATING REFLEX
The earthquake that rocked Haiti has brought back hard memories of the racist atmosphere whipped up after the Katrina disaster in New Orleans.
