DescriptionThis collection consists of documents, letters, talking points, administrative paperwork, email, cables, memoranda, and correspondence to President Clinton concerning the September 17-18, 1994 delegation to Haiti. In September of 1991, Haitian Army General Raoul Cedras and other military leaders successfully led a coup which ousted Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. At the time United States policy was to return a democratically elected government to power and address human rights violations associated with this coup regime. In order to avoid a potential invasion of Haiti in 1994, President Clinton sent a delegation consisting of former President Jimmy Carter, General Colin Powell, and Senator Sam Nunn to the Caribbean country in mid-September of 1994.
