Reply to "Was Aristide Kidnapped."

Why write a letter with nothing more? Why write it in Creole instead of French? Why "so that there will be life and not death" instead of "to spare further bloodshed?" It sounds like it was written by somebody trying hard to sound like a third world foreigner. And would someone motivated by an emotional desire to save face have earlier written a letter for the opposite effect, given that the same stimulus for the motivation to save face existed at the time the letter was written? And finally, the Bush administration does not have any more credibility than Aristide does. If no one other than them saw the letter before its release (if it ever was even released), that's reason enough not to trust it.

I'm not normally much of a conspiracy theorist, but I at least have to wonder about this one. I could be wrong, but I'm not dismissing it.
