"...On Monday, African-American activist Randall Robinson said Aristide had called him on a smuggled cell phone and told him that he did not leave office voluntarily. Robinson said Aristide told him he was "abducted" by U.S. soldiers in "full battle gear" early Sunday and was being held "incommunicado" in the Central African Republic.
The kidnapping accusation also was reported Monday by the office of Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, and Aristide's attorney, Ira Kurzman. Waters' office said she also had spoken with Aristide by phone and Kurzman said the story originated with groundskeepers and housekeepers at Aristide's Haiti home...."
I can't wait to hear Scott McClellan tap dance around this one. Who's next? Musharraf? Chirac?
