After the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the Biden administration gave no inclination that it would interfere with military assistance.
This announcement came after Jen Psaki stated that the United States would help in any way possible.
Now, after it was revealed several United States citizens were involved in the assassination plot and the government is in open turmoil, the Biden administration appears to have reversed its position on this front.
While initially making it sound as though sending military assistance was not even a possibility, the White House is now saying this option is “still under review.”
This is more than likely due to the fact that several parties have now claimed to be leading the country.
At first, interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph stated he was in control, but two more parties have since laid claim to leadership.
The country’s entire future is at risk in terms of being a Democratic government, so the United States really has no choice but to intercede to ensure a free and fair election to replace the assassinated leader of the country.
Jen Psaki hinted at this on Monday, stating, “What was not clear is what the future of political leadership looks like in the country.”
This continues to be a developing situation, so we will monitor and update as needed.
