Haitian National Police open fire on a peaceful lavalas demonstration calling for the return of Jean Bertrand Aristide. We’ll feature an eye witness account of the melee. Also, activists worry for the safety of the Haitian prime minister Evan Neptune, who’s where abouts are unclear at this time. We’ll take a look at the unraveling situation in the middle east – where Syria hands over the half brother of Saddam Hussein and the Lebanese government resigns. And Father Roy Bugois talks about John Negraponte and the training of death squads by the U.S. Military. And of course the Knight report.
