What’s Up, Baby Doc?

Not that I’ve spent too much time pondering it, but I still haven’t figured out quite what Baby Doc was thinking by going back to Haiti

AFP – Haitian prosecutors on Tuesday slapped a slew of corruption charges on Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier, less than 48 hours after the former dictator’s unexpected return to his homeland.

Duvalier stands accused of corruption, theft and misappropriation of funds related to the siphoning off of hundreds of millions of dollars during a 1971-1986 rule allegedly marked by widespread human rights abuses.

Did he think he’d be welcomed home like some returning hero? He’s never been known as the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    Unless the French hinted that he must leave, in light of the upcoming legal action by the Swiss, I can’t imagine what the hey his reason could be for returning.

  2. His reason stems from his belief that he is in fact, a savior to that nation. He has always believed himself to be above mere mortal status.
