I know President Aristide has travelled abroad before, but it would seem
perilous to his future that he can leave and not be overthrown in a coup

 do stand by my comments that I hope other Summit leaders give him a

bring this crisis to an end.  I would hope the Summit leaders would talk
to any leader who is supporting the abuse of human rights and not
upholding the
constitution of his country.
