"The United States, the European Union and the United Nations decided to support Haiti’s recent presidential and parliamentary elections despite believing that the country’s electoral body, 'almost certainly in conjunction with President Preval,' had 'emasculated the opposition' by unwisely and unjustly excluding the country’s largest party, according to a secret US Embassy cable. The cable was obtained by WikilLeaks and made available to the Haitian newspaper Haiti Liberte, which is collaborating with The Nation on a series of reports on US and UN policy toward the country."
