Mixed views on US military in Haiti

Some welcome troops but others question their role and length of stay.

     

    A month since a 7.0 earthquake devastated Haiti, many Haitians continue to complain their government has not done enough to help them.

    Some have placed their trust in the US military providing aid to them, some even want the Americans to be in charge, instead of their own Haitian government.

    Critics, however, continue to question the role and intended length of stay of the thousands of US soldiers in the area.
