    New revelations from WikiLeaks show how the US micromanaged Haiti's economy and politics to align it to US interests.

    According to the cables, the Obama administration apparently sought to limit the minimum wage for Haitian textile workers.

    They also show that the US government backed Haiti's presidential poll - despite reservations over a ban on the country's largest political party.
