ABSTRACT
Questions whether President Bill Clinton is using the drug trade allegedly controlled by henchmen of Haitian strongman Lt. Gen. Raoul Cedras to justify an invasion of the Caribbean nation. Clinton's charges that Haiti had become a transshipment point for narcotics and that this was one more reason why the United States might be forced to mount a military assault; Source at the Drug Enforcement Administration who decried the statement as politically motivated.
