Today on Flashpoints, we continue our drumbeat coverage of Obama’s illegal war and the situation in Libya, where it is reported that rebels have taken several key townships in an offensive aimed at capturing the capitol of Tripoli. We then devote the rest of the hour to the sixth anniversary of a massacre committed by UN troops in the poor neighborhood of Cite Soleil in Haiti. In doing to we examine one of the greatest human rights cover-ups in the history of the hemisphere.
