United States Ambassador
Following the recent protest in Haiti, The US embassy in Haiti has contacted the State Department and requested additional security personnel.
We were informed that the request has been granted and as a result, approximately 13 Marines, as well as other security personnel are already heading to Haiti to reinforce the current staff of the US Marines Corps and State Department security personnel already in place there.
The United States Marines are one of the four branches of the United States Armed Forces responsible for conducting amphibious operations with the U.S Navy. On July 28, 1915, when Woodrow Wilson was the U.S President, the United States occupation of Haiti began with the landing of 330 Marines. This July intervention took place following the murder of Haitian dictator President Jean Vilbrun Guillaume. He was killed by some insurgents angered by his political executions of elite opposition. Historically, the first batch of the USS Montana disembarked on the Haitian soil more than one year earlier, on January 27, 1914. The U.S occupation in Haiti ended on August 1, 1934, after President Franklin D. Roosevelt reaffirmed an August 1933 disengagement agreement.
According to former Lower House President, Levaillant Louis-Jeune, Pamela Ann White, the United States Ambassador to Haiti, has become the one-woman representative of all things regarding the National Palace.
Louis-Jeune stated that a group of Minister's of Parliament was contriving to send a letter to the United States President, Barack Obama, informing him of the Haitian Ambassador's less than diplomatic behavior.
Pamela Ann White is widely considered a Martelly Administration spokesperson and as such her credibility suffers. As such, INITE, the National Coordinator, took her late statement about an election this year without weight.
Born in Lewiston Maine, in 1948, Pamela Ann White, US Ambassador stationed in Haiti, spent her formative years in nearby Auburn. She graduated from the Edward Little High School in 1967 and went on to graduate with a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Maine in 1971.
Pamela White was among the three new ambassadors to Haiti along with Peter Klaus from Germany and Maria Barrios from Honduras. Pamela was sworn in as the new US ambassador by president Obama taking over from Kenneth H. Merten, who has to been transferred to Croatia for the same diplomatic post. She was received cordially by Haitian President, Michael Martelly, in a ceremony held on the 3rd of August, 2012.
For a long time, Mrs. Pamela White has been an outstanding US representative in the international Diaspora and she was recently serving as the US ambassador in Gambia before being transferred to Haiti. She was also the Mission Director of the US Agency for International Development in Liberia, where she made invaluable contribution to the project's success.
