How Aid destroyed Haiti before the Earthquake

there is a lot of fingerpointing to blame the poverty and chaos of pre earthquake Haiti, and a lot of the articles have scapegoats (from "God" to "Gaia" to the US to France).

Most of the anti US blame is from leftists sites that only use their usual anti American meme to criticize the US for it's evil capitalists.

But could the poverty be partly caused by the best and the brightest trying to help that poor country?

This thoughtful article at the African Executive says maybe.
