Rebel Leader Claims Military Power in Haiti

Haitian rebel leader Guy Philippe declares himself the country's military chief, a post that ceased to exist when President Jean-Bertrand Aristide disbanded the national army. Citing Haitians' dread of paramilitaries, U.S. officials say many of the rebels are criminals and drug traffickers, and have no place in the country's leadership. NPR's Gerry Hadden reports.
