Haiti remains a nation in ruins, six months after one of the worldâ€™s worst natural disasters killed more than 300,000 people. Thousands of bodies still lay under rubble. We begin todayâ€™s show in Port-Au-Prince outside what remains of the Montana Hotel where some 200 people died in the earthquake. We speak to Patrick Elie, a longtime Haitian democracy activist and Haitiâ€™s former Secretary of State for Public Security. "We are a people who can fend for ourselves," Elie said. "We have a vision of where we want to go so we do need friends but we donâ€™t need people to think for us or to pity us and that is probably this attitude that is playing a part in the aid not being forthcoming."[includes rush transcript]moreless
