For more than fifty years Balaguer wielded power, at times from behind the underbrush and other times front and center. An adviser to strong Men All over the world. Anytime Latin America was on the table Balaguer was consulted. Eisenhower, Kennedy and Nixon All asked him what he knew about the Caribbean and the world. An enigma even today we don’t really know the guy. Back home people are split about his legacy. Secretive and paranoid he left a blank page in his autobiography. Who killed Orlando? We will never know.
