Sadly, the pressure from Washington must have gotten to them.
A report out of Tegucigalpa, this morning:
Honduran negotiators have reached agreement on ending a political crisis triggered by President Manuel Zelaya’s ouster in a June coup.
”We have agreed in a document on point No. 6, which relates to the restitution of the powers of state to where they were before June 28, 2009,” Mr Zelaya’s representative said.
This of course implies that Chavez acolyte, Zelaya would be returned to power for a short period until the a new administration is installed next January after the Nov. 29 election. How much mischief he could engage in before the election is anyone’s guess.
Neither Zelaya or interim President Roberto Micheletti are on the ballot.
It appears that the initial report of Zelaya’s reinstatement was inaccurate:
The latest from Gateway Pundit:
The latest speculation comes from my sources inside the Micheletti government.
President Micheletti will step down and may be moved to a position connected to the Honduran Supreme Court.
Former President Manuel Zelaya will be exiled to Spain. If he comes back to Honduras he will be charged for his many crimes discovered by the current government after Zelaya was ousted for circumventing the Honduran Constitution.
(I’ve been wondering the same thing)…
It’s not just that he has adopted a policy that was unthinkable for most of America’s history. There is something far more striking, far more telling and far more alarming: in the current Honduran situation, Zelaya is precisely the man the Soviet Union — that evil empire — would have sided with.
Now I want you to let that sink in for a moment . . . .
This reality merely illustrates the obvious in an emotionally gripping way. While Reagan opposed Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega by funding his anti-communist opponents, Obama sides with a reinvented Ortega in supporting Zelaya. In doing so, he also lines up with unrepentant communists, either in name or spirit, such as Chavez and Fidel Castro. Fine company you keep there, Mr. Obama.
