The enemy of my friend is my friend says Obama on Honduras
By Humberto Fontova
"Obama doesn't know what he's doing!" snapped Honduran foreign minister Enrique Ortez this July, 4. "He doesn't know anything about anything!" continued Ortez. "He probably can't even find Tegucigalpa on a map."
The U.S. was then (as now) denouncing the democratic Honduran government's actions to uphold their constitution and thwart a Chavez/Castro satrap hell-bent on converting their nation into a client narco-state for Hugo Chavez. Honduras' Supreme Court voted unanimously to oust Zelaya, and her legislature voted the 125- 5 for same. The five contrarian legislators belong to Honduras' Communist party, long known for dutifully carrying water for papa Fidel.
The Honduran minister, Mr Ortez, knowing full-well what had been at stake, and knowing full-well the meticulously legal procedure his countrymen had followed -- and how they'd acted in the nick of time to save both his nation's and the U.S.' interests by ousting Zelaya -- was blowing his cool, quite understandably, if a bit undiplomatically.
