Unamerican United States versus Honduras

The Hondurans did not engage in a military coup, rather its military acted to prevent a coup by then-sitting-President Manuel Zelaya who attempted to eliminate term limits, violate the Honduran constitution, and stay in power. The U.S. State Department, or its staff, in turn, has
recommended that the ouster of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya be declared a "military coup," a U.S. official said on Thursday, a step that could cut off as much as $150 million in U.S. funding to the impoverished Central American nation... Washington has already suspended about $18 million aid to Honduras following the June 28 coup and this would be formally cut if the determination is made because of a U.S. law barring aid "to the government of any country whose duly elected head of government is deposed by military coup or decree."
I think our own government officials need a civics lesson as to what "duly elected" means. Anyway so far in this episode of world history President Obama has taken the side of the anti-constitutional Honduran President and not the innocent Hondurans. So we as a nation stands in the way of freedom.

I can see where this is going.
