Re: Outrageous vs. Honduras
by

After I posted the earlier note about Obama’s morally bankrupt policies concerning Honduras, I was notified of this absolutely superb statement from one of the best members of the U.S. Senate, South Carolina’s Jim DeMint, member of the Foreign Relations Committee and chairman of the Senate Steering Committee:

“This administration is playing politics with the lives of ordinary Hondurans in order to return an aspiring dictator to power. They are bullying one of the world’s poorest nations and a longtime ally of the U.S.,” said DeMint.
“In response to my letter last month urging this administration to support the rule of law in Honduras, the State Department said that U.S. ‘policy and strategy for engagement is not based on supporting any particular politician or individual.’ Unfortunately, today’s termination of aid to Honduras proves just the opposite. Cutting aid is a slap in the face to the Honduran people and their brave fight for democracy against a would-be tyrant,” said DeMint. “Forcing Zelaya back on the Honduran people could violate the Honduran Constitution and proves that President Obama’s doctrine of non-intervention only exists when the mood suits him. It is very troubling that Secretary Clinton decision to end all aid to Honduras just moments after meeting with Zelaya.”
