The Obama administration has insisted that the removal of Manuel Zelaya from office violated Honduran and international law and amounts to a military coup. According to one report this morning, though, the United Nations has reached an entirely different conclusion. Hondudario, translated by Google, reports that the UNs Department of Political Affairs concluded that the removal of Zelaya from office was legal and justified

If this turns out to be true, though, it would come as a shock and embarrassment to the White House. The Law Library of Congress has already reached the same conclusion, a development which the Obama administration has ignored, and which most of the media have studiously avoided mentioning. A UN report backing Roberto Micheletti, the Honduran parliament, and Supreme Court would expose Obamas knee-jerk conclusion and siding with democracy advocates such as the Castro brothers and Hugo Chavez for the amateurish bungling that it was.
I’m sure this will get lots of play in the MSM
A vote is like a rifle; its usefulness depends upon the character of the user. - Theodore Roosevelt
Obama and the MSM have just been slapped in the face.
Obama’s gets another “sharp stick in the eye”, this time from the UN.
At this rate, his eyes will soon resemble a porcupine’s back.
Fro Russian diplomatic snubs to SNL, it looks as though Obama is being seen for what he is.
Author still waiting for official notice. Hopefully there will be no interference from Whitehouse on release.
You don't notice when you are brain dead.
Oh my, two kicks in the azz, three counting the Olympics.
Are we seeing a trend finally?

Or just dumber.
Update: UN says was just a consultant opinion
Update: TrueSlant says the UN has issued a statement explaining that they have not yet taken a position, and that this was an opinion from a DPA consulting firm:

The Department of Political Affairs routinely receives reports and analyses of this type from consultants, academics and other experts. But its views are strictly in line with that outlined in the General Assembly Resolution. Perhaps the UN would release the consultant report to see how it matches with the Congressional finding.
Probably does not want to embarrass a Nobel Peace Prize Winner
The Nobel Pi** Prize winner got it WRONG. He supported Chavez’s military coup AGAINST Honduras, our ally.
