U.S. blasts ousted Honduran for "foolish" return
Reuters ^ | Sept. 28, 2009

Posted on 09/28/2009 11:16:23 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States blasted ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya for his "irresponsible and foolish" return from exile before a settlement was reached in the Central American country's political crisis.

At an emergency meeting of the Organization of American States to discuss the Honduran face-off, Lewis Anselem, the U.S. ambassador to the OAS, also criticized Honduras' de facto government for its "deplorable" action in barring entry of an OAS mission and declaring a state of siege on Sunday.

Anselem also criticized Zelaya for fueling violence by slipping back into Honduras last week and holing up in the Brazilian Embassy, from where he has called on his supporters to take to the streets.

"The return of Zelaya absent an agreement is irresponsible and foolish ... He should cease and desist from making wild allegations and from acting as though he were starring in an old movie," Anselm said.

Another flip-flop. He only did it because he was given a sense of support by the administration.

“Foolish” because it didn’t go under the radar in the way 0bama and his minions had hoped it would.

“Who cares about Honduras anyway?” they said to themselves.

He still thinks nobody is watching his actions. He thinks we’re all just listening to his words.

He’s a jackass.

A settlement has already been reached, Bozo, that settlement being the legal president of Honduras is in power right now and the criminal that tried to take over the government and trash the constitution is trapped in the Brazilian embassy.

The only reason Bozo is doing this now is because of the report that the Library of Congress released and how many people in the states are upset about him standing behind a dictator and criminal. Then he only chastises him for going back "too soon".

Honduras has obviously gained the upper hand in this.

While they’re at it, they should make a bid for the Olympics.

There is a typo in the article. It should say:

At an emergency meeting of the Organization of American States to discuss the Honduran face-off, Lewis Anselem, the soon-to-be recalled U.S. ambassador to the OAS...

Anyone want to start a pool on the date?

I've got dibs on Oct 9...

I hope its a prelude to Zelaya going under a headstone. He had a chance to just walk away. He chose to come back and try to start a revolution. That needs to have consequences if Honduras is to survive. Just like Saddam Hussein they need to be rid of Zelaya in a permanent manner otherwise he will be a constant threat and guerrilla leader.

What? A settlement was reached way back in June - Zelaya is O-U-T out.

Could the State Department be getting a clue?

They must know they jumped the gun by calling the constitutional removal of Zelaya a “coup.” Now they are starting to backtrack.

"The return of Zelaya absent an agreement is irresponsible and foolish ... "

The State Department representative is correct; Mr. Zelaya is attempting to interfere with the elections that are only eight weeks away.

From the article:

“The return of Zelaya absent an agreement is irresponsible and foolish ... He should cease and desist from making wild allegations and from acting as though he were starring in an old movie,” Anselm said.

Anselem urged the de facto government to handle security with “restraint and caution” and called on Zelaya to “exercise leadership” and urge his supporters to express their views peacefully.
++++++++++++++

Wow, now bammy’s admin wants them to be ‘peaceful’ after this joker went back into the country and started to agitate. Wait, I thought he was legit and you’re calling on him to be ‘peaceful?’

Come on bammy, your little flip flopping and your little socialist friend like Zelaya and Chavez STINK TO HIGH HEAVEN.

Right. And it’s also ‘oki-doki’ that the US is meddling with the Hondurans ability to defend their OWN CONSTITUTION. Of course we know what bammy thinks of and does to the US Constitution...so perhaps we here on this board are not shocked..

""......the soon-to-be-recalled ambassador......."

Never fear....the Obama-appointed ambassador would't blow his nose without the One's explicit knowledge and permission. Nor would Hillary, who works for Obama in a master/dog relationship and who sold what's left of her dark soul to stay in the limelight for a run against Himself later.

The ambassador will NOT be recalled, although he may be thrown under the bus later after things calm down in Honduras.

I hear a new Obamabus is on order because there are so many bodies under the current one that the Department of Streets and Sanitation has ordered it towed away as a pernicious health hazard.

Huh? Did ostammer switch sides in the middle of the night? Or did he figure out that he’s on the wrong side of this, that it’s harming him politically, and therefore decided to use the whole Brazilian embassy thing as cover to explain the switch?

Back in the Contras day “The Goose” was the HQ for all kinds of intrigue. Honduras was a wonderful ally of our country. Too bad for them they served a Republican president (Reagan). Obama is now viciously exacting revenge and pay-back on all such countries (e.g. Poland, UK, Israel, Georgia, etc)

First, the State Department Legal Office knew damned well that the steps taken to oust Zalaya were legal. Second, the US Embassy in Tegucigalpa reported that the move was legal, and when it reported that Zelaya’s return could spark a civil war which would then be blamed on the United States, Obama and his minions got cold feet. Now Hillary is trying to extract the State Department from a very sticky situation.

Let's see, what Honduras does in accordance with its own Constitution has next to zero impact on the United States or our interests yet we continue to meddle in Honduran affairs, cut-off aid and make a big deal about restoring this anti-democrat Chavez-wanna-be, Zelaya.

In the meantime, Marxist Chavez cozies up with bad-actors like Iran and Libya, threatens intervention in Honduras and continues to suppress democracy and press freedom in Venezuala, our Dear Leader can find nary a word of criticism of Hugo to pass from his lips.

The word is that he got into Honduras via the US Air Base there, without going through imigration or customs.

I guess for some reason the government of the USA has decided to let him hang.Deals have been made, stabbing in the backs have occurred.

Why did the USA help him in there in the first place?

Talk about a 180 degree shift. Another flip flop. Obama seems plagued with flip flops.

Hehas no business there, and stands to die. Is that why the USA is bailing out of this no win situation?

Ludicrous.
