"Removal of Zelaya was constitutional": UN

Submitted by Editorial Hond ... on Tue, 13/10/2009 - 18:22.

UN experts concluded that there was no coup in Honduras

The study of the crisis in Honduras coincided with that conducted by the Library of Congress *** The study of the political crisis in Honduras was endorsed with official information received by the UN experts in the country visit last week coincided with the foreign ministers of the OAS. Washington, USA. A study by the Department of Political Affairs of the United Nations Organization (UNO) on the causes of the crisis in Honduras, concluded that the removal of President Manuel Zelaya, "was constitutional under the laws of the country," confirmed officials of that agency.

This version was officially known today by senior UN officials, which also coincides with the study prepared by the Library of Congress, which looked at by his side, the situation that generated and maintained in a political crisis in Honduras.

The document of the study by the Department of Political Affairs of the UN, with other information base (another truth) received at the last visit to Honduras, where it converged with representatives of the Organization of American States (OAS) and took advantage to meet other scenarios that were unclear.

The information on this collegial resolution of these experts, was provided to hondudiario.com, official sources and pressures inferred strategies that promote the former foreign minister Patricia Rhodes and the permanent representative of Venezuela in the Permanent Council to seek more sanctions against Honduras and require the return of former President Zelaya, which warned of "an ultimatum" to this October 15.

"These gentlemen are pressing and have invoked a special assembly to the Security Council, but there has been no response to date, they were awaiting the results of their own studies on the situation in Honduras, which has remained divided Washington "spoke the interviewee.

"The conclusion of the report clearly says that the removal of President Zelaya was constitutional. This confirms that there was no coup and strengthens the position of President Barack Obama, who never rushed to judge the situation in Honduras, as did Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who rushed to condemn the Honduran people, pressed by foreign ministers the OAS, "he said.

The demands of the former chancellor Rhodes in Washington, according to experts, have been grounded in order "to the international community's sanctions against the de facto regime" and further claimed "strong" countries not to recognize the coup government under any circumstances.

"Most of the Member States of the United Nations, after meeting other settings and information now agree that they would not support any resolution of the UN General Assembly to seek penalties for Honduras," summarized by referring to this study by the Department of UN Political Affairs, which concluded that the removal of President Zelaya was constitutional, the same study agrees in most points with the study prepared by the Library of Congress.

Zapatero was well received during the parades of Columbus Day in Spain. They didn’t cared that the kings were present to shout some truths to Z’s friend Zapatero.

This is horse crap. Obama suspended aid to Honduras and pulled the visas of Honduran diplomats in the US. All Obama’s actions were aimed at destabilizing the current government.

The UN actually got something right. I’m amazed. Now I wonder if the Obozo will listen to his good buddies and best friends in the UN (i.e., thugs, thieves, and terrorists) instead of making a stupid fool of himself calling this a “coup.”

Good news but I don't think that obama gets off that easily.

"The conclusion of the report clearly says that the removal of President Zelaya was constitutional. This confirms that there was no coup and strengthens the position of President Barack Obama, who never rushed to judge the situation in Honduras, as did Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who rushed to condemn the Honduran people, pressed by foreign ministers the OAS, "he said.

Obama was as usual hiding behind someone. This time obama was hiding behind Hillary's skirts. (pantsuit)

LOL. Throwing Clinton under the bus as if she had gone rogue. She was just following the orders of the TPOUS.

He didn't repudiate Hitlery's pronouncements, either.

Or, IOW, if he votes “present” long enough, on most issues, sometimes it will seem he wasn't wrong, because it worked out okay in the end.

Not right, but at least not wrong.

What a leader!

Actually, Obama and his gang were the first to refer to it as a coup. Hillary was actually a moderating influence, for about five minutes, and then she clearly got the message about the line she was supposed to follow. And she did.

Hillary is surprisingly lacking in independence. I thought she’d actually try to be a real Secy of State, but she clearly regards herself as simply Bambi’s enforcer. Or Rahm Emmanuel and David Axelrod’s enforcer, at least. In any case, after putting his foot in it a few times, then Bambi left it to others to support Zelaya because it was getting too embarrassing.

Zapatero got booed at the military parade on Oct 12 (Spain’s “national day”). People were screaming “fuera, fuera” (get out, get out) and whistling and chanting. Needless to say, his supporters screamed that it was just a bunch of right-wing crazies. Yeah, a half-million Madrid right wing crazies...okaaayyy. I’m in Madrid right now and I’m enjoying this.

I think we’ll be seeing people booing Bambi before too long. I think all these guys are going to go down together.

Who was it that said Ubama’s stance on Honduras is “a position in search of a rationale”? I think the scumbag Ubama sees Zelaya as a fellow traveller in the mold of Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, and the Castro brothers. He don’t need no stinking rationale.

Something got lost in the translation here. Communist Obama and Comrade Hillary were consistently dead wrong on this issue.

HonCitizen,

I recall Obama stating the day of Zelaya’s removal [or the day after the midnight escort] that it was an ‘illegal coup’. IIRC, he was in the WH oval office or some other formal looking room.

At the time, I was shocked that he used the word ‘illegal’. Very imprudent. Hilliary used the term ‘coup’, but tried to hedge or temporize the response. Put her in a difficult position as Barry had already blabbed the ‘illegal coup’ statement.

Anyone else out there recall it this way?

Hip, hip, hooray, BTW, now that the UN has figured out the truth. Probably Zelaya was too nutty acting for them to continue supporting him and his farcical allegation that his removal was unconstitutional.
