Remember these famous words by President Obama?
“It is not productive, given the history of US-Iranian relations, to be seen as meddling — the US president, meddling in Iranian elections, When I see violence directed at peaceful protesters, when I see peaceful dissent being suppressed — wherever that takes place — it is a concern to me and it is a concern to the American people.”
Apparently our commander-in-chief only believes in not meddling in the internal affairs of Islamic Republics that he desperately wants to negotiate with. According to the Wall Street Journal the US was very involved in trying to discourage the coup that took place in Honduras.
The Obama administration and members of the Organization of American States had worked for weeks to try to avert any moves to overthrow President Zelaya, said senior U.S. officials. Washington’s ambassador to Honduras, Hugo Llorens, sought to facilitate a dialogue between the president’s office, the Honduran parliament and the military.
The efforts accelerated over the weekend, as Washington grew increasingly alarmed.
“The players decided, in the end, not to listen to our message,” said one U.S. official involved in the diplomacy. On Sunday, the U.S. embassy here tried repeatedly to contact the Honduran military directly, but was rebuffed. Washington called the removal of President Zelaya a coup and said it wouldn’t recognize any other leader.
The U.S. stand was unpopular with Honduran deputies. One congressman, Toribio Aguilera, got a burst of prolonged applause from his colleagues when he urged the U.S. ambassador to reconsider his stand. Mr. Aguilera said the U.S. didn’t understand the danger that Mr. Zelaya and his friendships with Mr. Chavez and Cuba’s retired dictator Fidel Castro posed. Source
Another Brilliant move by the Hypocrite-In-Chief. He tries to stop a coup in Honduras of a President who was ignoring his country’s constitution, and he ignores a rebellion in where people are fighting for their votings right. That’s change only Obama can believe in.
