Republican lawmakers meet with President of Honduras, defying Obama
“TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) — Four U.S. Republican lawmakers met with Honduras’ interim president on Friday in a challenge to Washington’s condemnation of the coup that brought him to power.
The brief, amicable visit with the leaders of the coup that ousted President Manuel Zelaya highlights a divide in Washington, where the Obama administration is working to reinstate Zelaya but many conservatives side with the government installed after soldiers arrested the president in his pajamas and flew him into exile.
South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, the leader of the delegation, said before the trip that even calling Zelaya’s overthrow a coup is “ill-informed and baseless.” “
Gee, remember back in the day when Nancy Pelosi went to Syria in defiance of George W. Bush. These same people wanted to use the Logan Act against her. Now they’re doing the same thing.
