Reports that the State Department was coming to its senses regarding Honduras were premature. Our appalling State Department is retaliating against Honduras for its refusal to set aside its constitution and re-install Manuel Zelaya as president:
The OAS Foreign Ministers mission is in Honduras seeking support for the San Jose Accord, which would restore the democratic and constitutional order and resolve the political crisis in Honduras. In support of this mission and as a consequence of the de facto regime’s reluctance to sign the San Jose Accord, the U.S. Department of State is conducting a full review of our visa policy in Honduras. As part of that review, we are suspending non-emergency, non-immigrant visa services in the consular section of our embassy in Honduras, effective August 26. We firmly believe a negotiated solution is the appropriate way forward and the San Jose Accord is the best solution.
Idiots. The only crisis in Honduras is the one we are instigating. The world is re-learning the lesson it learned so clearly during the Carter administration: America will treat its enemies better than its friends.
