Senator Jim DeMint (that's Republican Senator Jim DeMint, in case you can't figure that out for yourself:)
"These bullying tactics by the Obama administration and Senator Kerry must stop, and we must be allowed to get to the truth in Honduras," DeMint said. "Not a single U.S. Senator has traveled to Honduras to learn the facts on the ground. And the Obama administration won't allow Honduran officials or even businessmen to come to the U.S., either. While this administration has failed to act decisively in Afghanistan, it is has no problem cracking down on a democratic ally and one of the poorest nations in Latin America."
Senator DeMint, I hate to keep repeating this, but here is all you need to know about the "facts on the ground" in Honduras:
"On Sept. 26 the coup regime took abuse of illegitimate power one giant step forward by issuing an Executive Decree to suspend guaranteed rights under Articles 69, 72, 78, 81 and 84 of the Honduran Constitution....the decree declares a virtual state of siege in the country through the suspension of civil liberties."
So much for your "democratic ally," and so much for anyone who is still deluded enough to believe that you and your Republican friends give a God damn about democracy, freedom, liberty or any of the other glib, jingoistic words that flow so freely from your lips.
