Obama's Real Message to Latin America?

The Coup in Honduras

By Nikolas Kozloff

If it were ever proven that Obama sanctioned the overthrow of a democratically elected government this could completely undermine the U.S. President's carefully crafted image.

A Few Thoughts on the Coup in Honduras

By Jeremy Scahill

The US ties to the Honduran military and political establishment run far too deep for all of this to have gone down without at least tacit support or the turning of a blind eye by some US political or military official(s).

Key leaders of Honduras military coup trained in U.S.

At least two leaders of the coup launched in Honduras on June 28 were apparently trained at a controversial Department of Defense school based at Fort Benning, Georgia infamous for producing graduates linked to torture, death squads and other human rights abuses.

The Honduran Coup: Another US Destabilization Operation

By Barry Grey and Rafael Azul

While publicly opposing the military coup that ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya on Sunday, the Obama administration on Monday indicated that it will not cut off aid to the Central American country or demand Zelaya's reinstatement.

Democracy Derailed in Honduras

By Greg Grandin

The US media have also falsely yet unanimously presented Zelaya's moves as a power grab, an effort to end term limits to allow him to run for re-election. But the referendum Zelaya was pushing--which prompted the coup--asked citizens only if there should be a vote on "whether to hold a Constituent National Assembly that will approve a new political Constitution." In other words, Hondurans weren't being asked to vote on term limits or even on revising the Constitution.

The Significance Of Washington's Coup Attempt In Honduras

By Shamus Cooke

Nearly all of the U.S. media's writing about the Honduran coup is littered with negative references to Hugo Chavez, the "socialist project," and other buzzwords meant to influence the reader toward acceptance of the coup.

Honduran Coup Tries to Halt Advance of Latin America's Left

By Roger Burbach

A reform-minded president supported by labor unions and social organizations is now pitted against a mafia-like, drug-ridden, corrupt political elite that is accustomed to controlling the Supreme Court, as well as congress and the presidency. It is a story often repeated elsewhere in Latin America, with the United States almost always weighing in on the side of the established, entrenched interests.

The Other 9/11 Returns to Haunt Latin America

It was inevitable that the people at the top would fight to preserve their privileges

By Johann Hari

For the people of Latin America, this is a replay of their September 11. On that day in Chile in 1973, Salvador Allende - a peaceful democratic socialist who was steadily redistributing wealth to the poor majority - was bombed from office and forced to commit suicide. He was replaced by a self-described "fascist", General Augusto Pinochet, who went on to "disappear" tens of thousands of innocent people. The coup was plotted in Washington DC, by Henry Kissinger.

Latin America Drags a Reluctant Washington Into Supporting Democracy in Honduras

Mark Weisbrot, The Guardian Unlimited UK: "The military coup that overthrew Honduras' elected President Manuel Zelaya brought unanimous international condemnation. But some countries' responses have been more reluctant than others, and Washington's ambivalence has begun to raise suspicions about what the US government is really trying to accomplish in this situation."
