Octavio SÃ¡nchez is a lawyer, former presidential adviser (2002-05) and minister of culture (2005-06) of the Republic of Honduras. His Christian Science Monitor column on the events in Honduras is “A ‘coup’ in Honduras? Nonsense.” SÃ¡nchez writes:
Sometimes, the whole world prefers a lie to the truth. The White House, the United Nations, the Organization of American States, and much of the media have condemned the ouster of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya this past weekend as a coup d’Ã©tat.
That is nonsense.
In fact, what happened here is nothing short of the triumph of the rule of law.
Please read the whole thing, and if you know anyone in the State Department, please pass it on.
