Via the BBC: Honduras drops arrest warrants for ousted Manuel Zelaya.

As we all may recall, Honduran President Manuel “Mel” Zelaya was invited, one fine Sunday morning, to board a plane to Costa Rica. Now, I must confess that I would very much like to go to Costa Rica, but there is a good way to be invited to Costa Rica, and a bad way. The problem in the Zelaya case is that said invitation was delivered by the military while Mel was still in his jammies.

At any rate, after many adventures, Mel found himself out of a job and is currently residing in the Dominican Republic and would like to return home and was a combo vacation invite and Trumpian “you’re fired.”

The piece notes that despite having three arrest warrants cancelled, he still faces corruption charges.

All my posts on Honduras can be found here, which includes the many adventures of Mel Zelaya and a discussion of the fact that, yes, is was a coup.

    It wasn’t a coup just because the Obama Administration says it was a coup. Zelaya’s ouster was in no way extrajudical, illegal or unconstitutional. Good on the Hondurans for standing up for the rule of law.

    I have argued this ad nauseum both in the posts linked above and again yesterday over at OTB, so I am not going to start again.

    The fact that you think that my assessment has something to do with partisan politics in the US indicates to me that your assessment of the situation is, however, about partisan politics.
