"Deposed Honduran President Manuel Zelaya sent a letter to divided Latin American leaders Tuesday urging them to reject elections held under the coup-installed government and help restore him to power. . . . The United States, which cut off development aid and anti-drug trafficking cooperation with its impoverished ally after the coup, says Hondurans have the right to choose a new leader in regular elections that had been scheduled before Zelaya's overthrow. Costa Rica, Peru, Colombia and Panama share that stance. But Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and other leftist-led governments say recognizing the election amounts to legitimizing Central America's first coup in 20 years."
Obama's Honduran policy has united South America on this issue . . . in opposition to the U.S.A.
