      Latin America Still Rejects Obama, Clinton Over Honduras Coup

      The Organization of American States in June rejected efforts by Hillary Clinton to accept the Honduran regime installed after a military coup last year. The US support of the 2009 coup against elected president Manuel Zelaya still poses an "unrelenting challenge to the Obama administration's goals in the region", according to the New York Times.

      Resistance movements inside Honduras have formed an alternative truth commission to investigate the coup and its bloody aftermath, including the killings of seven journalists. OAS officials are urging that Zelaya be allowed to return to Honduras from exile in the Dominican Republic. [see 2009 Nation interview with Zelaya.]

      The 2009 coup was supported by right-wing chambers of commerce across Latin America, and defended in Washington by several former campaign aides and lobbyists associated with Clinton in the past. [see also Mark Weisbrot.]
