U.S. government admits Honduras coup was illegal

An ‘open and shut’ case

Declaring the question of the legality of the 2009 coup in Honduras “open and shut,” a diplomatic cable sent by the U.S. embassy in Tegucigalpa exposes blatant U.S. hypocrisy. The cable declares that “there is no doubt that the military, Supreme Court and National Congress conspired on June 28 in what constituted an illegal and unconstitutional coup. … Roberto Micheletti’s assumption of power was illegitimate.”
