OAS Will Hold Meeting on December 4 Regarding the Situation in Honduras

November 23, 2009

Lewis Amselem, US Interim Representative to the OAS, no doubt ripping out the heart of a colleague.


The Secretary of the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States issued an announcement today of a meeting regarding the situation in Honduras scheduled for December 4 at 3:00PM.

Someone over there at the OAS must be clairvoyant and know what the “situation” of Honduras will be in 11 days.  And isn’t December 4 just 2 days after Micheletti returns to the presidential palace?  By the time the OAS meets, the election will have taken place but its outcome will be widely disputed.  Also, the Honduran state security apparatus will be gearing down a bit from its all out election assault on the people and human rights abuses might be discussed.  God knows, Hillary was mute on this topic.

Since the US is institutionally incapable of doing the right thing about Honduras (yes, and virtually everything else) and Hillary isn’t even throwing crumbs to the masses, I think it would be a good idea to switch the venue for protests from the State Department and plan a protest at the OAS on December 4.  This would be a good opportunity to give the Venezuelan ambassador, Roy Chaderton and the Nicaraguan ambassador, Denis Moncada an “attaboy,” to yell insulting things about the ambassadors from Colombia and Panama, and a priceless opportunity to tell  US’ interim representative, Lewis Amselem, what an ass he is and  hold up signs with choice quotes from his  “I’m a simple guy, I shop at Wal-Mart, I went to public school . . .” speech.

    Your caption made me laugh, not scornfully, but sincerely.
