The World According to Arturo Valenzuela – State Dept. Briefing 11/30
Yesterday, Valenzuela gave a press briefing on the Honduras elections. He stepped in it a couple of times. First, he called the Honduran coup a “military coup” TWICE! And, then he raised the 1991 coup in Haiti saying that President Aristide was taken out of the country at gunpoint and that nothing like that has happened until the Honduran coup. Au contraire. If I was Arturo, I would not raise the issue of Haiti unless someone had a gun to my head. President Aristide was kidnapped from Haiti in 2004 by the former US Deputy Ambassador, Luis Moreno, and about 40 US Special Forces personnel as part of a US, French, Canadian orchestrated coup.
Here is a link to the transcript of the briefing and also a video.
