Honduran "Coup" a Triumph of the Rule of Law

Was the removal of Mel Zelaya as president of Honduras a "coup?" Here's what a Honduran attorney says about it"
Sometimes, the whole world prefers a lie to the truth. The White House, the United Nations, the Organization of American States, and much of the media have condemned the ouster of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya this past weekend as a coup d'état.

That is nonsense.

In fact, what happened here is nothing short of the triumph of the rule of law.
Octavio Sanchez, a lawyer and former minister of culture in Honduras, gives the facts in this article in the Christian Science Monitor. Read the whole thing.
