Checking-in live from a family compound on the high plains southeast of Denver.
With all the lunacy and incoherent ramblings going on at the U.N. this past week, this one kind of slipped through the cracks, but that's why you have us, don't you?
It's been 89 days since Manuel Zelaya was booted from power. He's sleeping on chairs, and he claims his throat is sore from toxic gases and "Israeli mercenaries'' are torturing him with high-frequency radiation.
"We are being threatened with death,'' he said in an interview with The Miami Herald, adding that mercenaries were likely to storm the embassy where he has been holed up since Monday and assassinate him.
That from the deposed Honduran President, Manuel Zelaya who snuck back into the country on Monday and is currently holed-up at the Brazilian embassy.
Never mind that this country is meddling in affairs in which it has no business and the fact that our cutting of aid to Honduras and threats of further sanctions is creating a panicked atmosphere, it appears now that the administration is backing a complete loon.
Unfortunately, the administration has over-played its hand and any amount of backing-down now will represent egg on the face for Team O and this latest missive from Zelaya has to make President Obama feel awfully good about sticking his nose into Honduran affairs.
In for a dime, in for a dollar: this country is wreaking genuine havoc in a sovereign foreign nation that acted according to its own constitution and doubles down by backing a whack-job that harbors anti-semetic persecution fantasies. Things can only get better.
