I did not know Hugo Lorens was a expert on Honduran law? He was entitled to report what he thought was going on at the time to his superiors; even though his sources in Honduras could tell him whatever they wanted. Zelaya is going to have a hard time proving anything with this document, not to mention that Wikileaks will not disclose the source of this document. Until the source of the leak is determined to be credible anybody could have typed it up.

What the document proves is that one US official thought it was a coop. Like a lot of the leaks, at its core it is a kind of gossip. I regard it as desirable for the current government to continue to argue that the ouster of Zelaya was legal regardless of fact. Also I think they should use the events as a president for any possible future ouster. It should become their impeachment proceeding.

Zelaya was totally unworkable and letting things proceed would have been a disaster. A constitution should never be used as a mutually agreed on death pact. You gotta do what you gotta do.

I agree with you J-boy on the document being based on gossip. I think there where mistakes made on both sides since there is no clear process in the Honduran constitution for naughty Presidentes. Much less no defined impeachment process. I see President Lobo is clearing the way for Zelaya to return to Honduras with out any crime charges. Why would Lobo want a person that is running a active campaign to destablize Honduras. It is know that he is directing the anti goverment protesters from D.R. Is it his way of "keeping friends close; but keeping enemies closer"?
