A death squad government may not be the Obama administration's first choice, but it prefers it to a leftist government that Hondurans might elect if they were to have a free election. The current government belongs to Washington, just like the US military base that the Pentagon would like to keep in Honduras indefinitely.

There is your answer.

If all that sounds disgusting, and reminiscent of President Reagan's death squad governments in Central America, it's because it is both. The question right now, as in the 1980s, is what will members of Congress in Washington do about it?

Nothing.

from the article:

"Now, the Obama administration is coming under fire for its role in ARMING and FUNDING murderous Honduran police, in violation of US law.

Under the Leahy Law, named after Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy, the US government is not allowed to fund foreign military units who have commit gross human rights violations with impunity."

My, my, my....deja vu OVER AND OVER AND OVER

It's OK when demoNcRats do it, just not when Republicans do it.

Arming the rebels in Syria....who ARE THE REBELS IN SYRIA? Who were the rebels in LIBYA?

The Middle East = an OBAMA MESS

The Spring Arab, Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer....and on and on and on

Middle East Mess = Obama

Obama supported the Benghazi death squad regime. As a matter of fact, he even covered for them with a big stupid lie to the American public so they had plenty of time to get away. That's how Obama rolls. 24/7

How do you figure that?

Rannity? Limbaughtomy?

"The current government belongs to Washington, just like the US military base that the Pentagon would like to keep in Honduras indefinitely".

If free elections were held, they would likely kick our asses out of the country.

Why do we need a military base in Honduras?

The B-2's went from Missouri to S.Korea in hours the other day.

Obama is wrong on this issue but the Military Industrial Complex seems to be the master in Washington.

Let's see if those fiscal "hawks" in congress will cut this stupid spending.

I heard Obama went over there and shot them personally, to the tune of " I shot a man in Benghazi, just to watch him die".

Sitting, kneeling and praying 5 times a day, every day.

That is the way.

BILLIONAIRE Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has raised his stake in media giant FOX News Corporation.

“However, at times like this one, we must address some of the issues that led to such a criminal attack. I believe the government of the United States of America should re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stance towards the Palestinian cause.” The press release attributed the statement to the prince.

“‘Our Palestinian brethren continue to be slaughtered at the hands of Israelis while the world turns the other cheek,’ Prince Alwaleed stressed,” the release read.

When will Rannity's "Prayer" rug arrive?

Once again we see The Nobel Peace Prize winner acting as a War Lord. We talk all this crap about freedom and democracy while we practice subterfuge in Central and South America. We back and fund Death Squads which even murder American citizens like the 3 nuns in Nicaragua during The Reagan administration and Pinochet in Chile murdering Allende and his legally elected Government and thousands of other Chileans with the Blessings of The War Criminal Henry Kissenger. These Washington Bastards murder citizens in our own Country. The murder in Waco of The Branch Davidians which was directly responsible for the Kansas City Bombing. The killing of sudents in Ohio in The 70's. The murder of Randy Weaver's wife and son. The us of troops against World War I veterns who wanted the bonus promised them. It goes on and on. All Countries us propaganda especially against their own Citizens for purposes of control, but it doesn't alter the fact that their propaganda does not match their deeds and actions. Obama is a War Criminal in a Nation with a History of Presidential and Congressional War Criminals.
