The government of Honduras, trying to manage having former president Manuel Zelaya sitting in the Brazilian Embassy but stirring up trouble all over the country, made a bad move. Not quite as bad a move as letting Zelaya out of custody in the first place, but a bad move; The executive ordered a suspension of civil liberties.
The only possible good to come of a move like that was shutting down the Zelaya-backing elements of Radio Globo and Channel 36 TV. Fine, but it could have been done differently.
The Congress of Honduras saw all this as bad as well, and *ordered* the restoration of civil liberties. Micheletti is suitably chastised, and the executive order has been recinded.
Some evil coupsters, huh? Still obeying civil authority goes a long way toward making claims of legitmacy stick. That is actually of value now as even the U.S. government is calling Zelaya's stunt "foolish".
Fausta has all about this, in more detail. She has also posted her "Carnival of Latin America and the Caribbean" for this week, which remains my favorite overview of public media on Latin America matters. Thank you, Fausta. You're the best.
