Ousted Honduran president rejects compromise, rails against international conspiracy
September 25, 2009
Former Honduran President Manuel Zelaya-- whose bid to be restored to power is opposed by the Honduran bishops, but supported by the US State Department-- has said that he cannot reach a compromise with the country's new interim government to ward off a political crisis. Zelaya continues to insist that he was ousted by a military coup-- although he was removed from office by a valid court decree, in conformance with the country's constitutional processes-- and charges that he is the subject of a worldwide conspiracy using Israel mercenaries and mind-altering chemicals to disrupt his plans. Meanwhile the people of Honduras, hampered by a curfew that the government imposed to avoid violence, are suffering shortages of food as the crisis continues.
