Deposed Honduran prez to meet with Costa Rican prez today

Ditched Honduran President Jose Manuel Zelaya will meet with his successor Roberto Micheletti and Costa Rican President Oscar Arias (the 1987 Nobel Peace Prize winner) later today to discuss the situation in Honduras. (I was fortunate enough to have attended Arias' first inauguration back in 1986; George HW Bush was the US representative attending.) According to CNN, Zelaya says that he "will listen, but will not negotiate." Gee, that's a great attitude. But I guess when you have milksops like Barack Obama and, unfortunately, Arias, in your corner, why not announce such a thing?

Meanwhile, our "terrific" American MSM continues its pursuit of "excelllence," this time by falling for yet another "embelllishment."

What's to negotiate? Under terms of the Honduran Constitution, Zelaya forfeited his office when he began advocating to change the term limits requirement.

The only thing that needs to be negotiated is whether the Honduran Air Force shoots down the next plane Zelaya uses to try to return to Honduras, or whether they let it land and allow the Honduran Army to summarily execute him for treason right there on the runway.
