Barack Obama insisted that he could not interfere in Iranian affairs while the regime “debated” its election results by cracking heads and shooting women dead on the street.
He didn’t want to be seen as “meddling” in the internal politics of the “sovereign government of Iran.”
But, that didn’t stop him from inserting himself into Honduran affairs where he worked in recent days to prevent Leftist President Manuel Zelaya’s ouster.
Today, Barack Obama joined Marxist tyrants Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez to rally around ousted Leftist Honduran President Manuel Zelaya.
U.S. President Barack Obama said on Monday the coup that ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was illegal and would set a “terrible precedent” of transition by military force unless it was reversed.
“We believe that the coup was not legal and that President Zelaya remains the president of Honduras, the democratically elected president there,” Obama told reporters after an Oval Office meeting with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe.

Zelaya, in office since 2006, was overthrown in a dawn coup on Sunday after he angered the judiciary, Congress and the army by seeking constitutional changes that would allow presidents to seek re-election beyond a four-year term.
The Honduran Congress named an interim president, Roberto Micheletti, and the country’s Supreme Court said it had ordered the army to remove Zelaya.
