The Chavez backed Zelaya has snuck back into Honduras and is hiding in the Brazilian embassy (no surprise, another Chavez backed leader there too). Very bad news. Another Obamanation. Putting a thriving nation into a vise and demanding the return of a dictator ...........
Zelaya is a Chavez puppet. Backed, bought and paid for. Fausta reporting:
Breaking news: ZELAYA BACK IN HONDURAS
According to Noticias 24 reports that deposed president Mel Zelaya is back in Honduras, staying at the Brazilian Embassy in Tegucigalpa.
CNN reports that State Department spokesman Ian Kelly confirmed the news,
U.S. State Department spokesman Ian Kelly confirmed Zelaya was in Honduras, but could provide no further information.
“We have confirmed that he is in Honduras,” Kelly told journalists, adding the State Department was trying to find out more details of Zelaya’s whereabouts.
Enrique Reina, the Honduran ambassador to the United States, told CNN en Español that he could not divulge exactly where Zelaya was for security reasons.
Rodolfo Pastor, the charge d’affairs of the Honduran Embassy in Washington, said Zelaya was at the United Nations offices in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa.
But Rebeca Arias, coordinator for the United Nations in Tegucigalpa, denied the leader was in the building.
“He’s not here,” she said, adding that Zelaya had called her late Monday morning and told her that he was in the country and would inform her within a few hours where he was.
As you can read in the Noticias 24 report, however, the Brazilian Embassy has confirmed that he is there.

Zelaya asked for his supporters to gather there to allow him to reclaim his post, and people have begun arriving. The US confirmed that Zelaya was back in Tegucigalpa, but then the UN categorically denied Zelaya was inside their compound.
Is the US hiding Zelaya?
Well, if the US knows he’s in Honduras and the UN says he’s not in their compound, then the US must either be hiding Zelaya or coordinating with another nation to do so. The State Department needs to explain itself — soon.
UPDATE: John Jay's excellent instant analysis:
For 80 years america has kept the America's pretty much free of intrigue, and managed to contain the attempted Soviet penetration into South American largely in Cuba and Nicaragua
Now, Obama reverses that almost instantly.
South America will become a hotbed of Cuban, Venezuelan and Nicaraguan intrigue and insinuation, and war may rage in South Smerica for several generations as it did in Europe, as all of this gets settled out. (I can guarantee you, that folks in Argentina, Paraguay and Uraguay are just not nuts about all of this: lots of English & German influence there, and lots of it ranging from "pretty conservative" to downright nasty "reactionary," and a little beyond.) and, following all of this, we may expect to see the first real expansion of Russian power, and the ability to project power, since their hey days after wwii.
The US had contained and confined Russia, and was diminishing the Russian sphere of influence almost daily. Obama has rubbed the bottle, and the Russian genie is out, and running free and easy and clear in our neighborhoods in South America. How long will it be before this spreads to Mexico?
And, since Obama wants to make Mexico part of the U.S., how long will it be before this nonsense, this influence of the Castro's and Chavez, extend into the United States.
It is happening so quickly as to be almost incomprehensible.
