The military coup in Honduras has resulted in the power-hungry leftist President Manuel Zelaya and his wife Xiomara Castro exiled to neighboring Costa Rica for their safety.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has this to say about the situation:

“The action taken against Honduran President Manuel Zelaya violates the precepts of the Inter-American Democratic Charter and thus should be condemned by all. We call on all parties in Honduras to respect the constitutional order and the rule of law, to reaffirm their democratic vocation and to commit themselves to resolve political disputes peacefully and through dialogue.”

And President Obama? Well, it seems he is “concerned” as usual.
