Honduras: A Time of No Time
Tom Loudon, truthout, 21 October 2009
Zelaya's first extension, which was to have ended on Friday, October 16, was extended to Monday. However, coup leader Roberto Micheletti is refusing to recognize what had previously been accepted and continues his stalling game. It is hard to know what could change and lead to a resolution. It is beginning to appear as if, in fact, there never has been any interest on the part of the de facto regime in a real resolution. Rather, negotiations have served to consume time, running the clock in the hope of using the November 29 elections to claim that a legitimate government has been elected.
