It is clear that the OAS and Secretary General Jose Insulza are taking orders from Hugo Chavez.
Chavez will not rest until his friend and fellow thugocrat, Manuel Zelaya, is forced back into power. The Venezuelan leader continues to use the OAS as a tool to overrule the popular will of the Honduran people.
In what seems to be an attempt to overrule a sovereign nation’s Supreme Court, the OAS team in Honduras is attempting to circumvent the judicial decisions of independent bodies that have already said that Mr. Zelaya cannot return to Honduras as president. The OAS continues to undermine the Honduran Constitution, Honduran judges and the rule of law for the sake of political expediency.
After silencing Venezuelan judges, Chavez now is trying to silence Honduran judges by using the OAS as his tool.

Bravo, Rep. Mack! Tell it like it is. Again, I never thought I'd ever say this, but thank goodness for Republicans.
