Zelaya assisted by a drug "kingpin"?

Venezuelan journalist Nelson Bocaranda reports that former Venezuelan Interior Minister Ramon Rodriguez Chacin arranged for Zelaya to be spirited back in a car trunk, with Nicaraguan help.

If so, it wouldn't be surprising. As one of three Venezuelan officials designated drug "kingpins" in an official [United States] Treasury Department report, and thus subject to arrest, he would likely have knowledge of smuggling routes into Honduras from his associates.

That's a heck of a guy for Zelaya to owe a favor to. It would be appalling for the U.S. to want Zelaya's rule restored in light of that.
