"an abuser who was trampling the Constitution"

Former Salvadoran President Armando Calderon said today that the former president, Manuel Zelaya, "was an abuser who was trampling the Constitution" and "should have been taken straight to jail."

He also criticized the secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS) Jose Miguel Insulza, saying he's handling the crisis in the country to conform to the agenda of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.

Calderon said that "it is a pity that the Secretary General Insulza is a tool of Chavez. It is unfortunate that the international community has misinterpreted the facts and has not studied the case of Honduras before making hasty opinions.

"An abusive man was removed who was running over the Honduran Constitution," he said. "It was not a coup."

Mr. Calderon understands the idiosyncrasies of Central American politics. His political opinions carry a lot of weight.
