U.N.: Zelaya's removal "was constitutional"

A study by the Department of Political Affairs of the United Nations (UN) on the causes of the crisis in Honduras, concluded that the removal of President Manuel Zelaya, "was constitutional under the laws of the country," confirmed officials of that organization.

This version was officially divulged today by senior UN officials. Its conclusions also coincide with the study prepared by the Library of U.S. Congress, which did its own independent analysis of the situation that generated and maintains a political crisis in Honduras. 

"Most of the member states of the United Nations after understanding other scenarios and information now agree that they would not support any resolution of the UN General Assembly that requests sanctions against Honduras."

Translated from

All these organizations (OAS, UN, EU, U.S. State Department) were so quick to judge and condemn Honduras (even going as far in some cases as imposing sanctions) for the removal of a rogue, law-breaking president, and now - months later - they are realizing that Honduran authorities acted legally all along.  Shame on you! Shame on you! Shame on you!
