Quico says: As far as pro-Micheletti agi-prop goes, this video puts the golpista case as well as such a thing can be put:Trouble is, close only counts in horseshoes and handgrenades. It does you exactly no good to go through all the various ways what you did was legal and then gloss over the big, bad, stinking illegality at the center of it all: putting Zelaya on a plane in his pajamas.
In fact, all this video does is beg the question: if you had such a compelling legal case for arresting the president and putting him on trial, why did you have to muddle your message with such a visible illegality?
Oh, and you don’t exactly cover yourself in glory when you fire journalists who use the word “coup” to describe your “coup” either, y’know?
Sorry UCD, but no cigar.
