Your Tax Dollars At Work "Promoting" Democracy

The Unión Civica Democratica, a pro-coup organization that describes itself as made up of over 40 organizations supporting the ouster of president Manuel Zelaya announced today that it supports PCM-M-016-2009, the decree that suspends the constitutional rights of Honduran citizens for 45 days. Its spokesperson, Luz Ernestina Mejia specifically approved of the closing of Radio Globo and Channel 36. "We are against the repeated crimes of these journalists."

Generacion Por Cambio is a recipient of USAID funding for the development of democracy in Honduras. Gee, we spent money supporting a group that just came out in favor of the suspension of constitutional guarantees? Guess that was money well spent.
