The US representative Craig Kelly is in the office of the President Roberto Micheletti Baín and he is reassuring and confirming with Micheletti that the US will be observing and validating the elections in Honduras and that they consider the elections a solution to the political crisis that has had a hold on the country since before June 28.
Craig Kelly is here trying to bring both parts to the table to complete the accord that was signed by Zelaya and Micheletti in October. The US position is clear that both parties understood completely what they were signing and that Zelaya understood when he signed that he might not be returned to the presidency if the Congress voted against him.
I think the US became more than fed up when Zelaya accused Tom Shannon of threatening him with throwing Hector Zelaya in prison for drug trafficking.
They have decided the way to solve this is recognize the elections and wash their hands of the whole mess. The US knows that it does not matter if the OAS does not recognize the elections because the US is the primary trading partner with Honduras.
They also know that Chavez´days are numbered with his country going to hell in a handbasket faster than he can throw insults.
