The insanity

The Zero’s foreign policy is being revealed to be as insane as Manuel Zelaya, the deposed president of Honduras.

William A. Jacobson, a Cornell U law professor who blogs at Legal Insurrection, nails it in this post:

As reported in the Miami Herald, Zelaya’s insanity is seeping out. Zelaya claims he is the victim of radiation and mind control experiments and is being targeted by Israeli mercenaries.

This is the man the Obama administration has been trying hard to restore to power in Honduras. A crazy, power-hungry tyrant in the image of Hugo Chavez, Muammar alKhadaffi and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

By taking Zelaya’s side, the Obama administration has betrayed an ally and friend. More important, the Obama administration’s foreign policy has been revealed to be as insane as Zelaya.

We bully our friends, twist the concept of the rule of law to portray our allies as criminals, and impose sanctions and other get-tough tactics only against people who like us. A foreign policy gone mad, in which good is bad and friend is foe.

I really hope the Obama administration learns the right lessons from its failed love affair with the crazy Zelaya. But I won’t hold my breath on that one.

Obama’s central America policy is shaping up to be about as helpful as Jimmy “I Surrender!!” Carter’s was.

  1. You forgot to mention the stunning Obama-dijon-mustard-on-the-hamburger incident that Jacobson brought to light. There’s certainly grounds for impeachment. So what, you source a disgruntled extreme right wing lawyer who, with including you, has probably 5000 other nut bags around the country who read his pathetic little blog.
