Obama: Coup Is Illegal

President Obama spoke out against the military coup in Honduras, which toppled the country's democratically elected president early on Sunday. "It would be a terrible precedent if we start moving backwards into the era in which we are seeing military coups as a means of political transition, rather than democratic elections," Obama said to reporters. “We do not want to go back to a dark past." Meanwhile, thousands of protesters clashed with Honduras' new military government. President Manuel Zelaya was forced from the country in his pajamas after he attempted to change the country's constitution so that presidents can run for re-election.
