State Dept. Willing to Condemn Micheletti, but not Ahmadinejad

From Reuters - July 7, 2009:
"We deplore the use of force against demonstrators in Tegucigalpa in recent days and once again call upon the de facto regime and all actors in Honduras to refrain from all acts of violence," said U.S. State Department spokesman Ian Kelly in Washington...
From Politico - June 15, 2009:
State Department spokesman Ian Kelly said the U.S. is “deeply troubled” by events in Iran but stopped short of condemning them.

“I haven’t used that word, ‘condemn,’” he told the State Department press corps. “We need to see how things unfold.”

"You need to see more heads cracked in the middle of the street?” Fox News’ James Rosen shot back.

“We need a deeper assessment of what’s going on,” Kelly said...
No surprise there.

Reuters is also reporting:
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is expected to meet Manuel Zelaya in Washington on Tuesday, a U.S. official said, in a sign the Obama administration -- which has already condemned his ouster -- wants to provide visible support. The official gave no other details of the planned meeting.
Looks like Hugo Chavez' deliberately planned diatribes against the US is having the desired effect.

Chavez is a master rhetorician who knows how to push the right buttons. Right now, he practically owns Obama!
