Obama Administration Cuts Off Aid to Honduras

The Obama administration has now cut off aid to Honduras (Berman Post: Obama Administration Moves Toward Cut Off Aid to Honduras) over the non-coup (Berman Post: Honduras Coup or No Coup, No Coup). This is just following though with doubling down on a political blunder.

"The Obama administration on Thursday cut off all aid to the Honduran government over the ouster of President Manuel Zelaya, making permanent a temporary suspension of U.S. assistance put in place after he was deposed in June.

The State Department made the announcement as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was meeting with Zelaya. The action cuts more than $31 million in non-humanitarian assistance, including $11 million remaining in a more than a $200 million five-year assistance program run by the Millennium Challenge Corporation.
