Zelaya Exiled

President Barack Obama is said to be deeply concerned over the ouster of Honduran President Maneul Zelaya even though he is an ally of socialist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. The Honduran military kidnapped him from his residence and spirited him out of the country to Costa Rica early Sunday morning. Zelaya, whose presidential term ends in early 2010, had run afoul of the the army, courts and Congress by pushing for an unofficial public vote on Sunday to see if he could change the constitution and stay in office for another term.
