With a "repulsive Iran-Contra figure" here and a "close confidant of Hillary Clinton" there, sometimes it seems like half of Washington is working for the illegal Honduran coup regime! Is your plumber on the payroll? Your hairdresser? It can be hard to keep up, but fortunately the New York Times has published a handy rundown of Washington's top coup enablers. It is thoroughly, one zillion percent, unsurprising:
Roger Noriega: This former Bush "diplomat", eventually drummed out of the State Department for being too much of a hardline prick (even by Bush Administration standards) is now a lobbyist for the "Honduran business group" that organized the coup.
John Timmons: A former John McCain advisor whose firm, The Cormack Group, holds the dictatorship's lucrative P.R. account.
Daniel Fisk: Until two weeks ago, Fisk was the Congressional staffer organizing Hill support for the coup government, now he is the "Coordinator for Governance" for the International Republican Institute (!!)
Lanny Davis: Famous for organizing the race-baiting portion of Hillary Clinton's doomed presidential bid, devil-rodent Lanny Davis is now a lobbyist for the coup-hugging Latin American Business Council of Honduras.
Otto Reich: A Reagan-era slimeball and general coup hobbyist, Reich supports the military dictatorship for ideological, not financial, reasons.
If you see any of these people on the streets of D.C., please kick them in the knees, is the point.
