Remember how Obama dissed the Honduran Constitution, Congress and Supreme Court to back the claim of the deposed wannabe dictator Manuel Zelaya? This is the guy they are protecting....
They're torturing me, Honduras' Manuel Zelaya claims
Honduras' fallen leader told The Miami Herald he is being subjected to mind-altering gas and radiation -- and that `Israeli mercenaries' are planning to assassinate him.

TEGUCIGALPA -- It's been 89 days since Manuel Zelaya was booted from power. He's sleeping on chairs, and he claims his throat is sore from toxic gases and "Israeli mercenaries'' are torturing him with high-frequency radiation.
"We are being threatened with death,'' he said in an interview with The Miami Herald, adding that mercenaries were likely to storm the embassy where he has been holed up since Monday and assassinate him.
Zelaya, 56, is at the embassy with his family and other supporters, without a change of clothes or toothpaste. The power and water were turned back on, and the U.N. brought in some food. Photos showed Zelaya, his trademark cowboy hat across his face, napping on a few chairs he had pushed together.
"Look at the shape he's in -- sleeping on chairs,'' de facto President Roberto Micheletti told a local TV news station.
Micheletti took Zelaya's place after the military, executing a Supreme Court arrest warrant, burst into Zelaya's house and forced him into exile. The country's military, congress, Supreme Court and economic leaders have backed the ouster, arguing that Zelaya was bent on conducting an illegal plebiscite that they feared would ultimately lead to his reelection.
So, Zelaya claims he is being "tortured?" Heck, he'd probably be better off living at Guantanamo Bay. Notice how these lefties scream "TORTURE" to get your attention?
By now we're getting used to Obama dissing our friends the Brits, the Poles, the Czechs, the Israelis and Colombians. But to stick up for an obvious nutcase like this loon? Good grief!
