How Should the US Respond to the Honduran Coup?

Hosted by

On Sunday, Manuel Zelaya was snatched from his home by soldiers and taken to Costa Rica. A political rival has been sworn in, but the Honduran President insists he's still in charge. The courts, Congress and even leaders of his own party support the coup, but a coalition of Latin American countries has called for an "insurrection" to return him to office. President Obama is in rare agreement with Venezuela's Hugo Chavez. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon insists he be reinstated, and the Secretary General of the Organization of American States says he'll accompany Zelaya to Honduras on Thursday.
