Isn't Zelaya here as well??! Any word on his meeting with Hillary Clinton? There has been no statement put out here about it and it is pretty much NOT in the news, just recycled rhetoric from Sunday.

Eva: I and a few other people who have been involved in the Honduran solidarity efforts here in DC will be attending the press conference this afternoon. I don't know about a protest outside, but we will be inside and if we get the chance to pose questions they will be challenging and focus on the illegitimacy of their very existence in Honduran government.

The company handling the press conference, Cormac Group, is linked to John McCain and, as you know, McCain is linked to IRI.

If there are particular questions you think we should ask let me know.

Thanks for the excellent updates.

"Zelaya to discuss Honduras crisis with Clinton"

By WILL WEISSERT – 2 hours ago

STATE DEPT. MAY PROPOSE COMPROMISE BETWEEN ZELAYA,MICHELETTI,AND MILITARY!!

See excerpt from article below and URL for full article:

"In Washington, a senior U.S. official said one option under consideration was trying to forge a compromise between Zelaya, Micheletti and the Honduran military under which the ousted president would be allowed to serve out his remaining six months in office with limited and clearly defined powers.

Zelaya, in return, would pledge to drop his aspirations for a constitutional change that might allow him to run for another term, said the official, who agreed to discuss the situation only if not quoted by name because of the sensitive nature of the diplomatic exchanges."
