US supporting death squads in Honduras

A worrying development and flashback to the Reagan Adminsitration of the 1980s, the re-emergence of right wing death squads, often government sanctioned with the sole purpose of eliminating opponents. Honduras like many Central American states has seen a big upsurge of political violence directed by the state against political opponents. The overthrow of the left wing Zelaya government in 2009 to be replaced by the pro Washington right wing Pepe Lobo government has overseen this worrying development.

Another stain in US foreign policy.

Do you have anything from a 'Credible' link and not one as biased as this?

Unfortunately death squads are used by many governments to prevent justice – look at our own unionist death squads.
