Backstory: Coups in Central America

Thursday, July 09, 2009

Though the recent coup in Honduras is the first to take place in Central America since the end of the Cold War, the incident is part of a long history of political upheaval and military-sponsored coups in the region. On today's Backstory we'll put the turmoil in Honduras into historical and political context with Stephen Schlesinger. He’s an adjunct fellow at the Century Foundation and the former Director of the World Policy Institute at the New School.

I am stilled shocked that the news from Guatemala about its president being implicated in political assassinations only two months ago is not reporting on any progress in the E.U.'s investigation of the murders. Under-reported?
