Time for Obama to Call a Foul a Foul With Zelaya

Prof Jacobson has a post up at Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion titled "Zelaya the Insane". Citing a report in The Miami Herald , where Zelalya claims his throat is sore from toxic gases and "Israeli mercenaries'' are torturing him with high-frequency radiation, Jacobson notes the deposed President's insanity is seeping out. Indeed it is. Earth Times has a similar report where Zelaya displays extreme paranoia:
"Groups of mercenaries could enter here to carry out a killing," Zelaya told RNE in a telephone interview from the embassy in Tegucigalpa.

In a telephone interview with the Spanish daily El Mundo, Zelaya said the United States and the Organization of American States (OAS) had helped to foil one plan to kill him and to make it look like suicide.
If the US and OAS were involved in disrupting a plot to kill Zelaya, there doesn't appear to be any evidence of it.  While that neither proves nor disproves the truthfulness of Zelaya's claim, the fact remains it seems credible in light of Obama's continued recognition of Zelalya as rightful President after Zelaya was forced into exile by the  military acting on orders from the Honduran Supreme Court.

 Zelaya's  bizarre accusations his mind and appearance are being altered by the  "Israeli Mercenaries," hired by the Micheletti administration along with Zelaya's assertions the US thwarted a plot by current President Micheletti to kill him suggests the time has come for the Obama administration to reap what they have sown. Zelaya has been legitimized by Obama which puts the US in the position of acting on threats against him no matter how bizarre or delusional they may be. Zelaya's accusations against Micheletti will only escalate as will Zelaya's demands on Washington to end his "torture."  Will the Obama administration continue to "hover through the fog and filthy air" of Zelaya's insanity or take this opportunity to call the foul for what it is?  While I hope for the latter, like Prof. Jacobson, I am not holding my breath.
