Our horrible Honduras policy

Jan Schakowsky is circulating a letter "calling on the State Department to ensure that U.S. aid is not used to support police and military personnel that have committed human rights violations." (via CCR email). More from Univision, CCR. These things are hard to do and I don't have a sense of how that would actually work and what kind of impact it might have. But kudos to Schakowsky for giving the issue attention, and helping to send the message that, uh, currently we are supporting bad things in Honduras, as we have been. Some House Dems have not had the courage to even criticize the administration this much.
