But, John Kerry (D MA) and Rep. Howard Berman (D-Calif.) have objected that
“The report, which has contributed to the political crisis that still wracks Honduras, contains factual errors and is based on a flawed legal analysis that has been refuted by experts from the United States, the Organization of American States, and Honduras,” Kerry and Berman wrote in the letter.So, Mr. Kerry and Mr. Berman want the report retracted and will kick up a fuss because they didn't get the results they wanted. Imagine that. LoC researches the Constitution of another country, finds that the highest court acted as required by THEIR constitution, when the sitting President of that country attempted to subvert the law...and that's wrong? Some how, this just isn't right. What sort of things re they planning for us? Repeal of the 22nd Amendment? Personally, I think we need an amendment that not only limits Congressional terms, but also forbids our Congress from exempting themselves from ANY laws of the land.
28th Amendment to the United States Constitution.
