  • "Are you deliberately avoiding the word 'coup'?"
    By : May 10, 2010
    Our headline comes from a question the Los Angeles Times asked in a Q/A with Eduardo Stein today. His response? "That is precisely what we want to clarify. ... There are people here who argue it was a constitutional succession, with minor mishaps along the way. I went on record [shortly after the coup] saying that a forced expulsion of a popularly elected president, taken by military people and thrown out of the country, is a coup. ... Here, I have been reprimanded for taking sides. So now we are calling it an alteration of political institutionality, and we will examine whether there was a constitutional framework and if rights were respected."
