Honduras: Micheletti, coupmonger and drug runner

Makes a lot of sense.

Machetera has the cool info in English right here and if the dude is on the Honduras Defence Ministry's list of suspects you can bet your sweet bippy that the DEA has the same intel, too (as Honduras milicos are owned by the US uniform dudes).

But hey, let's get real here. Being connected to cocaine smuggling cartels and being on US suspects lists never stopped anyone getting to be a President in LatAm: Just ask Pablo Escobar's Associate 82, a guy with the strange name of "Alvaro Uribe" who was a local politico in Escobar's area of main control back in the 1980's, was fingered by the Pentagon as being a "close friend and associate" but somehow managed to become....errr...president of Colombia.
