Kudos to Lawrence E. Harrison for standing up against President Obama’s wrongheaded support of deposed Honduran President Manuel Zelaya (“Lessons from Nicaragua,” Opinion, Sunday). Mr. Harrison, a former Latin American official in the Carter administration, has experienced firsthand the duplicity of far-left-wing politicians in Latin America and is perplexed and concerned that for some unfathomable reason, Mr. Obama is supporting an anti-democratic and anti-American politician like Mr. Zelaya.

Mr. Obama’s stance in this case is another reflection of how radical his policies are on both the foreign and domestic fronts. Given the sad state of the Republican Party at this time, we may have to depend on more patriotic Democrats like Mr. Harrison to speak out against the administration’s policies, which are undercutting our individual freedoms and endangering the national security of this country.
