YouTube has the video Burlington Mayor Bernie Sanders Address at Puerto Cabezas Sister City Program.
Burlington established a sister city relation with Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua in 1984. Over 35 years ago Bernie Sanders was railing against the USA behavior that seems to have come to a head right now.
Here is an excerpt from my previous post How US policy in Honduras set the stage for today’s mass migration.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in particular, sent conflicting messages, and worked to ensure that Zelaya did not return to power. This was contrary to the wishes of the Organization of American States, the leading hemispheric political forum composed of the 35 member-countries of the Americas, including the Caribbean. Several months after the coup, Clinton supported a highly questionable election aimed at legitimating the post-coup government.
Compare the foreign policy expereince of Bernie Sanders in 1984 with what Hillary Clinton displayed in 2009. Now do you understand why I would not vote for Hillary Clinton? If people understaood what Hillary Clinton was and is, I don’t think they would have voted for her either.
