Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met privately with ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, Tuesday.
She said the president of Costa Rica has agreed to serve as a mediator to help negotiate an end to the political stand-off, there.
Right now, the Honduran military is physically blocking Zelaya's return, cancelling all flights at the capitol airport.
CBN News spoke with Marco Cáceres, co-founder of Project Honduras, a network organization of hundreds of non-profits organizations totaling more than 6,000 people who do volunteer work in Honduras, about Zelaya's meeting with Clinton.
"Honduras is essentially a chess piece in my view," Cáceres said. "It is part of a broader strategy that is being pushed by Chavez and the leaders of other countries like Nicaragua, Ecuador, Bolivia and a few others. It is an effort to create essentially an alternative system in Latin America."
