When you are forced to play a deft game of anything, the chances are you may not succeed in gaining many friends because all sides believe you favor the other side. It is this uncertainty, particularly when the player is strong, that allows the player to remain a power broker. In the end, it really does not matter whether leaders in Honduras like or agree with Ambassador Llorens and the US State Department. What matters is that Honduras was kept from exploding. Also, I seriously doubt many people in Honduras would turn down an opportunity to deal with the US Embassy because of some grudge they might still hold. The US has endless allies in Honduras even if those allies might not be totally happy.
