Romeo, Romeo, thou, Romeo?

El Heraldo's minute-by-minute timeline just denied that Gen. Vasquez Velasquez himself is off talking to his Commander in Chief:
Romeo. El vocero de las Fuerzas Armadas de Honduras desmintió esta noche que el Jefe del Estado Mayor Conjunto, Romeo Vásquez, haya llegado a la embajada de Brasil en Tegucigalpa para reunirse con Zelaya.

Romeo. The spokesperson of the Armed Forces of Honduras denied tonight that the Head of the Joint Chiefs of the Armed Forces, Romeo Vasquez, had arrived at the embassy of Brazil in Tegucigalpa to meet with Zelaya.
Really? Rumor, or not?

[and yes, for the pedants among you, I know that I am committing an act of violence on the Shakespeare quote. But really, I resisted a direct reference this long, and that is more than anyone should have expected]
