Just when you thought our government couldn’t get more brazenly hypocritical, Secretary of State Clinton issued the following statement to China this week on the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Student Uprising:
A China that has made enormous progress economically, and that is emerging to take its rightful place in global leadership, should examine openly the darker events of its past and provide a public accounting of those killed, detained or missing, both to learn and to heal.
Sounds like a good idea to me. Why don’t we do it?
The Chinese must be snickering in their tea cups.
