Who is in charge of American Foreign Policy?
Why is Keith Ellison in Gaza?
Shouldn’t it be Hillary Clinton?
Or Where Is Waldo Obama?
Does he have any policy for dealing with our enemies?
Oh, and what about the “former” War on Terror?
Does that even exist any more?
If the Obama Administration wants to declare it “over” doesn’t that tell us that George W. Bush won?
Why are we ignoring persecuted individuals in China?
“…But, that’s all in the past now.
Yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vowed yesterday vowed not to let human rights concerns hinder cooperation with China.
The AFP reported:
Amnesty International and a pro-Tibet group voiced shock Friday after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vowed not to let human rights concerns hinder cooperation with China.
Paying her first visit to Asia as the top US diplomat, Clinton said the United States would continue to press China on long-standing US concerns over human rights such as its rule over Tibet.
“But our pressing on those issues can’t interfere on the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis and the security crisis,” Clinton told reporters in Seoul just before leaving for Beijing.
T. Kumar of Amnesty International USA said the global rights lobby was “shocked and extremely disappointed” by Clinton’s remarks.
“The United States is one of the only countries that can meaningfully stand up to China on human rights issues,” he said.
“But by commenting that human rights will not interfere with other priorities, Secretary Clinton damages future US initiatives to protect those rights in China,” he said.
According to a report in 2008, the number of persecuted Christians in China was 788, and the number of Christians arrested and detained increased to 693.
