Those of us in the United States and in other countries around the world, free countries, hope that the choices they make are choices toward a more open society, a more transparent society.
Brace yourself. That was Defense Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, oh his first official trip to Beijing as Bush's Defense Secretary, warning that China must deal with "evident tensions between its desires for sustained economic growth and restrictions imposed by the communist government that limit openness and the free-flow of information."
This coming from the incompetent, incontinent fuck fart who proposed the Pentagon’s “Office of Strategic Influence” created shortly after September 11 to publicize the U.S. government’s “perspective” in Islamic countries and to generate support for the U.S.’s “war on terror,” by deliberately lying to and misleading journalists. (In retrospect, one has to wonder why they needed a “special office” when stooges like Scott McClellan, and whores like Maggie Gallagher, Armstrong Williams, Jeff Gannon etc. were doing the filthy work for them.) Not to mention Judith Miller!
Since the pot had decided to call the kettle black in the transparency department, it’s strange that Mr. Rumsfeld chose not to raise Chinese torture methods on his trip to China. After all, dripping water on hooded prisoners with electric wires attached to them is simply torturous!
