Advice For President Bush

On where to turn for the real story on Tibet. From an editorial in Saturday's China Daily:

If their schedule permits and President Bush has a genuine personal interest in China's Tibet Autonomous Region, President Hu is an informative source.

President Bush may want to go to the 14th Dalai Lama if he needs information about old Tibet, provided the latter is not shy of the truth.

But the Dalai Lama's own knowledge about the Tibet after 1959 is incomplete and permeated with rumours and distortions from the Indian town of Dharamsala.

President Bush may learn a lot more about present-day Tibet from President Hu, who once was the top leader of the Tibet Autonomous Region, if the US president is brave enough to rise above the lies and groundless accusations surrounding the truth about Tibet.

Yeah, I'm sure that President Hu would be more than willing to provide the inside scoop on Tibet. Nothing like hearing it straight from the man who repressed governed the region.
