« Cubs Sign Rudy Jaramillo | Main | President Obama Is Not Going to Berlin – Follow-Up »

October 23, 2009



I think this shows a real lack of back bone on our President's part. He and Hilary Clinton are really showing a lack of human rights support. If the US government is only concerned about monetary issues, who is going to support the oppressed in the world? While a meeting with the Dali Lama would not change anything, a meeting like that has alot of symbolism and gives people who are oppressed hope to continue. We can be sure that the Chinese government is letting the Tibetan people know that President Obama isn't meeting with the Dali Lama.
It is great that the US Congress gave the Dali Lama the Tom Lantos Human Rights Award but the symbolism of not meeting with the US President, after he has met with US Presidents each year for so many years, is terrible. Maybe we should cover the beacon in New York Harbor?
