(Before It's News)

Well, this should be interesting:

Hillary Clinton’s account of one of her crowning moments as secretary of state has been flatly contradicted by a leading Chinese activist.

Chen Guangcheng, a blind lawyer who escaped house arrest and caused a diplomatic crisis between China and the United States by taking refuge in the American embassy in Beijing in 2012, accused the Obama administration and Clinton of “giving in” to Chinese negotiators.

So: who eventually got Chen Guangcheng out of his jam?  According to him, it was largely the Congressional Executive Commission on China: “In his book Chen singled out Chris Smith, the committee chairman, and several other congressional leaders, for proving to be “principled and fearless friends of the Chinese people” — in implicit contrast to Clinton and the White House.” There was a rather interesting telephone call on this:

…but I bet that most of you have never heard about any of this before And, hey! Notice that this is from a Canadian website?  There’s a reason for that, you know.  And it’s largely because Hillary Clinton is a Democrat, and Chris Smith is a Republican, and (most of) the media has its little ways.

PS: You will not even be remotely shocked to hear that Chen Guangcheng got in trouble in the first place because of his work against forced abortions.  Oops, sorry! I meant, ‘China’s one-child policy.’
