    Credit were its due, I was critical of Obamas handling of the Chen Guangcheng issue, I never thought we should have trusted the Chinese to let him go or guarantee his or his families safety.

    Good job.:clap2:


    Blind Chinese dissident heading to U.S.
    May 19, 2012 | 12:06 am

    BEIJING -- Blind Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng left for the United States on Saturday in the latest chapter of a dramatic odyssey that began with his escape a month ago from house arrest and flight to the U.S. Embassy.

    A van with blacked-out windows whisked the 40-year-old activist, his wife and two children to the airport from a Beijing hospital, where he was being treated for a foot broken during the escape. Evading a scrum of journalists, the family waited in a VIP area until the United Airlines flight bound for Newark, N.J., departed shortly before 6 p.m. Beijing time.

    The sudden departure came as a surprise as Chen and family were still in the process of applying for passports. Although he had been told to keep his bags packed, Chen was not informed until a few hours before departure that they would be leaving Saturday.

    Welcome to Hell, Chen. Be thankful you won't be able to see what it looks like.

    What?

    Conservatives are not pleased about this?

    This was the guy that Conservatives said Obama threw under the bus.

    Well..he's coming here.
