    A blind-lawyer campaigner of human rights scales a wall and swims a river to escape house arrest. He finally gets to the US embassy, and what does the national that fights wars and disposes dictators in the name of human rights do?


    "Chen said he left the embassy only after U.S. officials encouraged him to do so.

    "The embassy kept lobbying me to leave and promised to have people stay with me at the hospital," he said. "But this afternoon, as soon as I checked into the hospital room, I noticed they were all gone."

    Chinese activist wants to go to U.S. - CNN.com

    Made in China is written in blood, and this administration cares more about keeping plastic trinkets and electronics flowing cheaply into the United States than standing by the rhetoric of human rights and freedom that our leaders supposedly believe in.

    Getting that man out of the country would not be an act of war. What would the repercussions be? Instead we sell him out so the Secretary of State won't have to do some actual diplomacy, negotiating or defending of American values.

    Is America-Chinese relations worth one person? I feel certain the State Department had their reasons. I'll reserve judgment until further information.
