Chen: I can’t help feeling like the U.S. lied to me “a little”
HotAir ^ | May 2, 2012 | ALLAHPUNDIT

He looked reasonably cheerful in photos with U.S. officials after the deal was made. Then, just a few hours later, he told CNN, “We are in danger. If you can talk to Hillary, I hope she can help my whole family leave China.”

The most logical explanation for the sudden turnabout is that China reneged on its deal with the U.S. once they had Chen back in custody, but that would be a huge betrayal at a moment when Hillary’s in the country for talks on a variety of issues.

I guess it’s possible that the State Department really did lie to him about the deal to get him out the front door of the embassy, on the theory that preserving good relations between the U.S. and China is more important than saving one dissident from Beijing’s police state. That’s hard to believe, though. If it’s true, it would destroy O’s credibility as a bulwark against China among the Far Eastern nations he’s been courting lately.

And if someone in the Department leaked to the media about it, it’d be a huge domestic embarrassment for him and serious campaign artillery for Romney and the GOP. In fact, here’s Boehner’s statement this afternoon hammering O even at a moment when events are in flux:

“Like millions of other Americans, I have followed the story of Chen Guangcheng with admiration for his courage and concern for his safety and that of his family. I am deeply disturbed by the most recent report by the Associated Press, which suggests Chen Guangcheng was pressured to leave the U.S. embassy against his will amid flimsy promises and possible threats of harm to his family.

In such a situation, the United States has an obligation to stand with the oppressed, not with the oppressor.

Why would anyone think the most pro-abortion president the US has ever known would help a pro-life activist?

This is so, so sad.

“Chen: I can’t help feeling like the U.S. lied to me “a little””

Frankly, I think that he has a lot of nerve complaining about this. We live here, pay taxes and so on, and it happens to us “a lot”.

Ya think? Just maybe? Chen represents everything the “vanguard of professional revolutionaries” ruling America hates. It was easy for Barry and Hillary to sell him a bill of goods to get him back in the hands of China’s communists. “Birds of a feather flock together”

Sorry Chen, Hillary and Obama have China’s back. They are Marxists through and through. Hell, Obama has Mao Xmas Ornaments on his Xmas Tree in the WH.

Meek crusader against injustice, turned over to his persecutors by cold-hearted functionary.

Just one of those eternal themes.

“Meek crusader against injustice, turned over to his persecutors by cold-hearted functionary.”

I’ve read of this sort of thing before...but I can’t remember exactly where that was...it had something to do with Romans, I think.

Even a blind guy should have been suspicious when Hillary and the State Department told him to bend over and grab his ankles .... they would take care of everything!

I believe Mr. Chen to all ready be hung and drying....

Mr Chen, I assure you, you have been lied to!

For what it’s worth, many Americans would offer sincere apologies for the lies and see humanity differently than does Obama!
