US President Barack Obama was told of the alleged murder of British businessman Neil Heywood before foreign secretary William Hague.
The president was briefed about the 41-year-old's suspected poisoning within hours of Chinese police chief Wang Lijun walking into a US consulate to tell officials he was murdered.
The decision to inform the President so soon after the killing of a British citizen overseas so soon after it happened was described as 'almost unprecedented'.
John Tkacik, who worked for the US state department in China for 20 years told The Sunday Telegraph: 'This was a very high official with extraordinary intelligence.
'In all of my experience I can't recall its equal.'
Mr Heywood's former business partner and powerful lawyer Gu Kailai - wife of rising Communist leader Bo Xilai - is suspected of ordering his murder and is under arrest.

I am sooooooooooooo sure Obama will stand with London on this one.

Bo the popular Maoist is threatening the corrupt Dengists is how I understand it.
If the Maoists ever win maybe they will stop the masquerade of "free market capitalism." They will move quickly to the final stage of Deng's version of Lenin's NEP. That's where the Communists seize any remaining property of the useful idiots and put them on a slow boat to America penniless. And NO TARP for them when they get here, BTW.
I actually liked it better when the Chinese were Communist and rode around on bicycles, and WE were the ones with the modern cities and bustling factories!;)
That sounds vaguely familiar.
