No Deceit Here
Obama proclaimed yesterday, "To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history, but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist."
Who is he talking about? Obama never said, and that left us wondering aloud.
Today Chinese officials helped to elucidate things by censoring that particular quote from the state media translation of Obama's inaugural speech. The irony of their deceit, corruption, and silencing of dissent - it deserves a grim wince.
