White House wimp

The Dalai Lama's chief envoy says President Obama probably will not follow former President George W. Bush's example and make his Thursday meeting with the Tibetan spiritual leader public.

. . . [This follows] the "unfortunate" decision for Obama not to meet with the Dalai Lama when the monk came to Washington in October.

. . . China's furious reaction to the meeting is a symptom of worrying Chinese arrogance and chauvinism.

The Obama-Dalai Lama meeting could complicate U.S. efforts to win Chinese help on global crises.

The Chinese dictators told Obama not to publicly meet with the Dalai Lama, so he won't.

This is an embarrassment to our country.
