In a recent NewsFlash by Drudgereport, it has been uncovered that a woman protesting Chinese President Hu's visit with George Bush was taken away by uniformed Secret Service officers. Though the incident was captured on US television, segments of the broadcast were clearly censored from Chinese television as televisions in China fade to black during the incident.
FLASH: Heckler disrupts Chinese President Hu's speech on south lawn at White House: 'President Bush, stop him from killing'... 'Stop persecuting the Falun Gong,' she yelled... She also shouted in Chinese, 'President Hu, your days are numbered'... woman is taken away by uniformed secret service officers... right after Bush urged Hu to allow Chinese to 'speak freely'...

On China TV: As Hu Jintao was speaking, as yells of protesters became audible, the screen went black. Feed then came back and once again went black when woman was once again audible. During CNN International's post-speech commentary, at mention of south lawn heckler, screen went black again... feed returned when topic was no longer being discussed...

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

I believe this incident demonstrates how confusing international politics is to become as China continues to elevate itself to a major geo-Political and Economic power while rigidly controlling its own population's perception of current events. Unfortunately, the world's lust for capital will likely exceed its desire for human rights and little, if anything, will be done to curb the Chinese government's strangle-hold on its citizen's hearts and minds.
