U.S. to World: Keep Out


On the Washington Post Op-Ed page, Fulbright scholar Tim Dorsett reported yesterday on Bush's latest effort to boost foreign investment, increase tourism, and improve relations with other countries.
Last month Zhao Yan, a 37-year-old Chinese businesswoman, was beaten and doused with pepper spray by a homeland security inspector while on a tourist visit to Niagara Falls. The inspector later said he thought she was part of a drug deal and that she resisted arrest.

The homeland security guard who attacked her has been indicted, but not before Zhao's beating was front page news in China for days. The story hasn't played so well in India either. They compare Zhao to the Indian Defense Minister, who was twice strip searched at Dulles Airport in DC.

I guess this is what Cheney means when he says we won't win the war on terrorism by being "sensitive."
