    Given the historical context of the unrest in Tibet, there is reason to believe Beijing was caught on the hop with the recent demonstrations for the simple reason that their planning took place outside of Tibet and that the direction of the protesters is similarly in the hands of anti-Chinese organizers safely out of reach in Nepal and northern India.

    Similarly, the funding and overall control of the unrest has also been linked to Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, and by inference to the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) because of his close cooperation with US intelligence for over 50 years.

    Indeed, with the CIA's deep involvement with the Free Tibet Movement and its funding of the suspiciously well-informed Radio Free Asia, it would seem somewhat unlikely that any revolt could have been planned or occurred without the prior knowledge, and even perhaps the agreement, of the National Clandestine Service (formerly known as the Directorate of Operations) at CIA headquarters in Langley.

    Respected columnist and former senior Indian Intelligence officer, B Raman, commented on March 21 that "on the basis of available evidence, it was possible to assess with a reasonable measure of conviction" that the initial uprising in Lhasa on March 14 "had been pre-planned and well orchestrated".

    ...

    The former CIA Tibetan Task Force chief from 1958 to 1965, John Kenneth Knaus, has been quoted as saying, "This was not some CIA black-bag operation." He added, "The initiative was coming from ... the entire US government."
     
  2. CIA trained and supported world wide terrorist groups including Osama bin Laden & Saddam Hussein.

    This is no secret.

    Shit happens and guys like Rev. Wright revel in it.

    CIA is in the demonstrations in Iran most likely as well. The big money guys want a much bigger war in the middle east, maybe they are telling China something?

    Former Tibet guerrilla says peaceful protest only option

    POKHARA, Nepal (AFP) — A US-trained former Tibetan guerrilla who waged a long campaign against the Chinese says peaceful protests and international pressure are the only ways to end the deadly unrest in Tibet.

    "The Dalai Lama will never change his 'middle way' (of more autonomy but not independence) and or the path of non-violence," 73-year-old Norbu Dorje, who was trained by the CIA nearly half a century ago, told AFP.

    "Most Tibetans will follow what the Dalai Lama says, but there are many young people who want to demonstrate violently. But this will not work," he said.

    A year before the Dalai Lama fled Tibet after a failed uprising against the Chinese in 1959, Dorje joined the fledgling Tibetan resistance movement at the age of 23.

    Twelve months after joining, he was selected to be clandestinely taken to a training camp in the United States where he said he was trained by Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agents in communications and guerrilla warfare.

    Dorje spent 14 years waging a war from inside Nepal's border with Chinese-controlled Tibet, but these days he is a firm believer that trying to fight the Chinese will achieve nothing.
