China, Tibet and the Summer Olympics

Hosted by

The Olympic games are providing an international forum for Tibetan grievances against Chinese rule. During a week of violent protest, China has cracked down. What's the international reaction? Will the incident make life better or worse in Tibet?  Also, Barack Obama wins another major endorsement, and State Department contractors have been fired for rifling the passport files of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John McCain.  Political dirty tricks or just curiosity?
