U.S. apology to China for Chen drop
Peoples Republic of China:
With all of the humility we can muster for this circumstance (all tongues in cheeks) we the folks of the USA would like to apologize for Chen Guangcheng showing up at our Embassy door as he seemed lost and could not find his way, so we opened the door and in he came.
Apparently Mr. Guangcheng needed medical attention so we had to determine what to do.
Mr. Guangcheng has been under arrest for advocating human rights, and we know that the Chinese government doesn’t acknowledge human rights and in fact Mr. Guangcheng is fearful that the government will retaliate against his family.
Apparently your charges against Mr. Guangcheng stem from his “exposing forced abortions and other abuses, and his dogged pursuit of justice and the mistreatment of him by authorities.”
Well, many Americans don’t like government-funded abortions either and we surely don’t advocate forced abortions even though we have an overpopulation problem of our own. We have a burgeoning population of old people that we don’t know what to do with. Got any ideas? We digress.
Please accept our apology for opening the door at the U.S. Embassy to just any old Chen to drop by.

Chinese human rights activist Chen Guangcheng, in this video posted to YouTube, describes his escape from house arrest.
BEIJING – A blind Chinese legal activist who was at the center of a diplomatic tussle between Washington and Beijing left the U.S. Embassy on Wednesday to receive medical care in Beijing and be reunited with this family.
Chen Guangcheng's departure from the embassy came shortly after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Beijing for two days of annual strategic talks that are being overshadowed by the self-taught lawyer's fate. There was no immediate indication of whether Chen would remain in China with his family after receiving medical care.
On his way to the Chaoyang Hospital accompanied by the U.S. ambassador. Chen called his lawyer, Li Jinsong, who said Chen told him: "'I'm free. I've received clear assurances."'
Though Li said Chen did not elaborate, the activist had been seeking guarantees of his and his family's safety.
"Chen Guangcheng has arrived at a medical facility in Beijing where he will receive medical treatment and be reunited with his family," said a senior U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue. The official did not give additional details on Chen's whereabouts or condition.
