The Role of the CIA: Behind the Dalai Lama’s Holy Cloak

The Role of the CIA:

Behind the Dalai Lama’s Holy Cloak

Such a CIA resume.....:

Since 1959 His Holiness has received more than 84 awards, honorary
doctorates, prizes, etc., in recognition of his message of peace,
non- violence, inter-religious understanding, universal
responsibility and compassion. His Holiness has also authored more
than 72 books.

Is it enviable? Or is it an embarassment?

Such a dual role:

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is both the head of
state and the spiritual leader of Tibet.

Is it meaningful? Or is it a conflicting role, especially for those
who aspire to follow the Buddha, the one who discovered that the only
way to achieve cessation of all human sufferings is to surrender all
worldly desires?

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center:

After ten years of planning and fundraising, the $110 million Freedom
Center/CIA.... opened to the public on August 3, 2004 . . .

First Lady Laura Bush, Oprah Winfrey, and Muhammad Ali attended the
groundbreaking ceremony on June 17, 2002.

Is it a project to abolish human enslavement and secure freedom for
all people, as its charter claims? Or is it an exploitation of the
African American heritage for the purpose of promoting neoconservative
agendas such as to incite for more faith-based nation-building, a task
the Dalai Lama who, in their advertisement for their latest handing
out of their "freedom conductor" awards, "is both", ahem, "the head of
state and the spiritual leader of Tibet", purportedly is fighting for?

If we would recall that the notion of a faith-based nation-building is
so foreign to the American belief in the separation of the church and
the state, no wonder that none of the African Americans who were in
the forefront of the civil right movement was mentioned in the list of
celebrities attending the groundbreaking ceremony of this out fit.

And so, the more money the Dalai Lama gets from the CIA and their NGO
fronts and the more awards and honorary degrees from these so-called
"non-profit museums" like this "Freedom Center" with another colorful
modifier he will receive, the longer the Tibetan people will suffer.
It's a cruel joke for the Tibetan people to believe in this illusion
which is run by a man who is called a "head of state and the spiritual
leader of Tibet" but who actually was in the employ of the CIA for
decades and whose blood relatives were doing the same.

No matter how clumsy the Chinese government is handling the Tibetan
situation, the "free Tibet" crowd is relying on this phony man to lead
them from Egypt and into the promised land....?
