The Last Twist In The Tibet-China Saga?
Things may not be as they appear.
This morning, while on a speaking tour of Europe, it was revealed that the H.H. the Dalai Lama was carrying a Chinese passport.
When asked why, the Tibetan spiritual leader seemed to be at a loss for words. All he said was, “I must be on my way.” He was quickly escorted out of the building by security, but detained by Interpol for further questioning.
A spokesperson for Interpol (Internal Criminal Police Organization) said, “The investigation is still in its infancy, but as of now, we know that the Dalai Lama was indeed carrying a Chinese passport, and his flight itinerary was under a false identity (Gyaltsen Rinchen) that had him landing in Beijing late Sunday evening.”
There is no doubt that the rumor mill is churning. The most popular theory has the Dalai Lama acting as a subversive spy for Hu Jin Tao and the Communist party. Many believe that Beijing may have been using the spiritual leader’s charisma and influence to spy on their Western counterparts.
As of now this is all speculation. Perhaps the Tibetan Government was working out a truce with the Chinese government, and wanted to keep the discussions under cover until something more tangible develops.
