Says he stands in opposition to Communist regime’s actions as it mirrors his own Administration’s

In a scenario resembling that of the pot calling the kettle black, President Bush has hit out at the Chinese government for its crackdown on dissent during the Olympics, while the Communist regime is aping a “free speech zone” policy created by Bush’s own administration.
In a speech from Seoul yesterday Bush stated:
“The United States believes the people of China deserve the fundamental liberty that is the natural right of all human beings.
America stands in firm opposition to China’s detention of political dissidents, human rights advocates and religious activists.
We speak out for a free press, freedom of assembly, and labour rights not to antagonize China’s leaders, but because trusting its people with greater freedom is the only way for China to develop its full potential.”
Bush made the remarks hours before he left for Beijing to attend tonight’s Games opening ceremony. Critics have suggested that his presence as the first US president to attend an Olympics abroad, is providing legitimacy to the ruling Communist Party’s crackdown on freedom-of-speech advocates.
