What value should be placed on U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s assurances that the Department of State wants to help parents recover their kidnapped children in Japan?
Judge this question for yourself. This is a link to recent public statements made by the U.S. Secretary of State, during a Washington “open house” event organized by the dubious Department of State “Office of Children’s Issues.” Does this say “we are acting assertively to protect and restore human rights of, and bring about justice for, our children and parents”? Or does it say, “I’m sorry that we aren’t willing to act assertively to protect the human rights of children or parents, but a few sentimental words of solace can’t hurt, can they?” Does this sound like an action to you? Or a feeble attempt at placation?

Hillary Clinton was lying outright. There is no effort. the State Department doesn’t want to fight the Japanese for kidnapping children because it has no importance to oil money, military bases, strategic interests in Central Asian oil, and competition with China for petroleum and mineral resources.
Well, she does say that the US is “doubling, tripling their efforts.” Hmm, considering what had been going on before, it doesn’t sound terribly overwhelming. Hope the letter from Kizuna CPR makes some headway.
