JN barking at the wrong door

Dear Editors, 

As usual Jamyang Norbu la is barking at the wrong door again. Why should any Tibetan ask the U.S.Congressman to conduct an investigation regarding the dismissal of Ngapo Jigme from the RFA? [See: Why RFA Matters, So Much, Right Now] CTA headed by Sikyong Lobsang Sangay and the Speaker of Tibetan Parliament have categorically repudiated the allegations made by the U.S. Congressman. If the Congressman is still not convinced, he should start whatever investigation necessary and produce concrete evidence to proof his allegation of CTA’s interference in the affairs of RFA Tibetan Language Service and misuse of the U.S.Government assistance to the Tibetans. These are very serious allegations by the U.S.Congressman and he should either be able to prove his allegations with evidence, or express his regret for having acted upon hearsay information to CTA. To do such, the Congressman should first question the source or the sources of his own information or misinformation and their motives. 

JN need not mention the importance of RFA Tibetan Language Service for the Tibetans inside Tibet and also those in exile but his concern of the service becoming a mouth piece of Beijing is unfounded and ludicrous to say the least. After all this is a U.S.Government establishment and I am sure it has strict policy guidelines based on the U.S. foreign policy and the best interest of the United States which must be followed by whoever may be in-charge of it. So the question of RFA Tibetan Language Service becoming a mouth piece of Beijing via CTA is too far fetched and not worth even a penny.
