Fox To Guard Henhouse

Wen Ho Lee...ehr...Gary Locke, no relation to John Locke, will be nominated to be the new Chinese Ambassador to China.

President Obama will nominate Commerce Secretary Gary Locke as the next U.S. ambassador to China, senior administration officials said late Monday, continuing a game of musical chairs that has shuffled top administration officials at the start of the second half of Obama's term.

A formal announcement is planned for Tuesday in the Diplomatic Reception Room.
The Beijing vacancy was created when Ambassador Jon Huntsman resigned his post, making it clear in the process that he is weighing a bid to challenge Obama for the presidency in 2012. Huntsman, a Republican, was considered a strong ambassador in one of the most strategically important capitals in the world, with his mix of fluency in Chinese and extensive knowledge about the region. He plans to depart Beijing in April.
Apparently he has done such a good job representing Chinese businessmen to the American government, he will do an even better job representing Chinese government interests to the Obama Regime.
Although Locke has not emerged as a star in the Obama orbit, he is Chinese American and well-regarded in the Chinese business community. He was Obama's third choice for the Commerce position, after the nomination of Bill Richardson was pulled over ethics concerns and Senator Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) withdrew over policy disagreements.

The CCP must be celebrating this coup, they now have an ABC, American Born Chinese, at the highest level of the American government. The Chinese government has an extensive program to use what they call Overseas Chinese as intelligence and influence agents. Just ask Clinton influence peddlers Charlie Trie, John Huang, and Pauline Kanchanalak, or Chinese spies Tsien Hsue-Shen, Larry Chin, or Wen Ho Lee; all Overseas Chinese, immigrants, or ABCs.
Who will ask Locke the tough questions, how can he go back to representing America after looking after Chinese interests for so long?
