Secure Freedom Minute: Memo to U.S. Beijing Olympians – Don’t Go There


The New York Times reported yesterday that “Breakouts and lockdowns in Chinese cities make a risk-free Olympics look unlikely.” The obvious advice for American Olympians should be: Don’t Go There.

And, so far, the International Olympic Committee and the Games’ corporate sponsors are submitting to the CCP’s bullying.

There is no chance that a government unconcerned about Olympians’ safety will behave better once they are in Beijing.
