The American media is beside itself with revelations that elements of Friday night's opening ceremonies at the Beijing Olympics were faked, including a lip-syncing little girl and a fireworks display clipped from an earlier rehearsal and placed into the main broadcast. Alas, if it only ended there. Turns out NBC's "China expert" Joshua Cooper Ramo is an employee of Henry Kissinger's Beijing office, China being one of the few places Kissinger can travel without being detained as a war criminal. Oh, the blinding transparency!
