Readers' Comments on "PROTECT KUNDUN – FREE RFA by Jamyang Norbu"
When I was researching my “Free Radio Free Asia!” piece I came across more information than I could fit into the article. I also came across material which was troubling, and which I could not bring myself to include in the piece, though it would have bolstered the case I was trying to make....

Subject: a good detective story
Dec 05 2012 07:17 PM

What has been missed by the various comments is right at the beginning. The professor, whom JN seems quite flattered that this man should take an interest in this story says,
He thought my piece was engrossing like a good detective story followed with
"like any good crime thriller, explain motive and opportunity"
JN seems to have taken this advice and indeed written a good crime thriller, depending on one's literary taste.
I trust he will take the advice from Toronto equally as seriously and present cold fact before this piece can be taken out of "the good detective story" category.

Jamyang Norbula, despite repeated number of articles on this issue and pictures of Libby liu strewn on the web with His Holiness, i still fail to understand the true motive behind ur insistence on this issue. I am very discouraged with the pretentious way you drag Kundun into this whole drama. Your tactic of not pointing fingers at His Holiness and still getting your message across wreaks of a Shakespearean melodrama. I am very hurt how in one breath, you eulogize Kundun and then interpret His pictures with traces of immoral touch. Some of your comments about Libby Liu are very gender-biased. I am surprised that you found her sex scandal worth mentioning. You don't need to beat around the bush as your implications are clear. You are losing your case and doing more harm than good,when you drag Gyalwang Rinpoche into this in order to gain some support.Somebody rightly said and i repeat that the ball is still in your court to prove with genuine evidence.
Thanks for stirring the hornet's nest when intellectuals of your calibre should be doing international lobbying for the greater good of Tibet.

Dorji, it seems that JN shed light of truth on you, and rest are in darkness, but still putting lots of questions on JN's thoughts and allegations. Hopefully you might have read comments made by Tashh from Toronto, hopefully JN will answer and prove them all and on other comments made by many others on his previous article, majority of them doesn't agree with him, does that means they are all in darkness? ha!...ha!...ha!....

Jamyang Norbue needs to study the case thoroughly before levelling such a serious allegations against our democratically leader leader. As some one from Toront pointed out, mere fanciful imaginative speculations without concrete evidence will risk tremedously the writer's own credibility.

Dec 05 2012 06:04 AM

Why Jamyang Norbu's analyses always go negative. On what basis he concluded that Ms libby liu wants to impress BBG and get higher position. How can you concluded that motivation behind meeting His holiness is to impress BBG. Is this mere his belief, or his extraordinary thinking capabilities. It is very saddening that he uses His holiness name in this controversy. we needs unity in this hard period. don't be scapegoat of CCP. Mr Jamyang Norbu....

Subject: Very superficial and irrelevant
Dec 05 2012 05:43 AM

I don't understand where the real issue is taking to? Talking about 'Sikyong's charm' to Libby, digging personal background of her and the photographs are, i think, very improper for this RFA issue. I'd rather hope JN la would have provided more proof to his forceful allegations, especially the Sikyong la meeting with Libby Liu in London where 'incidentaly in the sidelines Lobsang Sangay and Libby Liu appears to have had a meeting where Jigme Ngabo’s dismissal was discussed.' (JN la's own word). It sounds so Superficial as of now.

And I do not think Pempa Tsering la's letter to the Congressman and to cc a copy to Obama is not stupid and it rather shows a transparency.

My comments are not being posted because I am personally attacking Libby Liu for her complicity in the occupation and atrocity in Tibet.

Subject: needs credible proof, JN la
Dec 04 2012 11:31 PM

Dear Jamyang la,

All of your articles (including this one) concerning CTA’s alleged role in RFA incident looks more like non-fiction novel rather than responsible (and investigative) journalistic pieces on this serious issue of allegation against CTA. Your articles (allegations), its responses and counter responses all argue over immaterial point of whether Sikyong really met Liu during those specific (disputed) time in London. Even if he had met her during that time, it does not prove any bit of allegation leveled against Sikyong (CTA) and Liu. The real issue and question here is whether Sikyond (CTA) conspired with Liu in removing Ngapo from RFA ? To that crucial question, your articles do not at all provide any credible, sufficient and reasonable evidence or prove. Instead, your basic arguments and premises (in your pieces) all rests on fanciful and wild presumptions, which do not reflect any hint of responsible journalistic standards and reasonableness.

Here are some of the evidences (your own writings in this article) of your wild and fanciful presumption of guilt of CTA and Liu:

(1) “But Ms. Libby Liu of RFA appears to have ambitions of becoming the supreme boss of all the combined networks, and has been cultivating the friendship of important people to ensure her bid for the top position.”
— How do you know of her ambitions? Do you have credible means of determining that fact?

(2) “It is possible that Sikyong Lobsang Sangye made the first offer of access to the Dalai Lama to Libby and RFA.”
— Where is the proof of that god damn offer, or is it your imagination ?

(3) “Of course just a single visit by His Holiness to RFA would not really serve Libby Liu’s plan to demonstrate to the BBG her closeness to the Dalai Lama. So more opportunities were created for her meet His Holiness in Dharamshala and various other places he was visiting.”
— How do you know (what evidence) more opportunities were created (in this regard) for the ultimate purpose of realizing her (alleged) ambition to get top job in the RFA administration (as you suggested).

(4) “Incidentaly in the sidelines Lobsang Sangay and Libby Liu appears to have had a meeting where Jigme Ngabo’s dismissal was discussed.”
— Most serious presumption among all these wild allegations is this line or assertion, where you casually pronounced the guilt of both Sikyong (CTA) and Liu without giving any credible (expected) proof. Your entire thesis (or novel) is premised on this line, in which you only showed your proof as presumption (by using “appears to have …discussed”). What you really need to prove (when you are making such wild and serious allegations) is actual act of “Conspiracy” by those alleged parties in removing Ngabo and interfering in RFA matters. So, you are nowhere near that level of expected reasonable standard of proof, instead you connected(in)factual dots with your own whimsical, fanciful and fictitious presumptions and imaginations.

(5) “I think the best damage containment strategy we can implement right now is for the exile-parliament (sans Pempa Tsering) to conduct a full-dress investigation as I have suggested in a previous post, enough to satisfy all concerned so that we can put a tight lid on this mess.”
— finally, if you manage to give or show at least expected reasonable evidence (prima facie) of such interference, you don’t need to demand investigation from ATPD, the exile-Parliament (being a responsible democratic body) will itself initiate such impartial enquiry.

* But before all that, first, burden of proof is on YOU, who brought such serious allegations, to provide reasonable proof of such conspiracy. Equity demands that burden (though rebuttal) rests on those who allege certain things. Thus, showing certain facts of their (sikyong and liu) meetings alone does not at all incriminate their guilt, you must know that.

So Jigme la was fired from RAF so that Libby liu can get good connection with His Holiness so that she can upgrade her profile to fancy her resume.Today's work politics its not how much you know about the work but who you know to get hired. Its sad nobody saw how valuable Jigme la can contribute to Tibet's struggle, in fact he is good asset. If China can use Ngabu family to their benefit why can't CTA do the same.

Subject: Exploiting the Kundun
Dec 04 2012 08:36 PM

JN la has chosen the title, Kundun, where as a more appropriate title here would have been " Yishin Norbu". (Wish fulfilling). Strictly speaking, this title applies in the fulfillment of spiritual wishes . But there are those who seek Yishin Norbu for selfish ends. A case in point is the episode of Jigme Ngabo sacking.

For some one like Ms.Lubby lu, seeking HHDL for selfish ends somehow does not amount to breach of spiritual bond. But what about those in CTA?

An honest former Chithue once told me this "At Dharamsala, there are also those who offer the longest scarf and do the lowest bowing at the feet of Yishin Norbu, but in reality their minds are full of selfish wishes and malice ".

He also told me with utter sadness that, in spite of all the free education exile, some of the most shameful episodal tamashas that took place at Dhramsala are orchestrated by a crop of young politicians groomed by a famous mentor. This , he told me is reflected in shameful factional fights at Chithue, illegal sharing of Speakership, mouth-frothing- fights - in the full glare of public view- over as a petty an issue a return air ticket to Australia etc.These same people are ruling the roost even to this day. What face shall we show to those in Tibet who are scarifying their lives?
