ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the statement from U.S. officials that China's expressed anger at the U.S. award given to the exiled Tibetan leader Dalai Lama is part of a controlled effort to play down or ignore more serious developments in China. The Dalai Lama received the congressional Medal of Freedom by President Bush, who defended the award saying that promoting religious freedom was good for both Tibet and China. China denounced the award as interference in its internal affairs.
