Ma just told us in pt. 3 that nobody in his admin. was willing to take responsibility for anything.

Next, he says that changing the Parade and Assembly Law (PAL) was one of his campaign promises. Removing the Hanzi for Taiwan from the web site for the pres. office wasn't promised, but that was done before the end of his inaug. speech. With a 3/4 majority in the legislature, what's his excuse?

Read about the pres. web site changes:

And the proposed changes to the law are BS.

When *one still has to look to the gov't to decide if a protest is going to be "problematic,"* we know that an authoritarian-loving gov't like Ma's (he wants the KMT Youth to "produce another Hu Jintao" and likes "the Singapore model") won't approve protests against his gov't. (The Wild StrawBerries were violently removed from their protest site the night after this interview aired.)

How those changes -- once decided upon -- don't make Taiwan any freer:

Ma is [not telling the truth] when he says that only "around 30" protesters were injured. There are *pix* of over 50 cops being violent. You know there are many more than that:

Many videos of the police brutality are on YouTube. Here's the documentary "Red Caution" (with English subtitles) showing a lot of nonviolent protesters getting hurt:

KMT pol Jason Hu (胡志強) is scolded as being "shameless" and was spit at, but nothing worse:

Ma is [not telling the truth] when he says that Wang Ting-yu (王定宇) "pushed" Zhang Mingqing (張銘清). Wang rightfully scolded Zhang (who had threatened Taiwan many times), and Zhang *fell*, but Wang immediately *helped Zhang up*. See the video:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacif...

The headline of the BBC piece above is also [not telling the truth]. If the crowd had "attacked" Zhang, he would have been hospitalized at the very least. The crowd was expressing righteous anger.

Ma is [not telling the truth] when he says that Chuang Ruei-hsiung (莊瑞雄) or any other DPP official threatened to throw eggs at Chen Yunlin (陳雲林). Michelle Wang (王美琇) from the Northern Taiwan Society was the one who said it. Look for those 2 names here:
http://fe1.udn.com/NEWS/NATIONAL/NAT3...

Ma is [not telling the truth] when he says that surveys said that "60 - 65% of the public approved of Chen Yunlin's visit."

The KMT's own poll (done by the Exec. Yuan's Research, Development and Eval. Comm.) put the number 10 to 15 %-age points lower: 50%:
