China lodges stern representations with U.S. over Tiananmen comments

China has lodged stern representations with the United States, its foreign ministry said on Monday, over comments by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urging it to come clean on the anniversary of the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown.

Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comments at a regular briefing in Beijing.

Pompeo, speaking ahead of the 29-year anniversary of the day Chinese troops and tanks quashed the pro-democracy student-led demonstrations, called for Beijing to make a full accounting for those killed, detained or who went missing in the crackdown

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Sec State Pompeo has a very selective memory; does he not remember the Ohio State National Guard massacre at Kent State, where Federal charges against those firing the shots were dropped, and which the US government has consistently refused to investigate afterward?!?!?

U.S. refuses request to probe 1970 Kent State shooting

The article goes on to state: "Eight guardsmen were originally charged in October 1974 with depriving the students of their civil rights. But after the prosecution presented its case, U.S. (Federal) District Judge Frank Battisti granted the defendants’ motion for acquittal, ruling the government had not proven the charges."
