In the story of Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao;
her husband, Republican Senator Mitch McConnell;
and the Heritage Foundation, the most powerful
think tank in Washington, you can see the outlines
of how it occurred. Their shift toward accommodation
with Beijing has happened quietly, with care
to make sure connections between money and ideology
are virtually impossible to trace. In the most
startling act of evasion, Elaine Chao appears
to have failed to disclose her service on the
board of a company with close ties to the Chinese
government, something she was legally required
to do upon taking office as labor secretary.
Like the crash landing of the EP-3, the story
of Chao, McConnell, and Heritage serves as a
parable-not of the arrogance of totalitarian
China but of the moral corruption of the movement
that should be its most formidable foe.
