In the Zone of Half Truths - by Kyi May Kaung - from my Facebook page -

Quote from Anonymous -

"(Aung San Suu Kyi) is now in the zone of half truths"

-- this is meant as a response to Ko Mg etc. who said Daw S. is lying about Letpadan Taung, and just said "smoke bombs" when already confirmed by independent chemical analysis of physical evidence smuggled out to Thailand that white phosphorus was used.

Yes, she was "sugaring" or softening the truth, but she is not the only one -

exile radio stations with the exception of DVB are just as bad -

and it has been going on since 90s, but more pronounced now.

Daw Suu may genuinely not know the truth, as her gate keepers are too "water tight" -- and on trips overseas also both the security and access are tightly controlled by handlers -

this is counterproductive as leads her to say things that backfire or look like stone-walling.

But in truth it is pointless to find fault with her when the generals make all the decisions.

One commentator here (see below - scroll down) said that she is not actually lying but is a fan or friend of "Pyaung Gyi" - "Big Change" - by which I guess commentator means Presdt Th. S. - but as he is now no longer USDP chairman - I would like to know what you all think.
