"Both Mrs Clinton and Ms Pelosi want you to boycott Beijing, in the interests of human rights, Sir." "Nonsense!! I prefer dialogue to boycotts!" "As do the Chinese... They want to discuss how we've gotten away with Guantanamo Bay for six years." 8 April,

Reference Number: DCDL-0006041

Shows a White House aide telling President George W.Bush that both Mrs Clinton, Democratic candidate for the 2008 presidential election and Ms Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, want him to boycott Beijing in the interest of human rights. George Bush says that he prefers dialogue to boycotts and a second aide comments that China also prefers dialogue and would like to know how the United States justifies Guantanamo Bay. Refers to the suggestion that the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing should be boycotted as a protest against China's human rights record in Tibet and the hypocrisy when one considers the treatment of prisoners in Guantanamo Bay by the United States government.
