Panda FOIA

The Washington Times fronts a story on the behind-the-scenes discussions among US diplomats about trying to convince China to allow Tai Shan to stay here.
Taken together, dozens of pages of State Department correspondence concerning the famous zoo resident provide an inside look at “panda diplomacy” at work.
The story doesn't come up with that much; we still don't know what discussions did or didn't happen between the U.S. and China. We just know high-up people in the U.S. were involved in discussing the possibilities. Which doesn't seem that surprising. Still, foia-ing the panda case. Only in DC.
