Really serious accountability in China
Remember Janet Reno taking “full responsibility” for Waco and Ruby Ridge, but not doing a damn thing about either one of them? Remember “Heckuva Job” Brownie after Katrina? Notice how Oliver North is a big TV hero these days? Sometimes it seems we take accountability rather lightly in our country.
Not China, though. Let your agency get corrupt and screw up the trust that other countries have in your exports, causing billions of dollars of consequences and driving thousands into poverty, and you’re in deep sludge: Former Chinese FDA director sentenced to death. And 31 others have been charged in the corruption case. Somehow I doubt they can expect a light slap on the wrist, either.
