Chinese Would-Be Defector May Have Revealed Coup Plot to US

Two high-level officials in the Chinese Communist Party conspired to disrupt Xi Jinping’s accession to the pinnacle of the Party and to take control of security forces to force Xi to hand over power, according to a prominent dissident website quoting insider sources.

Gertz writes that, according to his sources, Zhou Yongkang, the Communist Party’s security czar, has taken control of Chongqing from Bo Xilai, and has not allowed further action or investigation against Bo.

Gertz reported that Locke recommended that Wang Lijun be granted asylum, but was overruled by the White House because they did not wish to disrupt U.S.-China relations just before Xi Jinping’s visit to the United States.

Wang is understood to have divulged a lot of information about the inner operations of the Communist Party, which was typed up and cabled back to Washington throughout the night. The Epoch Times today reported Wang’s involvement—dating back to 2006—in the execution and organ harvesting of prisoners, many of whom were probably Falun Gong practitioners detained for their beliefs.
