[quote=“Alien”]I snagged this article off Flicka’s blog.
[quote]In the early morning of July 3, 1982, Carnegie Mellon University professor Chen Wen-cheng was found dead at the foot of a tower at National Taiwan University. He had apparently fallen from a great height.
Professor Chen’s death was suspicious because the night before his death he was in the custody of the Taiwan garrison command. A noted Pennsylvania state criminal forensic pathologist pronounced the death “probable homicide” after a laborious review of the autopsy.
Finally, on Sept. 14, 1984, Taiwan’s spymaster in Washington, Adm. Wang Hsi-ling arranged the assassination of Chinese-American writer Henry Liu, who had penned an unflattering biography of Taiwan’s President Chiang Ching-kuo. By Oct. 20, two Taiwan gangsters had murdered Liu in his garage in Daly City, on the outskirts of San Francisco.
When the FBI presented U.S. President Reagan with a tape recording of Adm. Wang’s orders to the assassins for Liu’s murder, Reagan demanded Adm. Wang’s arrest, trial and conviction. Otherwise, Reagan would abide by the so-called “Solarz Amendment” and cease all arms sales to Taiwan. Wang was convicted in a Taiwan court and got a life sentence.[/quote]
And this marked the beginning of the end for the Chiang regime. Thanks you Ronald Reagan.
(Wang spent only a few years in prison…when he was released, he was treated as a big hero.)
