From the Washington Post:

In an attempt to gain favor with China, the United States pressured Tibetan representatives to postpone a meeting between the Dalai Lama and President Obama until after Obama’s summit with his Chinese counterpart, Hu Jintao, scheduled for next month, according to diplomats, government officials and other sources familiar with the talks.

For the first time since 1991, the Tibetan spiritual leader will visit Washington this week and not meet with the president.

“Please wait your turn… the line forms behind the bad guys.”

If the Dalai Lama really wants to be granted an audience with King Barack, he first needs to go around delivering anti-American diatribes and he’ll be assured a prompt meeting. During the campaign, Obama said he’d meet with Castro and Ahmadinejad too. But the Dalai Lama? Too controversial.
