Suu Kyi Meets with US Senator Jim Webb

Beyond the Veil| AFP France writes that US Senator Jim Webb’s meeting yesterday with Myanmar military leader ruler Than Shwe could herald a shift in Washington’s tough stance against the junta. Webb, who is very close to President Obama, also had an unprecedented meeting with Aung San Suu Kyi on Saturday. Myanmar opposition leader Suu Kyi was sentenced to another 18 months of house arrest earlier in the week.
