I, F. William Engdahl, herewith declare the following retraction of my article, ‘Risky Geopolitical Game: Washington Plays ‘Tibet Roulette’ with China,’ published amongst others on the website http://www.engdahl.oilgeopolitics.net/:
In my article, ‘Risky Geopolitical Game: Washington Plays ‘Tibet Roulette’ with China,’ which was published on this website, I wrote:
‘The background actors in the Tibet actions confirm that Washington has been working overtime in recent months to prepare another of its infamous Color Revolutions, these fanning public protests designed to inflict maximum embarrassment on Beijing. The actors on the ground in and outside Tibet are the usual suspects, tied to the US State Department, including the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the CIA's Freedom House through its chairman, Bette Bao Lord and her role in the International Committee for Tibet, as well as the Trace Foundation financed by the wealth of George Soros through his daughter, Andrea Soros Colombel.’
These statements are false. The truth is: Trace Foundation is an independent organization with no religious or political affiliations. Trace Foundation is no actor on the ground in the Tibet actions. Trace Foundation is not tied to the US State Department.
