Editorial: Leaving Lien Chan in the footnotes

The problem is that Lien’s latest jaunt highlights again the lack of transparency that has been the hallmark of Ma’s cross-strait policies and engagements. When so little is openly discussed and the results of negotiations so often presented as a fait accompli, the public has no way of knowing who or what to believe.
