“达兰萨拉的办公室知道下述情况吗？――刘仚（Libby Liu）及其助手嘎登洛卓（Kalden Lodoe）已经出于政治原因而解雇了晋美，从而伤害了自由亚洲电台藏语部，而这正是自焚激增，自由亚洲电台的工作从来没有这么出色、并且得到全球认可的时候。”
据有关报道，去年十一月，美国众议院外交事务委员会监督和调查小组委员主席罗拉巴克（（Dana Rohrabacher）），写信给自由亚洲电台台长Libby Liu，质询藏语部主任阿沛·晋美为何突然遭到解职。三天后，罗拉巴克又致信西藏流亡政府总理洛桑森格，就他和其他流亡政府领导人试图操纵自由亚洲电台藏语组的新闻报道一事表示愤怒。
罗拉巴克致洛桑森格的信公开发表后，莫拉女士说：“我已经在这里和别处读到许多侮辱和抨击这位美国众议员的跟帖。”“不管你是谁，请勿以粗鄙粪臭的评论玷污这个部落格。记住：援助西藏的美国国会的资金（the US congressional funds for ANY Tibet aid）, 以及自由亚洲电台（RFA），富布莱特法案基金（Fulbright）, 等等，是在多年辛苦工作之后赢得的。”
“洛桑森格刚刚在新德里会见了刘仚。讨论的是什么? 做了什么交易? 洛桑森格先生需要解释，2012年7月，当技术上只有自由亚洲电台的职员应当游说广播理事会（BBG）的时候，他要会见广播理事会的理事。洛桑森格先生应当知道规矩。”
从2012年11月27日至2012年12月25日，嘉央诺布（Jamyang Norbu）共发表了7篇关于晋美的博文，莫拉·莫伊尼汉（Maura Moynihan）在其中5篇下发表了11条评论。
CAN SOME GOOD COME FROM THE RFA CONTROVERSY?
MAURA |?DECEMBER 10TH, 2012 | 12:48 PM
DAVENO – whoever you are, please do not sully this blog with your crude and scatological comments. And bear in mind that the US congressional funds for ANY Tibet aid, with RFA, Fulbright, etc. were won after YEARS of hard work, so the TPR is quite correct to point out that the letters sent to Cong. Rorabacher by the Sikyong and the CTA could have been less strident and more professional. I have read so many posts here and elsewhere insulting and attacking the US congressman, when 99% of Tibetan refugees in South Asia would pay crores of ruppees to a criminal visa broken in aback alley of Majnu ka Tila to get to the United States. The hard truth is that in the USA, the China lobby is SO powerful, but support for Tibet is very thin. The Tibet movement only wins moral victories which are not enough. So think twice before you insult one of the very few members of Congress who cares about Tibet, or the TPR when they present a balanced and well written article about the RRA scandal.

DHASA YOGI thank you for you very kind words about my late father Senator Moynihan. Our family first came to know of the Chinese Communist Occupation of Tibet in the early 70′s when my father was the US Ambassador to India so it has been 40 years that we have supported HH Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people.
I am frankly appalled by so many of the foul language and insults in these comments on this blog and others, when hard and ugly facts are presented about serious issues such as the firing of Jigme Ngabo and the involvement of the CTA with Libby Liu. Attacking the messenger makes the problem worse. I am very concerned to see China’s power growing MORE AND MORE – the exile Tibetans need to understand just how fragile support for Tibet really is. The CTA needs to understand that they must PROECT HH Dalai Lama from people like Libby Liu, who is photographed holding HH Dalai Lam’a hand, then does irreparable harm to the RFA Tibet service at a time when RFA’s work HAS NEVER BEEN BETTER and the crisis in TIbet HAS NEVER BEEN WORSE.
The CTA must PROECT His Holiness and not exploit him to make connections or any other personal purpose of whatever individual wants to use His Holiness. I have seen it far too often and it is painful to watch.
Lobsang Sangay just met with Libby Liu in New Delhi at the Hyatt. What was discussed? What deals were made? Mr. Sangay needs to explain WHY he met with the BBG Board in JULY 2012 when technically only RFA staff should lobby the BBG. Mr. Sangay should know the rules.
Mr. Sangay owns a home in Medford, Mass, he paid off his mortgage fully a week before he was sworn in as Kalon Tripa. He claims that he has never sought US citizenship and only holds an Indian RC, but US sources say he has a green card if not already a US Passport. So he is not stranded in a poor, isolated refugee camp in India and he went to Harvard, he should be more forthcoming about WHAT exactly did he discuss with RFA and BBG members. RFA is US taxpayer funded so it is not an NGO that works for Dharamshala.

Hello Mr TIBETAN – your language smacks of the CCP’s 50 cent club. Just for the record, neither I nor Jamyang Norbu fired Jigme Ngabo, which has created a serious crisis in the RFA Tibet service at a time when RFA’s reporting on the self immolations in Chinese Occupied Tibet has NEVER BEEN BETTER – this isn’t a “lie”, Jamyang is simply reporting the facts. Clearly that makes you, whomever you are, very agitated. Sorry about that.
ANOTHER SENIOR CTA OFFICIAL JOINS “FREE RFA” DEBATE
MAURA |?DECEMBER 2ND, 2012 | 3:13 PM
DOES the private office in Dharamshala know that Liby Liu, with the assist of Kalden Lodoe, has fired Jigme Ngabo for political reasons, thereby harming RFA’s Tibet service at a time when the self immolations are exploding and RFA’s work has never been better and is getting recognitions around the globe?? Why does Kalden Lodoe have the power to get private audiences with HH Dalai Lama for his cronies, when many much more deserving people who have worked so hard for Tibet for so long, CANNOT????? Kalden Lodoe is said to have many relatives in the CTA and is trying to get a relative into Jigme’s job. This nepotism is abusive and harmful.
CTA JOINS “FREE RFA” DEBATE
MAURA |?NOVEMBER 29TH, 2012 | 3:25 PM
I have spoken to several sources in Washington connected with the US government, who SAW Libby Liu and Lobsang Sangay in London twice this year, in July 2012 and on October 23rd, 2012. HH Dalai Lama was in London for a symposium on that date. Lobsang Sangay flew in from the Czech Republic just for the event and to meet with Libby Liu. A witness said: “Libby Liu was always seated next to His Holiness in a way that was too close for comfort”. And just a week later, she fires Jigme Ngabo for personal and political reasons, causing immense harm to Radio Free Asia’s Tibet reporting at a time when the crisis in Tibet is escalating and RFA’s work has never been better. Ms. Liu, Kalden Lodroe and Arthur Ashe, a BBG Board member, are presently in Mundgod, for HH Dalai Lama’s teaching, and documents now available on-line from Kalden Lodroe requested Lobsang Sangay’s office to arrange VIP treatment for Ms. Liu. After she has done such irreparable harm to the Tibet service at RFA, why is she getting such favorable treatment from Lobsang Sangay and his colleagues???

For a detailed account of the Chinese Communist delegation that visited Dharamshala in August 2012, here is a post by Jayadeva Ranade, a senior Indian intelligence official:
MAURA |?NOVEMBER 30TH, 2012 | 4:20 PM
May I respond to the childish and insulting comments by “TIBETAN”, posted above. As a journalist, I have reported about conditions in Tibet for 3 decades and I have never once had to print a retraction or have had my integrity or standards questioned from any quarter. What then, may I ask, are the “horrible things” you allege I am engaged with, other than reporting the hard facts about visa brokers and criminals operating freely and causing immense harm to the Tibetan community? These stories are well known to Indian, American and European officials, who have serious concerns about protecting the Tibetan people. I am very familiar with insulting posts from the Chinese “50 cent” internet brigade, and your language smacks of it. If you are in the employ of the Chinese Communist Party, defaming the Tibetan people by and their freedom struggle is a cheap way to get some easy cash. Every journalist knows these tricks and are not fooled.

MAURA |?DECEMBER 3RD, 2012 | 1:10 AM
THANK YOU AJO CHE – I hope that my articles will start a rational discussion about how to help the Tibetans in exile get citizenship legally, and NOT be trapped by unscrupulous visa brokers. Why do these visa brokers operate so freely and so openly, breaking laws and ruining lives? Why are people afraid to talk about it?
FREE RADIO FREE ASIA !
MAURA |?NOVEMBER 27TH, 2012 | 9:25 PM
THANK YOU JAMYANG for connecting the dots from Beijing, through Dharamshala,to Xinhua in the Washington Post, and New York Times and to Radio Free Asia, which under Jigme Ngabo’s superb leadership had been reporting the hard and ugly facts about the crisis in TIBET. Indeed, Jigme’s unjustified dismissal could not come at a worse time for the people in Tibet.
I have worked with Radio Free Asia since 1998, with Jigme Ngabo, and I have the utmost respect for his character, judgement, values and conduct. Has the long arm of the CCP penetrated Radio Free Asia, one of the very few Tibet services yet uncorrupted? And paid for by United States taxpayers?
