It's pretty clear -- Jiang doesn't know, he can come here.
     Trie DOES know, he CAN'T !

   Asking Jiang such a question would have been akin to asking
Adolph Hitler if he was killing Jews. Adolph like Jiang would
have smilingly said no.

   In this disengenuous answer, Mr. Clinton is showing his usual
contempt for people's common sense intellegence.  But then, since
he's gotton away with what he has to date, he probably believes
he can show such contempt without fear of contradiction from the
Russerts of a friendly media.
