Li Ao Said What?

Depending on which report you read, Taiwanese author and politician Li Ao said any number of seemingly conflicting things on his visit to China. For just a flavor of the possibilities, I'll offer some headlines:So what did Li Ao actually say? Instead of spending all day trying to form a composite from reading those very different articles, just read the transcripts. EastSouthWestNorth has been kind enough to offer English translations of his speeches at both Beijing University and Tsinghua University. For anyone interested in China-Taiwan issues, these make quite an interesting read.
