Dianne Feinstein: U.S. Won’t Defend Taiwan – NewsMax

From NewsMax (link):

In a sharp break with official U.S. policy towards the two Chinas, Sen. Dianne Feinstein announced on Thursday that America is under no obligation to defend Taiwan if the tiny island is attacked by Communist China.

“It is important to point out a common misconception,” Feinstein told a gathering of Chinese-American business leaders in San Francisco, in quotes picked up by the San Jose Mercury News.

“Nowhere does the [Taiwan Relations Act] explicitly require the U.S. to go to war with the mainland over Taiwan,” she insisted.
