Wikileaks: What Do the China-Africa Cables Really Tell Us?

Chinese President Hu Jintao and President Kibaki of Kenya
Hu Jintao is heading to Washington. We're not sure what will be on the agenda, but we do know that China's engagement in Africa is a source of some concern for the US government. We've all see that Ambassador Johnnie Carson believes that China has "no morals" in Africa. But a closer look at the Wikileaks cables reveals some surprises about China, the US, and at least some parts of Africa. Ryan Briggs and I discuss this at the Royal African Society's African Arguments.
