No legacy for Bartlet in Central Asia

Qumar and the Republic of Equatorial Kundu won’t issue visas to New Zealanders. So I was very excited to visit Kazakhstan, the other country with a recent modern history that has captivated the world.

I keep asking Kazakhs about their views but they won’t engage. They won’t talk about the assassination of President Isitov, how they felt about American occupation to settle tensions between the Chinese and Russians. And, infuriatingly, they won’t tell me what happened after season seven ended.

It’s just like the mass Chinese amnesia following Tiananmen Square.
