The Dalai Lama on the ’08 Games:

The Dalai Lama said Thursday that he supported Beijing’s hosting of the Summer Olympics, but he insisted that pro-Tibet demonstrators had the right to voice their opinions during the international torch relay as long as they refrained from violence.

Tomorrow morning he’ll speak to Ann Curry on NBC’s Today Show. [Photo: Dai Kurokawa/European Pressphoto Agency]
