Bizarre Definitions of Treason

The Prosecutor's Office for the Taiwan High Court is investigating whether KMT vice-chairman Chiang Ping-kun acted illegally by “privately signing an accord with a foreign government” during his mainland visit. The KMT retaliates, saying that if the PRC government is “foreign,” then President Chen committed treason when he showed a note from Jiang Zemin and said that he maintains communication channels with the mainland authorities during the 2004 presidential campaign.

While I sympathize with the KMT's motivations, their readiness to use the “if I'm such-and-such then you are too” argument is starting to get on my nerves.
