State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi's responses to BBC special correspondent Fergal Keane in an interview released today have been described by Myanmar watchers as "regrettable" and "deeply disingenuous". But for the Lady's millions of admirers, it may be difficult to see how.

Here's our recommendation: watch the interview again, and if you still feel satisfied with Aung San Suu Kyi's performance, help yourself to a healthy dose of skepticism from BBC's Myanmar-based reporter Jonah Fisher, who has painstakingly and super-helpfully fact-checked her statements. Check out his comments below.


Thank you, Jonah.
