Deputy Secretary of State Dan Baer wanted to meet Nguyen Van Dai and Pham Hong Son, two dissidents well known to Western governments and rights organizations when he was in Vietnam. They have each served four-year prison terms in the past. They are under frequent surveillance and are often harassed, yet remain publicly committed to challenging the party, prepared to accept the risks to them and their family in doing so. (AP Photo)
