KSP Government

Imagine... one day you are as pogi as Bin Laden. Suddenly, the police storm your house and arrest you because they believe you are the real Bin Laden. And not only that, the President of the Philippines broadcast you face to the media saying "Bin Laden is captured!!!" .

Well, it may happen to anybody.

Last week Antonio Gara, a Subanon, was mistaken to be Radulan Sahiron the Abu Sayyaf chief of staff. The special anti-terror team from Manila captured the indigenous person and immediately informed the PNP chief which in turn told GMA. GMA without hesitation announced it to the whole wide world.

What's wrong with this.

First, assuming the Sahiron was indeed captured, GMA should not, immediately, announce the capture of a terrorist to the whole world. The captive should, first, be identifed and then interrogated for vital information will lead to the arrest of other terrorists. After no more information is extracted and other terrorist is already captured or the information is no longer useful, the terrorist may now be presented to the media. Its very basic. But the President immediately announced it.

Second, the capturing of Sahiron is already a two-year operation.Yet they still don't how the real Sahiron look like and which part of his hand is amputated. The "hardworking intelligence operatives spent days and nights" inq7 for this operation. Yet, they captured the wrong Sahiron. What if they shoot Gara? Will they just say sorry? No wonder they were not able to capture Sahiron. They are not sure how he looks like now.

And lastly, GMA no longer know which information is ready for release to the media and which is not. She listen to gossips and believe in flimsy evidence.

I believe the president is an intellegent person. She got a PhD from UP. But she seems to be very hungry for good news from her government. She has become very desperate for information that will divert the attention of the media from her. Ironically, she gave the wrong news.

One good piece of advice, make sure you don't look like any of the terrorist. You may be in the President's TV program.

Stagnation and Overfeeding
A couple of things that have become clear from following dozens of feeds: Most of the popular weblogs that everyone links to have been stagnant and complacent for a long time.
