Pak Lah's setting-up Anwar and Najib?

By logging Anwar against Najib, Pak Lah hope to enthrenched himself as UMNO President.

Anwar versus Najib

That was the frontpages of Dato Seri Abdullah's private family newspapers, New Straits Times and Berita Harian, and few other political tabloids yesterday.

Whilst, TV3 gave a lot of coverage to Najib's press conference yesterday evening, since Dato Seri Najib revealed he met Saiful few days before his police report.

Anything reported by Media Prima these days should be taken with lots of salt and requires some analysis to understand the real intentions.

Few recent events and Anwar's interview with Malaysiakini.com points to a high possibility that Pak Lah has a hand in it. It confirms the suspicion that by being the most to benefit, Pak Lah may have planned to heightened the political rivalry between Anwar and Najib with the hope he will go unchallenged.

This time he is more ambitous and in a hurry. He needs to rid of them both. Khairy maybe picking up steam in his Ketua Pemuda campaign and could be positioned as successor.

Possible Related Events

The timeliness of this new political battle coincide with Najib's cryptic and veiled annoucement that he may go for the UMNO Presidency. Najib's insinuation came just few days after UMNO had announced the commencement of the Code of Ethics on campaigning for the December UMNO Election.

There was a big question on the Code in UMNO circle. Although the announcement of the code was made by Tan Sri Muhyiddin, it is seen by many in UMNO as curtailing the advancement of Tengku Razaleigh. There were consternation towards Muhyiddin but in actual fact, it is advantageous towards Abdullah.

Abdullah continued to meeting UMNO Branch Chief and on last weekend, it was from Perlis. Khairy was visiting and pictured meeting Pahang UMNO Youth and was reported making remark of his chances looking bright.

The sudden revelation of Anwar's alleged sodomy act come to a surprise to many. There was no rumours of investigation like the last time around. Generally, most find it hard to believe it will occur again. Anwar is given a lot of benefit of the doubt.

Saiful's Link

Reading through Anwar's interview with Malaysiakini.com on Anwaribrahimblog.com, there was a startling revelation of his account of Saiful.

True to my intuition in yesterday's posting on Pak Lah as the main beneficiary from this sodomy allegation, Anwar revealed Saiful's link with the Biro Tatanegara (BTN).

Extracts of Anwar's remark about Saiful in the interview is as below:

"Saiful at that time was still working with you?

Yes, yes. It is really, as you say, a breach of security. The three main staff - Nik Nazmi (Nik Ahmad), Sim (Tze Tzin) and Nurul Izzah (Anwar) - left to contest in the elections. Rahimi (Osman) was holding the fort. And of course Syed Husin (Ali) in the office, Ibrahim (Yaacob) and Din Merican.

The first to go around to contact the states and divisions, that was Rahimi. Then he brought in Saiful at the last moment as a volunteer. Saiful approached me, although he was known to be in Biro Tatanegara (civic consciousness bureau) and an Umno outfit before that.

I didn’t know, he actually started off as a driver, bringing even (former Anwar political secretary) Nasharuddin (Jalil)’s son (Salman) who was killed in a (hit and run) road accident - that’s still questionable until now. The case is closed. I want to reopen the case - the circumstances of the ‘murder’ or the death is still very questionable.

So later on, Rahimi was using Saiful a bit more, there were two of them. Then I had Sim to come back and we had another person, Farhash (Wafa Salvador) who just came back from London but because of the transition - that was it.

But I didn’t know about his (Saiful’s) connection. Because there were so many emails from his old friends attacking him, I called him in, “What’s this?”. He said, “Sir, swear to God, it was my connection with Najib’s outfit when I was in Uniten (Universiti Tenaga Nasional) and then some of them became my personal friends”. I said, “Okay”. We actually take things a bit easy."

Another extract below:

Anwar explained that Saiful was first taken in as a party volunteer and was asked to be a driver.

“After weeks, he came slowly into the establishment. Until the day he left, he was still not a permanent member of the staff … We just pay him a part-time allowance,” said Anwar in a 30-minute interview at the PKR headquarters this morning.

Conceding that it was a breach of security, he revealed that Saiful was privy to some of the sensitive communications involving defections from other parties.

“He was also receiving calls from Sabah and Sarawak. And they (BN) know how and why … in such a way to pre-empt my announcement on the four crossovers.”
And, another extract below:

Do you admit that it was a mistake in your office not to have scanned Saiful’s background first before taking him in?

Yes, but he was not taken in as a staff. He was taken in as a volunteer, who at that time was very critical (of BN). He said he is a supporter and he would “die for Anwar”. So they took him. After weeks, then he came slowly into the establishment. Until the day he left, he was still not a permanent member of the staff. He was not. We just pay him a part-time allowance.

But you shot down criticisms from people who questioned his background.

Yeah, you know it is my character. When you say that he was terrible when he was in Uniten (Universiti Tenaga Nasional), he was in the BTN (Biro Tatanegara or civic consciousness bureau), an ardent racist, pro-Najib, I said, “Okay, that was two years ago. He does not have access to other views. Is there any evidence if he’s doing anything (of this sort) now?” That’s me (laughs).

It is a mistake in hindsight. He was not taken in as a full-time member and so there is no vetting exercise. We don’t actually take some criticisms from his university mates or blogs seriously. It is inexcusable for my establishment, but overall we have thousands of volunteers but somehow he got into the establishment.

Now if you look back as to how it happened - a day before (he was accepted as a PKR volunteer) there was communication between him and an Anwar Ibrahim Club guy in London battling because he (Saiful) was defending Umno. The following day, he saw this staff of mine (Rahimi) and said he was a die-hard supporter of Anwar. So he started off as a driver. He was driving a car, so he came in for 10 days as a driver."
BTN Pro-Najib?

Since Anwar used to controlled BTN as Deputy Prime Minister and was remembered for undertaking a major reshuffling in the Agency, he should be well aware that BTN as well as few organisations like GPMS, Belia 4B, Pekida, etc are Pak Lah's network of cadre.

As opined in yesterday's posting, Anwar has a "pact" with Abdullah. Anwar to take on Najib and Abdullah to take on Dr Mahathir.

Sticking to the "agreed script", Anwar point the link between Saiful with BTN to Najib. This is certainly a giveaway indication that the whole episode has Pak Lah's hand behind.

Despite Anwar keeping himself close to the agreed arrangement, Pak Lah's latest move could be intended to "kill two bird with one stone".

If we are to take Anwar's account of the event in the interview in good faith, he seemed to be caught surprised with the latest allegation. This culminated into his over reaction to run to the Turkish Embassy and the series of denials, lawsuit, and countermoves.

The announcement by the US State Department created bigger problem for him thus needing a bigger sensational news of a Statutory Declaration by PI Balasundram to deviate attention.

Now that Bala has withdrawn some questionable allegations in his SD, it will be a new problem for Anwar. He will have to get some MPs to jump ship fast or make further revelation on something more sensational. The best bet is it will still be related to Najib.

Hang To Dry

In yesterday's press statement, Abdullah only stated that Najib had explained about the Altantuya murder case to him and he has decided to remain silence since the case is still ongoing court case.

He did not gave any words of support for Najib and even a correction to the earlier wrongly worded statement that he believe Najib and Rosmah are innocent.

Abdullah did not touch anything on the sodomy allegation or any form of criticism on Anwar's theatric to hide at the Turkish Embassy or the US State Department remarks as show of support for Najib.

As one former UMNO Johor youth activist and Najib's man described, Abdullah left Najib hanging to dry yesterday. His instinct says Abdullah has a hand in this latest episode to smear Anwar and Najib in one go. This explains his willingness to give assurances on Anwar's safety and police and prosecutor to to act professionally.

And, Abdullah showed somewhat displeased by a question on his family link to Saiful mentioned in a blog, namely Rocky Bru's but did not deny or affirm it.

Perhaps, Saiful should perform the Mubahalah alone. Swear to God he is not involved to set up Anwar and Najib.

But it's never new news that Najib will eventually be going for the top post, so for Pak Lah to do this NOW is a tad too unwise, and c'mon give his team a lil more credit than than? really, why strain to link pull draw everything back to Pak Lah, instead of focusing the true mastermind behind all this - Anwar himself? it's his one man show, whatever the merits of the 1998 charge, he's recycling it to play victim and peddle for support from ppl. It worked previously, all the more reason for it to work this time, drawing on the frustration the ppl are having with the BN government.

Sori I missed the questionmark on the title.

The link and my sources is giving clearer indications that it is Dolah

Is Anwar in cohort on this?

I believe he just realised that dolah has decayed on him.

His delivery is late.

The longer Najib persevere, the more sympathy he gets.

I am just saying it as I see it.

You are entitled to your own opinion.

Hello voice,

I dont think that Pak Lah will do reckless actions. I must admit that he now has been kept quiet due to the fact that both of the politicians are barking each other. I believe that he realises this and it would not be wise for him too show his voice much as the public is starting to lose confidence with the federal government already.

He (Pak Lah) must take actions rather than just showing himself in the press often which only the public would make impression that he talks loud but with no actions taken. He realises that the country is in a critical conditions and he must take actions to prevent the federal government from falling apart.

I believe that there is no valuable resources which relates AAB to the whole political scene happened.

I also believe that for the time being he must try hard to maintain the peace and the economy of the country because of these politician's scene created awful scene and also prepare for the worst, the civil wars resulted from these chaos from both parties.

Eventhough AAB does not possess the genius brain like Tun M does, he would not be wise enough to kill 2 birds with a stone.

Voicey, another theory that certainly would silence others, and I put my money on this.
But if this theory happens to have some substance; Badawi, Khairy, Kamal and Kali have to terminated with silver bullets as they clearly are demons in the mask of man.

Khairy here, laughing quietly behind everything, hehe said...

Sex and the C4

Sodomy is a useful word
recently said and heard,
in Malaysian homes and offices
it’s all about famous orifices.
What is going on, you wonder
when Bala steals the thunder,
finger pointing the magic word
to the delight of a horny herd
Organs united, names forgotten?
VIPs are really rotten
Saiful he knows and did not know
doubts about Aminah begin to grow
of whose loose lips he was afraid
but liked her other end instead;
of course he knew it wasn't right
but it felt so good and tight!
You could not hump like Greeks
the Hindenburg’s fat cheeks;
what her hubby found so succulent
was making Rosmah trucculent.
And so she thought, the time was due
for a nice Mongolian barbecue.
Enter the analyst, not so anal,
who found the girl too banal;
fearing supernatural harm
from her juicy feminine charm,
he hired Bala straightaway
to keep the honeytrap at bay
but private dicks were of no match
for Aminah's superlative snatch
and now that Najib had had his fill,
he would not share the till;
right after the submarine deal,
Aminah's fate he would seal.
Now Rosmah had one idea
on how to kenakan dia
"Let’s bomb the bombshell,
let's send her to hell."
Thus perished the hapless beauty
after translation and booty duty;
now Rosmah’s ass was happy
until one blogger got yappy;
this Hindenburg nearly caught fire
yet to sue she has no desire.
But Najib's part in this murder
will travel much further;
despite his media actions
and one or two retractions,
some questions will remain
a big part of his bane–
how did Altantuya really die?
and why did he have to lie?
Did he pay off Bala savvily,
or threaten to C4 his family?
What acts could be more despised?
With his money, we’re not surprised;
after all, he's such a bully beast,
to him and him alone, at least,
magic words that cannot apply–
are useful for making rivals die.

i belief that dsai did it this time. What conspirisy is he talking about. He got to admit that he is a homosexual no point in denial. Deep in Wan Azizah mind she knew her husband is a homosexual. Being a doctor she knew by watching dsai traits. who else do we expect saipol to report to. Wan Azizah did not want to belief him.

My Say
