But undoubtedly it’s humongous news in Malaysia, depressingly so for the PKR camp and maybe a joyful revelation for BN.
But let’s examine in more details where or who the source was. The Yanks heard it from the Aussies; the Aussies heard it from the Sings, in particular LKY; the Sings claimed they extracted it from ‘technical’ intelligence, meaning electronic interception or even land line eavesdropping.
[don’t think the Sings are above that; my Uncs told me that in earlier days, Malaysian military people on holidays in Sing had their briefcases, suitcases and bags covertly opened if these were left unattended in hotel rooms. How did they know? Some played James Bond wakakaka].
As Anwar himself said, the source could well be Special Branch (SB). Disinformation by the SB means they deliberately issued a transmission, knowing it would be intercepted (and wanting it to be intercepted), that carried the so-called 'intelligence'.
So that disinformation could have been one of the following:
(a) S: “Datuk, he shacked me liao” on a cell phone, or
(b) MH: “Dapat dia. Dia dah hentam S sehingga sai (sh*t) pun ta’ada lagi”
But if that’s the case, and the act was
Thus I am inclined to believe that more need to be investigated, that is, assuming you’re interested in that sort of stuff.
Mind you, the above arguments doesn't mean I support Anwar Ibrahim wakakaka. I just want to be fair.
