I am not sure how the game is played anymore. But I believe its got to do with who the ACA (anti-corruption agency) officials report to. If they report to Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the prime minister, then they should have no qualms about getting to the bottom of the Lingam tape fiasco. I mean, they would be overwhelmingly delighted to expose the tape even, for after all, it all happenned during the time of ex-premier Mahathir Mohamad. And we all know, there is no love lost between the two power greedy individuals.

The video clip – taken in 2002 – showed lawyer VK Lingam in a tele-conversation purportedly with Chief Justice Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim on appointing friendly judges to the higher courts. Arent they all friends of Mahathir’s?

But the ACA is not doing Abdullah a favour, are they? Could it be that the ACA is independent minded after all?

It worries me why the ACA keeps on badgering the Opposition – first it was lawyer R. Sivarasa and party worker Sim Tze Sin – to reveal the source of the video clip. Now they want PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim to hand in the original clip or go to jail. Why does the ACA need the original tape when they have enough information in the tape that has been given to them?

It worries me because the whistle blower’s life now is at stake, while the two individuals compromised in the clip are still having a gala time. “Instead of going after the thief, they (ACA) are going after the person who has pointed out the thief,” Opposition member of Parliament and lawyer Karpal Singh.

Which brings me to the BIG picture. Who’s running the country now? If it’s Abdullah, he’s certainly letting go a very good opportunity now to nail his enemies.

And we are certainly going to miss the boat again, as Steven Gan says, of making our country a better place, not the “Lingam’ way, though.

    It seems to be on autopilot. The pilot’s asleep. The ACA seems even frantic in protecting the 2 compromised characters in the tap.

    Susan,
    Could it be that Abdullah Ahmad is trying to make use of Ahmad Fairuz by getting hold of the original tape and later he will keep it or destroy it so that Ahmad Fairuz will owe him one and do his bidding? Otherwise why is AAB so keen to extend Ahmad Fairuz’s tenure as CJ?

    Anything involving UMNO corruptable acts will be defended vigorously by UMNO kingpins. If not…all will be in jail….fighting each other…..so easy to understand. Remember what Samy Vellu said when he was cornered?? Exactly like what I written. He said…if he goes to jail..all will follow him.
    However…wayang kulit can be played by them…a if like Pak Lah wants to get TDM into trouble…far from the truths. All the while..these two selfish corrupted PMs are just fighting to defend themselves…their own reputations.
    Now it has stopped….so the real UMNO behaviors are seen again..united to protect each other…caring two hoots what other thinks of their twisted and cunning minds. They feel they own MALAYSIA.
    Lingham tape you say? They need to make it very difficult ..infact almost impossible to act on it…so it is impossible to prove it is authentic…they know how to twist and turn. You think for country or for UMNO? But if you have something to put Lim Kit Siang or Anwar back to jail….they will use every doubtful reasons to say those are facts and do it fast.

    “How ‘Lingam’ can the ACA get?”

    Like doing a “LameGame”?

    Monty, all this while I thought the fighting (between Tun and Bad) stopped because Tun was in IJN. No?

  6. monsterball says:

    No lah. It’s because Tun’s mouth cannot talk. Once he feels okay…he will star his nonsense until the day he kapook. He has a personal agenda….cannot stop….more so now..ad he knows UMNO cannot touch him…nor dare to expose him…and Pah Lah has limited influences over certain things…especially on corruption matters.

  7. monsterball says:

    Now ACA told Anwar to reveal the source or face jail sentence..producing a false video.
    If Anwar goes t jail…Anwar will say he is doing it to protect the source…and we are back to square one..who is telling the truths.
    But Mahathir had said so much to get Anwar into jail without revealing the source of his informations.
    Go figure it out….how great our country is.

    Well, either which way the opposition and the people will be at the receiving end.
    So, what’s Plan B?

    Welcome Back.

    Plan B? You go figure it out.
    Don’t tell me you need to be spoon fed…..hahahahahaha

  11. monsterball says:

    Philip Lau….Sorry was rude to you long time ago. Susan told me how nice an old gentleman you are.

    If V.K. Linggam and a King Cobra crosses a road, who do you beat 1st?

    For me, Linggam 1st then I would searh for Sami Velu, but certainly the snake 1st, if all King Cobras are BLACKS……

  13. alfred ho says:

    excellent articl. you certainly echoed my thoughts. sent an email to Marina to urge her to impress upon her father to right the many wrongs towards his fellow citizens; but unfortunately, she chose to ignore my email. anyway Susan, welcome back and it looks like you have a big fan going by the name of Monsterball. cheers.

  14. monsterball says:

    hahahaha ..alfred ho. You may not know….I am a fan of yours too….besides admiring your wonderful cheerful attitude.
    Don’t waste your time writing to Marina. She is suppose to be our country’s greatest Human Right lady….but go judge her actions..thoughts for past one year. They are all the same….great cunning actors.
    Harrison…I will kill both straight away…waste no time…just kill both…then look for the few anaks and complete the job.

  15. monsterball says:

    But for me..I need to cage a toothless snake name Vadez…if I can find him..as he is threatening me…..and I don’t like threats…empty talks…no actions. Cage him….and present to the zoo is best.

  16. monsterball says:

    Harrison…Did you watch the Lingham tape carefully?
    Notice how he walk and talk…like a braggart…with full of confidence?
    Notice he said…we shall meet somewhere…no one knows?
    If that tape is not genuine..that Malaysia really are greatest fantasy script writers and actors…no natural and convincing.
    We know it is genuine…..but leave it to UMNO..nothing is right…if it means exposing them.
    Frankly speaking….I think Pak Lah is doing his best to clean up dirt…but have no strong support from those clean…but cowards Ministers…with not much influences. Those with influences are cunning and smart to diplomatically going against him….especially his so call right hand man…NAJIB.
    Have we not seen enough of UMNO cunningness and hypocracies?

  17. monsterball says:

    I meant to write….’If the tape is not genuine..THAN Malaysia really HAVE greatest fantasy script writers and actors….SO natural and convincing”

    For 30 years the actual Deep Throats(witnesses)in the Watergate scandal remained a mystery. The weight of evidence from the technical aspect was enough to bring down Nixon.

    In Bolehland however, it seems the cart must go before the donkey! Are we all jackasses?

    Of course you are right Monty. For those whose still think Marina Mahathir is an ANGEL from Heaven sent
    by God to redress his Old Man’s sins, they better beleive that all their neighbours are all E.T.s.
