Rather laughable is the high expectations that the Usual Suspects of petty Philippine politics harbour of what may be revealed by WikiLeaks about the Philippines. According to an Inquirer.net "report", Filipino "militants" expect the information from Julian Assange's infamous site to "reveal detailed information exposing the extent of US involvement in the country's internal affairs" and another bozo crowed how "never before have the secret workings of US foreign policy been opened to such public scrutiny".
As for me, I more of wonder why it is only now, several weeks into this unfolding media circus that the Inquirer.net comes up with headline news about WikiLeaks. I think it is because it's been confirmed in leaked memos exchanged between Australian and United States diplomats that the Philippines -- get this -- is a basket case.
Come on now. Did we really need WikiLeaks to tell us that?
Obviously it is news to many Inquirer.net readers.
