|Nudged to grant Anwar that meeting?|
Jusuf Kalla and Anwar Ibrahim were buddies in high places once but today Pak Jusuf has certainly burned his bridges. The former Vice President of Indonesia, in his latest attack on Dr Mahathir's former No 2, relates how Anwar allegedly got Washington to put pressure on Indonesian President Bambang Susilo Yudhoyono to grant the Malaysian Opposition leader a meeting.
Pak Jusuf also exposes Anwar's links to the people in the Philippines behind the Lahad Datu intrusion, including "a large Philippines-based company" and still Anwar's friend Joseph Estrada.
The allegations aer so severe I don't think Anwar can afford to maintain his elegant silence. Being furious alone is not enough when you're dealing with a big shot like Jusuf Kalla.
On the same subject, I agree with Apanama (Commission of Inquiry into Lahad Datu ... in the Philippines?) that Foreign Minister Anifah Aman should meet his Philippines counterpart to trash out the matter. In fact, in view of JK's revelations, it should be made a tripartite meeting, involving Jakarta as well. or the whole of Asean, for that matter. Countries have gone to war for less.
