What can we say about Anwar Ibrahim?
He had recently announced that Malaysian government is accusing the captain of the missing #MH370 flight as a potential hijacker.
This act which can only be described as an utterly vulgar political misinformation and distortion of facts, is a genuine act of desperation befitting someone who is grasping for any political mileage.
To make matters worse, CNN is now a party to it.
What he just did, not only unfair to the running investigation, but also disrespectful to the family members of the pilot, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah (53). Anwar Ibrahim had just used this unfortunate event and the unlucky pilot as one of his political chess pieces to further his sadistic agenda.
There is no realm outside the realm of profanity can best describe this latest manoeuvre of his. “Despicable”, “rotten”, “shameful” could not capture the very essence of what he had just did.
In the interview linked below, Anwar Ibrahim asserted his disinformation efforts by saying it is unfair for the Government to say that the pilot would commit such a thing (hijacking) without any investigation.
That was pure lie. In every press conference, we were told that investigations are being made by the authorities and all sundry know that the government have not suspected anyone. They are investigating all credible leads and all passengers and crew members are subjected to thorough investigation. No witch hunt, no finger pointing.
But Anwar Ibrahim thinks that everything is all about him.
He is saying that the government is attacking him about his connection with the pilot just to cover up the ‘incompetence and failure’ in handling the crisis. So far, in all the PCs involved, nobody from the authorities had attacked him. His name was never mentioned.
The CNN reporter failed to raise the issue that the speculation was first brought up by a UK tabloid. In fact, the reporter stupidly asked Anwar Ibrahim why did the government throw this kind of narrative to the public when in the first place, the government of Malaysia is not doing that at all.
Is CNN employing run of the mill reporters these days? Must be. Since they could swallow whatever Anwar Ibrahim is pushing down their throats with glee. If they want to contact the government, they should just get the facts from the press conference directly.
But CNN is acting like a below average news network – not doing its research and homework. The speculation that the missing pilot could have a political motive was hatched by a UK tabloid called the Daily Mail. In that said article which was actually filled with speculation, conjectures, unverified information from unnamed sources, Daily Mail had alluded that the pilot could have hijacked the plane.
This story is the basis of rumours which is then used by Anwar Ibrahim to make a wild allegations towards the government. And of course we have The Star and all their stupid editors lapping up the conspiracy theory by republishing the story for Malaysians to read.
The fact is, all aspects of the missing flight are currently being investigated.
Anwar Ibrahim must stop being delusional and paranoid. We think he is losing the plot. All megalomaniacs will suffer this kind of downfall in credibility. He must admit that in this particular crisis, he is not relevant. What kind of input can he provide to help find the missing aircraft?
Like the wise saying goes – “if you have nothing good to say, better not say anything at all”.
