After the Aquino administration and the U.S. State Department used the Marcosian tactic of keeping official enactments a secret by making the provisions of the “Ph-US Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement” top secret for two days even after the agreement has been signed, publicly, with no explanation why the provisions were not accessible to the public (the dictator Marcos had secret presidential decrees that contained short-cuts of criminal procedure and penal provisions that military and government prosecutors pulled out in the middle of habeas corpus proceedings to keep political prisoners in jail; not even the U.P. Law Center had copies of such secret decrees), finally, the Official Gazette (c/o Manolo Quezon III) uploaded a PDF file of the agreement last night. Here it is, in this link:
The Inquirer page one editor used the photo and simply put the photo credit “Malacanang photo”
(rightclicked from inquirer.net used here non-commercially for review and criticism purposes)
— ASK THEM FOR THE LINK WHERE THEY RIGHTCLICKED THE PHOTO FROM — THAT LINK EXISTS IN THE TOOL BAR OF A WINDOW IN MY COMPUTER BECAUSE I DOWNLOADED IT, THEN, IT WAS DELETED BY THE OFFICIAL GAZETTE FB, i posted the link for about an hour in my blog, then, changed my mind and removed the link because i knew that the big media organizations would use it wantonly without acknowledgement of how they found it — Hay naku, ganyan talaga ang mga taong makapal ang mukha, ako pa ang kelangang magpasensiya sa kanila (C’est la vie, that’s what thick-skinned people are made of, we have to make allowances for them). Well, youknow where you saw it first.
And you also know kung sino ang mga walang delicadeza (who are unethical).
