Why are the Americans so responsive and defensive, when it comes to Anwar?

 

The Anwar Ibrahim sodomy scandal, second round after exactly ten years with similar charactersitics, which is the most explosive item on the local news hit a new all time level this morning. The Americans promptly issued a caution on the case, pre-empting a full Police investigation yet to be concluded.

AFP has the story:

US cautions over sex charges against Malaysian opposition leader

6 hours ago

WASHINGTON (AFP) — The United States said Monday it would oppose any politically motivated investigation or prosecution of Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim facing fresh sex misconduct charges.

Anwar is being investigated over new allegations of sodomy, Malaysian police said Saturday, the same charge that saw him jailed six years until 2004, when the charge was overturned.

The former deputy premier accused the government of concocting the new sex claims by a 23-year-old male aide and had briefly sought sanctuary at the Turkish embassy in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday, saying he had received threats and feared for his life.

“The main point for us is that the rule of law needs to stand above politics,” said Tom Casey, spokesman for the US State Department.

“And we would certainly oppose any use of law enforcement or judicial procedures for anything other than legitimate purposes of the law,” he said.

Noting that Anwar had previously faced similar charges and that his conviction was ultimately overturned, Casey said, “So, we would hope that there’s not a pattern here.

“But, certainly, we would be concerned that anything that is done be done in a way that is appropriate, that is a legitimate investigation of charges that might exist under Malaysian law, and would not be anything that was a politically motivated investigation or prosecution,” he said.

The new charges erupted after Anwar stormed back into Malaysian politics in March general elections that handed the opposition a third of parliamentary seats and five states.

Since then, Anwar has said he is poised to form a new government with the help of defectors from the ruling coalition, undermining Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who has faced repeated demands to step down over the polls debacle.

The charismatic opposition leader said the new charges would be “a repeat of the 1998 fiasco” when he was hit with the sodomy and corruption counts that were widely seen as politically motivated.

Anwar said he was targeted again because he had evidence that the police and attorney-general had fabricated evidence in the original sex trial.

Premier Abdullah denied any involvement in the new charges.

“We had no plans to do anything to him just because he says he’s made a political comeback,” he said.

Malaysian Criminal Investigation Department chief Bakri Zinin said Anwar’s aide had personally written the report against his boss detailing an incident at a condominium in an upmarket Kuala Lumpur suburb.

*********************************************************

The Police report that Saiful Bukhary Azlan made less than then 90 hours ago had not even properly investigated yet. Anwar himself had not been interviewed yet.

Funny thing, why is the Americans so responsive and at a point, very defensive when it comes to Anwar? Isn’t this jumping the gun about this case being politically motivated, instead of the criminal nature as it is, being something to be weary about?

The fact is that, Anwar is up his usual old tricks again, with the sandiwara and focusing on the foreign medias in getting his skewed story through. Ten years ago, doing exactly that, Anwar pre-emptively demonized the law enforcement and judiciary system entirely even before proper due process of the law took place and giving due consideration.

His close associations with the Neo Cons of the West, especially the Jewish power-makers in Washington D.C. did a lot of damage of Malaysian Government rapport internationally. It started with US Ambassador John R. Mallot advising Vice President Al Gore to support Anwar’s ‘Refomasi’ movements during the APEC Summit in Kuala Lumpur, weeks after Anwar was sacked. We at  BigDogDotCom remembered so well Kuala Lumpur US Embassy’s close observation of Anwar’s political engagements in by-elections last year. Of course, we shall not forget the Israelis close interest on Anwar’s political developments.

Read also Rocky Bru’s about possible neighbour’s intelligence assistance to Anwar and Malaysia Today’s article on Anwar and his relations to foreign powers. Even Australian media is buying into the story about Anwar’s was just about to go back into mainstream politics as an election candidate when this story about him sodomizing is brought up to kill his political career. British Reuters talk him him making a counter attack against his complainant.

The past few years saw Anwar had been touring few times over all over Europe, North America and Singapore, speaking at various forums and events demonizing Malaysia, some insediously. He was in Brussels, the heart of European Union three times the past two years, doing exactly that.

*Updated 1130pm

The Foreign Ministry will issue a note of protest to the US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur for the statements made in this explosive scandal this morning. PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said today as describing the warning as “interference in the affairs of the country”.

Bernama.com has the report:

Washington’s Warning On Anwar’s Case: Malaysia To Send Protest Note

 

 

KUALA LUMPUR, July 1 (Bernama) — Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi Tuesday asked Wisma Putra to send a protest note to Washington following the warning issued by the United States (US) to Malaysia concerning the allegation of sodomy against Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Describing the warning as interference in the affairs of the country, the Prime Minister said Malaysia had its own government, laws and enforcement and knew what needed to be done with regard to the case.

“It is a statement which tries to interfere in our country… we will certainly ensure that any investigation will be carried out properly, fairly and without cruelty to anyone.

“That is certainly our objective and practice,” he told reporters after a 45-minute meeting with PKR president, who is also Anwar’s wife, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and daughter Nurul Izzah at his office at Parliament House, here.

Abdullah said this when asked to comment on the statement by US State Department spokesman, Tom Casey, Monday that the US was against the investigation or charge against Anwar, which it described as politically motivated.

The Prime Minister said such a statement reflected that the US was prejudiced against Malaysia, including the legal system and its enforcement.

Abdullah also said that it was not proper for the US to issue such a statement.

Meanwhile in MELAKA, Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam reminded the United States (US) against interfering in the internal affairs of Malaysia pertaining to the sodomy allegedly committed by Anwar.

Mohd Ali, who is also Melaka Chief Minister, said the US cannot interfere in the affairs of Malaysia which is an independent and sovereign nation.

“We (Malaysia) are an independent, free and democratic country, we are not a colony of the United States, so there is no reason for them to give us an ultimatum,” he told reporters after a function, here Tuesday.

Anwar’s former aide had lodged a police report on Saturday, alleging that he was sodomised by the former deputy prime minister in a condominium in Damansara, Kuala Lumpur. Anwar had denied the allegation by Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, 23, and had filed a suit against the man.

  1. ANWAR DID IT AGAIN !!!

    People, judge ourself who this guy is. Who are behind him. Their “darling”

  2. This time He is a complete ‘GONE CASE’

    1998 he almost becomes PM before he got caught.
    2008 he almost becomes PM before he got caught again.

    Malysian has been saved twice by his own trapped.
    Otherwise we will be a laughing stock to have a Rapist as PM.

    HAAAAAAA……………HAAAAAAAAAAA…..HAAAAAAAAAAAA !!

  3. Free market !!

    Anwar believes in dismantling whatever protective barriers the Government has put up to protect local companies. Despite the fact that our population relative to Indonesia and Thailand is small, we have a strong middle class and good infrastructure. Attractive enough for free marketeers to prise open the local economy.

    Remember ’98 ? Had Mahathir not put a stop to his plan to impose IMF remedies on Malaysia, we’d see a lot more companies being hammered by high interest rates.

    Anwar in a speech he gave in US was willing to see Malaysian companies being closed down and people losing jobs. He calls it “creative destruction”.

    The same man who claims he champions the welfare of the rakyat thought nothing of the rakyat when he made that speech.

    Yet, people persist that he is the saviour. Better him than Badawi, some might say.

  4. You never failed to amaze me with your thought.
    so narrow minded.

  5. Hmmm… worst! Sodommist PM. (is it the right word?)

    If he become Malaysia’s PM (hopefully not), then KL will become the haven for gays right! Watch out guys!

  6. America sides him because they condone and celebrate Butt-Fu*king. They don’t know that in Malaysia unlike other countries where Muslims butt-fu*k like Turkey, forbids fornacation with the same sex.

  7. Oh oh big brother watching over-time…Telling M’sia how to behave. A prelude to running this nation?

    Over to you Rais & Syed Hamid.

    ———————————————

    Ya kah, Big Dog? And where have you just arrived from? Mars?

    The chief of the law enforcement agency, no less, brutalized Anwar before any investigations back in 1998.

    As I type here, evidence of the present AG’s and IGP’s role in fabricating evidence is circulating throughout the world. Two more Mahathir stooges are about to bite the dust.

    You know, in a way I feel very sorry for you Mahathir worshipers, because the cherry on top of the icing of this cake is eventually going to be your idol thrown in the slammer in all his naked glory. Which explains why he is running around the country trying to play the racial card.

    The Americans have every right to offer their opinion on what is clearly a case of political baloney, which has a past precedent of being a kangaroo trial, held in a kangaroo court, run by a kangaroo judge, based on evidence fabricated by Mahathir’s running dogs.

    Maybe when Mahathir gets his day in court, you all may hear whimpers of support and sympathy from good buddy Mugabe.

  9. Relax lah The Watcher do not get all worked up, do not be like your Great Hero Brother Anwar jumping up and down like his pants is on fire. This is NOT a POLITICAL CASE lah its personal and involves a Malaysian Citizen who reported that your Hero Brother Anwar allegedly butt-fucked him, faham? this means this is a criminal case and if you are not aware already, butt-fucking or sodomising a person is wrong under the Malaysian Penal Code.

    By the way, a police report is NOT evidencelah, you kurang sekolahkah. Anwar’s so called evidence of fabrication Still needs to be investigated and brought to your so called kangaroo trial, kangaroo court judge etc. you think can lepas kah with all these kangaroos. Anyway, seems you are so fond of kangaroos go to Australialah plenty of sheilas and billys there for you to oogle at, I caution butt fucking a kangaroo might be tricky a bit.

    I am not the least surprised that the American Government are worried about Brother Anwar, after all he is their favourite Asian Stooge. When a Stooge is in need the Americans are friends indeed.

    Just waiting to have a good laugh at the silly nonsense that Anwar Worshippers has to throw about Tun Mahathir, I do not think he will ever be tried in court though, Tun Mahathir is a very careful person, for sure he would not be caught with his pants down, unlike this famous guy I know who is hero worshipped by many.

  10. Penyokong Tun ke,Penyokong Pak Lah ke,Penyokong Anwar ke,kita semua mesti relax.Kalau Anwar berani sumpah junjung Quran dan kalau dia tipu dia terkeluar dari islam dan ditimpah bencana baru rakyat macam saya bolih percaya.Buat dalam masjid live telecast lagi baru betul.Kalau setakat tak mengaku semua penjenayah buat macam itu.Biar Allah yang tentukan.

  11. Maybe the death threat could be true after all….

    It’s not coming from Anwars opponents.

    Yes, those AH LONGs from the CIA / USA.

    A lot of resources has been spent promoting Anwar.

    That’s why he quickly dodge.

    Maybe he knew the police report will screw him this time.

    And the CIA too knew it will screw him.

    All their investment in Anwar will go down the drain.

    So PLAN B, says CIA

    assassinate Anwar!

    This will backfire BN. All fingers will be pointing to BN/UMNO

    All Malaysian will be outraged and rejected BN

    PR wins next election. Wan Azizah become PM. Puppet PM

    says CIA, works everytime.

    Just like in Pakistan (Bhuto) and Philippine ( Aquino)

    Whaddaya think????

  12. Wow, at 60 and he’s so strong on it, what a monstrous sexually and queer appetite this former DPM has.

    The US way of life, guaranteeing to protect their citizens at all cost, every where and every moment– nobody can harm their citizens (DSAI is one of them) in other countries while they can do otherwise. Let the US take DSAI away on the red carpet and never to return here to his homeland. Such character will never be a leader in this country, NEVER.

    I am certain solid proof will come out soon enough that will make those who like to watch wish they were the ones enjoying the fun at their butts. And the Watcher will climax explosively as he watches his dream vaporize; bye bye Malaysian Malaysia.

  13. What I think is that a lot of smokescreen have been erected by the Anwar camp.

    First they said that this is a conspiracy and 1998 all over again. What’s wrong with such statement is that this time around the allegation and subsequently a police report was lodged by a normal citizen. One of us, not a high ranking government officer, not a minister, not an MP or something like that.

    Then there was that charade saying that his life might be in danger so they have to hide him. The hiding place turn out to be a foreign embassy. when provoked, they said that there was a clear and present danger on his life so he might seek political asylum at the said embassy.

    After that there was a defamation suit made against Saiful which they will add a statement of claims. How much do you think that they can get from one young Saiful?

    Next, Anwar himself went and made a police report against the IGP and AG citing that they tampered with evidence during his court case against Tan Sri Rahim.

    Now we’ve seen the PKR machinery is putting in a lot of resources in trying to discredit the credibility of Saiful and said that Saiful is indeed a mole working for DPM Dato’ Sri Najib after Najib has made a statement denying knowing Saifu personally eventhough Saiful had come to seek his recommendation for a scholarship.

    In addition, Tan Sri Syed Hamid said that there is a concern about Saiful’s safety.

    All in all, not much importance is put on the outcome of the police investigation following the report made by Saiful.

    Anwar and PKR is busy throwing smokescreens. The US has made “veiled” threat and we can be certain that the British will follow suit. With all this unnecessary diversions how can the authorities discharge its duty. If the outcome of the police investigation find that there is a strong case against Anwar, then the whole conspiracy together with the foreign pressure will disrupt the case from the actual issue.

    At the end of the day, all of us are being made pawns to the unending thirst for Anwar to become the PM on Malaysia.

    I couldn’t have said it any better!

  14. BD,

    We can all give him the benefit of the doubt, but why can’t his supporters also give UMNO the benefit of the doubt? Because of our previous actions?

    Anwar supporters seems to have very selective memory.

    Tsk tsk.

    A Conversation About Liwat
    http://umnodu.blogspot.com

  15. Anwar camp claimed that the sodomy allegation is to divert public attention away from the mongolia murder case, and accused Najib and Rosmah were the mastermind.
    UMNO camp saw that the assasinaton plot, Turkish Embassy, and Anwar’s report against former IGP and AG is a diversion form the sodomy allegation.
    WAKE UP EVERYONE, Badawi is still sleepy and Khairy is still messing the country.

  16. Anwar has always been a pet of the US Govt. Anwar is commonly known to have 2 personalities. Hold on, the US (precisely the CIA) is convinced that Anwar has 5 personalities and they are very conversant as to his weaknesses etc.
    Why is Anwar this time around is so vociferous in preempting counter actions even before the authorities ever decided whether there was a case against him or not and why did he so loudly claim to the world here and beyond of his ALIBI?
    Is it not guilty conscience. May be the fear that the abrasion at Saiful’s bottom may contain some dirt that could be similar to those found around his little rascal skin. Who knows.

  17. Get ur facts right, Uncle Sam, Anwar’s case wasn’t “overturned” – knowing them, nothing is coincidental : why omit the part about Anwar winning the appeal on grounds of technicality? The judges were not subtle on the grounds upon which they ruled in favour of Anwar. They’re quick to throw their weight around, and it comes as no surprise that they forgot what the United Nations Charter say about sovereignty equality. And why are they always so responsive? because Anwar is their puppet and he has in his hands our country to trade with them.
