Anwar Ibrahim and the Bush Neocons

The Asia Sentinel carries a 'valid and true' story about Anwar's controversial Foundation For the Future, with some awkward questions for him. Headlined Anwar Ibrahim and the Bush Neocons, it highlighted a 42-page report by a Washington-based whistle-blower organisation, which caused a major embarrassment for the Opposition leader.

It alleged that the Foundation, which Anwar headed for a time in the middle of the last decade, was actually established and funded by the US Department of State at the behest of Elizabeth Cheney, the daughter of then-Vice President Dick Cheney, and the Bush administration's neoconservatives.

So, Member of Parliament for Rembau, Khairy Jamaluddin must have done his research well enough before establishing the story at the Dewan Rakyat. However, his sources were not revealed.

The Government Accountability Project report, titled The Foundation for the Future: What FOIA Documents Reveal, and released July 8, is based on hundreds of documents delivered to the organization under the US Freedom of Information Act.

It says the Foundation for the Future was established and operated in a "highly irregular manner" by Bush administration officials and employees including Shaha Riza, the girlfriend of Paul Wolfowitz, who was forced to leave the World Bank after it became known that he had promoted Riza to triple the World Bank's salary guidelines. Read its full reports here.

The report characterizes the Foundation for the Future as part of a vast and tragic misconception among the Bush administration neoconservatives, particularly Wolfowitz, that a slight push – the elimination of Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein from power – would result in a dramatic change in the Middle East.

That of course has resulted in the deaths of more than 4,000 US soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians and a realignment in the Middle East that nobody in the west wanted – the growing power of Iran in the region and particularly in Iran's influence over the Iraqi government itself.

Yes, Anwar got to explain!

Jai,

Anwar Ibrahim was my idol when I studied in SMSJ, I joined Abim in 1977 solely because of Anwar's Charisma at that time.

When he was the DPM cum Finance minister, I was with Phileo Allied Bank, a bank that was personally connected to him through Tong Kooi Ong and Shamsidar Taharin.

I knew a lot about Anwar Ibrahim and if people told me that he is a USA stooge I will tell him, it is a known fact by anybody who is aligned to him, so my advised to the youngsters and supporters of Anwar and his Parti Keadilan, please repent and aligned yourself to other political parties.

Anwar's problem is survival because he wanted to be PRIME MINISTER, no matter what happen to the country. Personally he don't care for the country, he will sell his own mother to be the PRIME MINISTER.

hashim chonel,

he was not only your idol but a star to millions of people in malaysia and abroad.

i was in wellington when he was student leader in university malaya. his chants reached us the malay students in new zealand, australia and other countries. some supported him while some who didnt had the confident that this would one day lead malaysia as the no.1

after i was moved to the finance ministry in 1993 from bank negara, i knew some of his aides like ezam, adlin and azmin whom i regarded as the people anwar would groom and wanted to be with him all the way.

i also knew by then his close relationship with many western leaders, some of whom were 'kingpins' of various international monetary organisations and syndicates. only then that i and some friends realised how cunning this man was, trying to portray himself as malaysia's most important leader then.

yes, he was greedy and wanted so much to become a prime minister.

that's his main objective. and i personally think if he achieves his goals, malaysia would be sold to the west!

Subsidi konglomerat dan subsidi rakyat
Rakyat juga ingin tahu perbandingan subsidi terhadap rakyat dan subsidi terhadap kroni-kroni mereka. Contohnya "Negara memberikan subsidi sebanyak RM20 bilion setahun kepada IPP iaitu Genting Sanyen, Malakof dan YTL Power. Kenapa? Sedangkan sudah ada TNB milik rakyat. Kenapa bersekongkol duit rakyat demi kepentingan IPP. Subsidi 20 billion tetapi mencekik rakyat untuk 750juta. Tidak lain dan tidak bukan dibelakang syarikat tersebut adalah kroni-kroni mereka termasuk anak Dr Mahathir sendiri. Biar rakyat mampus asal kroni dan anak mereka billionair.

Syarikat-syarikat pengeluar tenaga independen (IPP) mendapat keuntungan berlipat kali ganda akibat sistem subsidi bahan api yang tidak masuk akal. Kementerian Tenaga, Air dan Komunikasi mengakui IPP mendapat bekalan gas dengan harga RM6.40 bagi setiap mmBtu (juta unit Termal British) sedangkan harga pasaran RM41 mmBtu. Menterinya Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor berkata, Petronas sendiri menjual gas kepada IPP di bawah harga kos pengeluarannya, sebanyak RM15 hingga RM16 mmBtu. Tambahnya, keadaan ini menyebabkan "IPP mampu mengaut keuntungan yang tinggi." "Penjualan gas kepada IPP
adalah tidak munasabah sedangkan kos pengeluaran gas ialah RM15 hingga RM16 mmBtu dan harga pasaran pula mencecah RM41 mmBtu.
Gas diberi subsidi tetapi rakyat dinaikkan harga gas. Sedangkan kita menggunakan gas yang disedut diperairan Terengganu, diproses dan dibotolkan di Paka-Kerteh dan dijual dengan harga yang dinaikkan kepada RM1.85 sekilo. Apa ke menatang subsidinya? Mereka dapat gas percuma kurnian Allah dan dicekik rakyat untuk kepentingan kroni mereka. Tahukan saudara YTL di Paka-Kerteh mengaut untung RM1.5 juta sehari, RM40 juta sebulan dan RM500 juta setahun. Apa kepakaran mereka? Hanya sekadar menculik kepakaran dan kemahiran pekerja TNB, jiran sebelah. Tetapi rakyat dicekik dan syarikat kroni yang untung beratus juta diberi subsidi? Apa rasionalnya memberi subsidi gas kepada IPP RM35.7 bilion, manakala sektor penjanaan tenaga pula mendapat manfaat daripada subsidi keseluruhan yang berjumlah RM62.6 bilion berbanding memberi subsidi kepada rakyat?

Itu baru syarikat tenaga. Macamana syarikat-syarikat lain? http://www.tranungkite.net/v10/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=6490

jai my bro, tak payahlah ucap terima kasih pada kj tuh. please...dia sendiri pun macam Mr Anwar Ibrahim gak. Pembelit, licik, oportunis...penipu..but in Anwar case kita bolehlah jugak check track records dia starting as a student leader in UM, then Abim, then Yayasan Anda in the 70-s....but in KJ's case budak ni tetiba macam payung terjun je. Tu pun nasib baik kawin dgn anak Pak Lah. For all we know, dia pun sama dua kali lima gak jagi alat Neocons...lebih teruk lagi kot. Not only Anwar Ibrahim kena explain...Khairy Jamaluddin pun u kena siasat apa latar belakang dia..

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see
if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be
a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
