Palace victim of Lacson sting operation—Enrile
By Christine F. Herrera
SENATOR Juan Ponce Enrile yesterday accused Senator Panfilo Lacson and whistleblower Rodolfo Lozada of engineering the ongoing exposé of high-level corruption in the national broadband network deal as a way of undermining the government.
“I believe this whole thing is a ‘planned affair,’ contrived by Senator Lacson and Lozada to make it appear that it was government that made Lozada leave for Hong Kong to elude the Senate hearing, but it was in fact Senator Lacson and Lozada who planned it,” Enrile told Standard Today.
“I would say the planned affair was very clever, very tricky and very mean,” he said.http://www.manilastandardtoday.com/?page=news1_feb29_2008
As the invisible brains behind the declaration of Martial Law in 1972, Mr. Enrile is well-versed in the manipulation of events to bring about cataclysms in the country.
