From the Manila Times:
Cory: Arroyo deserves benefit of the doubt
By MA. THERESA TORRES, The Manila Times Reporter
Former President Corazon Aquino on Friday urged the people to give President Arroyo the "maximum benefit of the doubt" in the face of the political turmoil besieging her administration.
"I have carefully weighed the virtues and faults of the Filipino. And I have come to the conclusion that he is worth dying for because he is the nation’s greatest untapped resource. He is not a coward. He values life and he tends to give his leader the maximum benefit of the doubt," Mrs. Aquino said in a speech during the Benigno Aquino Awards for Nationalism at the Rizal Hall of Malacañan.
Aquino, who still wields moral influence as the leader who faced up to the dictator Ferdinand Marcos, also urged the people to pray.
