PCIJ: Conservative U.S. think-tank hits Gloria
BARELY two weeks since a scathing New York Times editorial that accused President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo of undermining the Philippines’ “hard-won democracy,” a senior policy analyst at the conservative Heritage Foundation hit the President for resorting to “the methods many dictators use to silence criticism.”
In a commentary published in the Fox News website, Dana Robert Dillon, the Heritage Foundation’s senior policy analyst who writes regularly on the Philippines and Southeast Asia, criticized the Arroyo government’s moves to curtail free speech and assembly and suggested that the US Congress and President George W. Bush review American security assistance to ensure that “accountability procedures are followed” and U.S.-supplied military equipment is properly used.
The commentary is one more indication that that the Arroyo government is losing support in Washington, despite its expensive efforts to shore up its standing in the United States by hiring American lobby groups.
Last September, the PCIJ reported that the Arroyo government had signed a $75,000 monthly contract with the Venable LLP law firm to lobby for grants and congressional earmarks for the Philippine military and also for charter change.

"I was also happy to read in yesterday’s papers the position of Senator Richard Gordon on charter change; the former Miracle Worker of Subic is advocating Cha-Cha after the 2007 elections and urging that the first thing we ought to do is clean up the Comelec and restore its credibility in the eyes of the public.
I agree with this position 1000 percent."
Well, that's better than what is being done now, but as long as Arroyo is in power, I'm still very uneasy about this CHA CHA thing.
