DIARRHEA and MIKE ARROYO
The incident about the Peru-bound flight of President GMA that took a detour to Osaka, Japan puportedly because Mike Arroyo was having a heart attack, later downgraded to diarrhea, is generating insidious whispers of a grand wrongdoing in the process of unraveling. Antonio Abaya writes about it, Diarrhea in midflight, and calls for a Senate investigation if only “to salvage what is left of our national self-respect.”
Is it really true that Mr. Arroyo was about to be arrested by the FBI in LAX for money laundering activities? We have a right to know.
Is it really true that President Arroyo has been black-listed by US authorities and may set foot on US soil only for UN-related meetings and conferences? We also have a right to know.
The key element to ascertain in such a Senate investigation would be the coordinates of the plane when the decision was made to make almost a 180-degree turn to Osaka. This can be extracted from the pilot, co-pilot and navigator under oath, with the understanding that perjury would cost them their licenses.
It can also be verified by the aircraft’s voice and cockpit recorders, as well as by the electronic records of the Los Angeles and Osaka control towers, all of which, presumably are beyond being corrupted by Filipino politicians and their lackeys.
If I remember right, Lito Banayo, from whose article this post have lifted much, dismissed it as a product of fertile imagination of a Mike basher.
Yet, people are wondering: do you remember the FG missing a Manny Pacquiao fight yet?
Diarrhea, diarrhea, … diarrhoyo, such a beautiful merging of words.
