Big business hits Philippine SC ruling (tags)

The influential Makati Business Club (MBC) on Thursday said the Supreme Court decision on executive privilege did not conform to the “progressive standards of transparency” and restricted the ability of the legislature to check presidential abuse. In a statement, the MBC said it was “very concerned” about the tribunal’s ruling on the petition of then Director General Romulo Neri of the National Economic and Development Authority to stop the Senate from questioning him further on the $329-million National Broadband Network (NBN) deal with China’s ZTE Corp. “Their decision gives greater value to executive privilege than to the public’s right to know, which is not in keeping with progressive standards of transparency. It also has the effect of restricting the ability of the legislature to act as a countervailing force against executive abuse,” the MBC said.

KPFA: Ralph Schoenman's analysis on 9-11 hearings and BIG PICTURE (tags)

Ralph Schoenman provides a sharp summary of state-sponsored terrorism, 9-11 and this week's Congressional hearings in context; 30 minute informal talk with Bonnie Faulkner, KPFA producer of "Guns & Butter," broadcast today on KPFA/KFCF (mp3 format). You may not agree with all of his views or analysis, but as a practice the methodology of review of "threads" reported in mainstream media and assembled into a picture--even if others squawk conspiracy theory--provides insight into the ruling elite dynamics, even if you don't subscribe to the full breadth of any given "conspiracy theory." It's important to question and dig - to keep an open mind - this information is presented in that spirit as you'll never find these views in the mainstream.
