Inside todayís edition, we have a call from UDM party for U.S. Ambassador Mike Owen to either apologise for his assertion that a run-off was likely next month or immediately leave this country.
We can understand outrage of UDM but in all honesty, we do not think the American diplomat alone is to blame. We have partisan citizens working at these foreign embassies or aligned with them. They are giving bogus Ďintelligenceí information to these diplomats.
If Owen can utter such ill-thought statements similar to those found on Wikileaks, it is because of advise he received. Thus, we should look at the persons advising him from within our very citizenry.
Even if Michael Owen leaves, this problem will remain. Those with unpatriotic agenda lie right within our ranks. We are our problem.
