Arroyo orders cover-up of appeasement-policy failure

President Arroyo of the Philippines said today that it's best not to talk about or write about the the kidnapping of Robert Tarongoy by terrorists in Iraq. She claims it's better for him that way, but it seems to me it's better for her. The incident does seem to point out the flaw in her decision to cave in back in mid-2004, when she said that complying with terrorists' demands to withdraw her nation's troops from Iraq would actually help keep Filipinos safe (source: CNN, July 26, 2004). Tell that to Tarongoy.
