Nothing best illustrates the desperation of the adversaries of President Noynoy Aquino (P-Noy) - those who have been trying very hard lately to destabilize him - than to claim that COPA (The Council on Philippine Affairs) is now disappointed with his administration.

Some of the soldiers wanted to relay their grievances to the President. One of COPA’s founding members, former Tarlac Rep. Jose "Peping" Cojuangco, tried to set up a meeting during the President’s consultation with civil society groups last Wednesday, COPA secretary general Pastor "Boy" Saycon said.

He added that the opposition will field a common candidate and that the list has been whittled down to three: Poe, San Miguel Corp. chairman Eduardo Cojuangco Jr. and Sen. Panfilo Lacson.

Enrile said they are considering one of the three as standard-bearer for the opposition, although he noted that only Lacson has so far "expressed his resolve in running for president."

And America is in the middle of it all, looming right in everybody’s midst as the dark, scowling, all-powerful avenging angel against international terrorism. Now we are being told by the US State Department that in our very own country, the US military can kill anybody it chooses to on suspicion of being a terrorist. In fact, this is exactly what it did recently in Yemen. Six suspected al-Qaeda operatives were exterminated by a Hellfire missile launched from remote-controlled CIA Predator 160 kilometers east of Sanaa, Yemen’s capital.

Malacañang yesterday laughed off claims by the Council of Philippine Affairs (COPA) that the so-called civil society group is under surveillance by some of President Arroyo’s officials.

Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye said the government is too deeply involved in its "total war" on crime and terrorism to use its intelligence-gathering resources on "rumor-mongers," including groups like COPA.
