The Test of Intelligence Information

It is a test all right, not of the intelligence of the Filipino people but a test and a challenge as well to our intelligence community to verify what I said, a yet-to-be validated information provided by a reliable source who had given me some accurate intelligence reports in the past.

In intelligence parlance, this information may be classified β€˜A6’. Considering the implications, it is one piece of information still worth looking into.

When an issue that has serious implications – such as the reported presence of Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) members in the Philippines – is raised, credible information is the best way to resolve it. This is without prejudice to Philippine authorities’ ongoing efforts to verify such information.

From Chinese Embassy Defense Counsel to Spokesman?

Sec. Panelo: “Ambassador Zhao sent me a text. He said, ‘What if we also think that your overseas workers are also spying on us. What can you say about that?'” … PRESIDENTIAL SPOKESPERSON OR CHINESE EMBASSY SPOKESMAN?

Has the presidential spokesman switched from Chinese embassy defense counsel to spokesman?

What I was pointing out in my tweet is not on the issue of whether or not there is logic in the Chinese ambassador’s statement.

The thing is, the Chinese embassy has its own spokesman who should speak on their behalf because that’s his job. Why would the country’s presidential spokesperson whose salary and other miscellaneous expenses are being paid out of our taxes take on the embassy spokesman’s job?
