It is About Sharing

Knowledge is for sharing. Do not keep your knowledge to yourself alone. Let it grows. The more you share, the more you learn and in the end you become a better person.

The Bluffer is Bluffing and Flip-Flopper is Flip-Flopping

What about this???
.
As reported in The Star online...
.
Sin Chew Daily reporter Tan Hoon Cheng was detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) because police received information that her life had been threatened, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar...“Police wanted to get to the bottom of it,” he said...However, the minister vehemently denied that he had anything to do with the arrests and detention of Tan and two others — Malaysia Today news portal editor Raja Petra Kamaruddin and Selangor senior executive councillor Teresa Kok — under the ISA on Friday...Asked if he thought the police action was justified, Syed Hamid said: “If I start to interfere with the administration of enforcement then it’s difficult.”...“I am a minister. I am a politician. If I start to interfere, then people will say I have a political motive. It will send the wrong signals. I cannot interfere,” he said...“The police need not refer to me. It’s their discretion and their assessment of what happened. There has been no malice on their part,” he told a press conference at Bukit Aman.

As reported by Utusan Online (you know right? Utusan can't be wrong in reporting news especially involving government)
.
Penahanan tiga orang di bawah Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA) kelmarin adalah keputusan kerajaan dan ia tidak sepatutnya dipersoalkan oleh mana-mana menteri termasuk Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim...Menteri Dalam Negeri, Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar memberi peringatan itu sebagai reaksinya kepada kenyataan Zaid di Kota Bharu hari ini bahawa kerajaan tidak sewajarnya menggunakan ISA untuk menahan mereka sebaliknya perlu diadili mengikut sistem perundangan negara...menurut beliau, tindakannya meluluskan penahanan di bawah ISA itu adalah bagi pihak kerajaan yang memerintah, selaras dengan kedudukannya sebagai menteri Kabinet, bukannya ‘orang di luar kerajaan’. (Translation: The detention of the three people under the ISA was a government's decision and it should not be questioned by any Minister including the Minister in the Prime Minister Department, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim...The Home Minister, Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar sent the reminder as a reaction to the statement made by Zaid at Kota Bharu today that the government was not supposed to use ISA to detain them but instead they have to be dealt with in accordance with the country's legal system...according to him, his action in approving the arrest under the ISA is on behalf of the ruling government, in line with his position as a Minister, and not as someone who is outside the government.
.

The discrepancies: -
.
(a) He said it was the police's decision on the ISA arrest but later said that it was the government'd decision
.
(b) He said that he had nothing to do with the arrest but later admitted that he approved the arrest.
.
But for once, Albar was right when he said that “If I start to interfere with the administration of enforcement then it’s difficult.” Yes, it is now difficult for Albar to justify.
