MANILA, Philippines -- Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Pimentel Jr. and Senator Rodolfo Biazon on Thursday expressed concern over last month's visit of United States Ambassador Kristie Kenney to the main camp of the Moro International Liberation Front (MILF).

Pimentel said he has asked the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) if Kenney's visit had its approval, but has not gotten any response until now.

On February 19, Kenney, escorted by American security personnel and aid officials, visited the MILF’s Camp Darapanan and met with secessionist chairman Murad Ebrahim and members of the group’s central committee.

Pimentel said that, while Kenney’s visit did not violate any specific law, it is “diplomatic practice” to seek the permission of the host when foreign diplomats travel around a country.

It is part of [diplomatic] custom and tradition that has ripened into an enforceable practice...It is unusual for any ambassador of any accredited country to just go to any rebel camp to talk with a rebel leader,” he said.

Normally, Pimentel said, such visits are cleared with the DFA or the Office of the President.

What if the Chinese ambassador met with…Murad? The issue I'm trying to raise is, the US is our ally...why does it treat us as if we are still a colony?” the Senate minority leader asked.

Biazon had stronger words on Kenney's visit to the MILF camp, calling it possible “interference” in the country’s internal affairs.
Remember, even while we are already talking peace with MILF, they are still considered enemy of the state. There could possibly be the question of interference,” he said.

Biazon, who chairs the Senate committee on national defense and security, said at least two questions need to be answered about that visit: Whether US forces provided security for the ambassador, and whether there was coordination or authority from the Philippine government for Kenney's meeting with Murad.

Biazon said that from his own personal inquiries, Kenney coordinated with the Office of Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process.
But is that a sufficient level of authority for [such] a serious affair?” he asked.

Mas malala pa ito sa kaso ng panghihimasok sa SPRATLY......

Mas malala ang pakiki-alam at panghihimasok na ginagawa ng bansang Amerika sa katauhan ng US Ambasador Kenney sa pagbisita sa BASENG GERILLA ng MILF ( Shariff Kabunsuan Area) kamakailan lang. Parang sinaksak, trinaydor, niyurakang patalikod ang soberanya ng Pilipinas. Sapagkat, alam ng US na itinuturing “terorista't kaaway magpahanggang ngayon ng AFP at Malakanyang ang MILF at sa katunayan, isa ang MILF sa palagiang ginagamit na palusot-scapegoat ng PNP sa anumang pambobombang nagaganap sa Kamindanawan maging sa Kamaynilaan."

Sa mga larawan ipinalabas ng halos lahat ng malalaking pahayagan, kitang-kitang nakikipaglandian ang US Ambasador Kenney sa pamunuan ng Moro Islamic Liberation Front (Kumander Murad). Kung ang pagbisita ni Kenney ay nakapatungkol sa balangkas ng naudlut na Peace Talk (GRP / MILF), maaring tanggapin ng mga Pinoy, pero - subalit "kung ito'y sikretong pagbobroker para sa isang INDEPENDENT MORO REPUBLIC kapalit ang panggagahasa't pagnanakaw sa natural resources, pagtatayo ng US military Base at gawing Iraq ang Mindanao," mukhang hindi ito matatanggap ng mga Pilipino, lalo na ng mga kapatid nating Moro.

Kung nagawa ng US ito sa Kosovo ("independence"), walang dahilan upang i-kosovo, ipasubo rin nito ang Mindanao. Ang Kosovo na pinaninirahan ng Ethnic Albanian at Serbian minority ay matatagpuan na “parang isang islang (land lock) napaliligiran ng karagatang Christian Orthodox SERBIAN (dating Yugoslavia) sa Europa.

Ang nakaka-intriga, walang palag, kimi, tamimi, walang diplomatic protest man lang na ipina-abot ang Pilipinas sa bansang Amerika. Siguro, kung si Bin Laden ang dumalaw, kung TALIBAN, kung si Mahathir ang dumalaw, kung Ambasador ng China ang dumalaw, kung si Joma Sison ang dumalaw o kung si Cong Mujib Hataman ng Anak Mindanao ang dumalaw sa MILF areas, baka siguro isang makunat-kunat na banat-batikos, UMULAN NG PROTESTA mula sa Malakanyang ang nangyari. Kaso, US ambasador, tiklop ang buntut ni Ate Glo.
