Garci and the Thieves of the Decade

i would not be quick to judge garci for his consistent lying.  sinful and totally kapal he is, i have to commend the guy for not ratting out on his allies and cohorts. because despite being state-sanctioned thieves, there exists a form of 'honor' among thieves nonetheless. to preserve the duty of omerta (silence) and guard the volatility by which the deck of crime would be exposed by the fall of just one card. for the conspiracy in thievery that the arroyo administration has enmeshed itself rests on the strength in which the silence on sin and discretionary power could be maintained, and for any intrusion (questioning, probing, whistleblowing) diverted away from it.  i do not salute garci or the arroyos and their minions. nor am i condoning what they did (forgiveness is indeed of the divine!). instead, i am presenting part of the dynamics of crime, where 'gentleman' rules prevail and where positive concepts of 'honor', 'trust' and 'integrity' take new form depending on the perspective.  think about it.  garci is the perfect ally in the distorted world of the arroyos.
