Series of cables confirm Malaysia’s meddling in the 1970s Mindanao wars
By Raïssa Robles
These are over two million diplomatic cables and “Kissinger cables” going all the way back to 1966 and to the present.
Just click on this link and you can start looking for what you want.
For starters, type ‘MARCOS”. You can also type “AQUINO.”
Ordinarily, it takes the United States around 50 years to declassify such materials or to bury those marked “SECRET”, maybe forever.
The cables will confirm to you what the Marcoses claimed were just hearsay about them.
The cables will help the Filipino people and the nation fill the gaps in our collective historical memory.
A series of cables in 1973 are especially revealing. They talk of how the United States tried to get the dictator Ferdinand Marcos and Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak to resolve the Sabah issue.
Here’s the link to the cables.
Just type “Marcos” and click on all the cables that have to do with the Muslim conflict, even if the cables originate from Indonesia.
Before I close, I would like to ask fellow Filipinos the world over to please contribute to Wikileaks so that it can maintain the site.
