Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has become a big liar

The "responsible" blogs have reported this much earlier, but the mainstream media did not. Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's racist Islam Hadhari administration is indeed going to get a RM200 million corporate executive jet.

The Q319 CJ (Corporate Executive Jet) is estimated to costs about US$50 million

When the whole matter blew up, the
liar Malaysian Prime Minister said that "the jet is for use of the government, not the prime minister (only)". Elaborating, Abdullah said, "The aircraft belongs to Penerbangan Malaysia Berhad (PMB), it was (bought with) their money. We just leased it."

What's the difference between buying the jet directly and leasing it from a government-owned company? Who pays the bills for MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operation) ultimately?

Maybe someone should remind the
sleepy premier that Khazanah Nasional owns Penerbangan Malaysia Berhad (PMB), and Khazanah Nasional is the investment arm of the Malaysian Government, and Abdullah Ahmad Badawi as the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance is also the chairman of Khazanah Nasional.

The executive jet was bought with "their" money? It is the taxpayers' money, and the
mentally-challenged Prime Minister has become a big liar. Is he still a responsible man?
