Congressmen Pedro Romualdo and Antonio Cuenco are pushing the envelope in the eye-opening US State Department Country Report on Human Rights in the Philippines.

The Report scores corruption not only in the Arroyo government but also in the Judiciary, the mass media, and in the uniformed services.

So it must be asked: Is the Romualdo-Cuenco tandem’s conjecture that the Report’s release is linked to the case of Lance Corporal Daniel Smith reflecti the official thinking of Malacanang?

Romualdo’s call for the Philippines to lodge a diplomatic protest is a serious step and merits serious discussion given its implications.
