Palace: DFA says don’t talk about final draft to media

Seguis downplays MILF peace accord

Fearing a collapse of the peace talks with the Muslim secessionists with Malacañang’s admission of a final draft agreement spelling out “executive doables,” in the final draft agreement, chief government negotiator Rafael Seguis yesterday belied reports that there is already a final agreement, similar to the scrapped expanded Muslim homeland accord declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court (SC), that will give the separatist Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) a Bangsa Moro sub-state.

ANALYSIS

01/29/2010

WASHINGTON — Barack Obama Wednesday came across as a defiant and slightly caustic warrior for change, but it was unclear whether his debut State of the Union address had righted his listing presidency.

Bloodied by a brutal political year, Obama set out to show that his sweeping agenda was not derailed by diminished approval ratings or fierce Republican attempts to defeat his presidency.

“We do not give up. We do not quit. We do not allow fear or division to break our spirit,” Obama said, then went on to try to conjure up the spirit of reform that electrified American politics during his election campaign.... MORE
