Bugger off, US!...


"Stop meddling in our affairs," said Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim in response to Washington's protest over the ISA crackdown on Friday.

"The US likes to think of itself as the world's policeman and it has been doing this for the past decade, every time we want to enforce our public laws.

The US State Department summoned a top Malaysian envoy on Friday to complain after an ISA crackdown on Friday in which a blogger, reporter and opposition party leader were detained.

Rais said while the use of the ISA as a preventative detention law may appear to be questionable by some quarters, Malaysia's sovereignty must still be respected.
