President Benigno Aquino III plans to tell the truth about the corruption of the previous administration. He expects the electorate to be shocked. But I believe they won't be.
The truth shall set you free, the Gospels tell us. This is true but the truth isn't enough. The success and failure of the Noynoy presidency lies on one thing.
And this is sending Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her cabal behind bars. The people will not like a pardon, so he better forget entertaining that possibility.
Mr Aquino can use the vast powers and persuasive or otherwise of his office to see justice is done.
And perhaps this is the last chance for the Rule of Law to eliminate corruption. The other options have been tried and initially found successful until a new crop of corrupt politicians take over.
History calls this the executioner's block.
But that never does any good!
