The saga took a lightning unfolding with Saiful Bahari alleging Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of sodomising him and Anwar seeking sanctuary in Turkish Embassy.
To put it simply, this is a wrestling of arms involving high political tactics. Datuk Seri Anwar is now in the nation's political focal point, wrestling with BN over the ruling of the nation. As such, he is naturally exposed to greater political risks.
Right from the start, Anwar took the whole saga to its maximum publicity by seeking sanctuary in Turkish Embassy. By going into hiding in an embassy, Datuk Seri smartly put Malaysia in the global limelight and subjected the government of Pak Lah to greater pressure.
This game of wits has just started. Whatever may be the outcome, the nation's focal point has been shifted away from some other contemporary hot issues. That may be part of the veiled motive of the saga.
Let's stay tuned in to the developments!
