During a question-and-answer session at the Asia Media Summit 2008 in Kuala Lumpur recently, an American participant remarked on freedom of speech and human rights in Malaysia, Najib said the United States should look at itself first before criticising others.

He said the US, which has been projecting an image of a democratic country, was guilty of abuses especially in Guantanamo Bay, a US detention centre in Cuba.

"In the name of national security, there have been violations of human rights and even abuse. So please, critisise the US government and ask them to close Guantanamo Bay," he said.

Well done Dato Seri.. my hats off for you this time which i couldnt deny. But doesn't that sound similar? As far as I can remember only Dr M would abrubtly put his statement as such. Is Najib getting somewhere since all along he has been playing safe and a 'YES' man to his boss? I wonder...
