Occam's Razor

Just tonight, I caught Karmina Constantino on ANC interviewing Cong. Nograles regarding the yet to be officially released congressional report on Garci. He mentioned that the administration has no knowledge of Garci's disappearance and is just as eager to locate him.

That may be a bit of a stretch!

The genesis of Garci’s disappearance began when the cell phone tapped conversations between Garci and the president were released to the public. It is beyond a cavil of doubt, absence of provenance notwithstanding, that the president was heard inquiring additional votes along with the famously redundant “yung dagdag, yung dagdag” line.

Soon thereafter, Garci made his great escape. Since then, he has not been heard from but like the great Elvis, has been known to surface here and there.

The government claimed that it has no knowledge of the whereabouts of the infamous Garci. But the Wycoco NBI never even lifted its thumb to triangulate his position.

Who hid Garci?

Elementary! The person and the cabal who stand to lose all if he surfaces. Who else but the one whose voice was caught on tape!

Does one have basis to say that? Yes. Occam’s Razor. The simplest explanation is usually the best.

OCCAMS RAZOR: "One should not increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything" (from Principia Cybernetica).

OH you're so right here Edwin. Everything that has happened since the original suspicion that GMA rigged the elections has been an INCREASE, in the number of "explanations" for the Garci tapes themselves and what they beg as an obvious explanation, for where he is, and for why we are in the mess we are in. They've blamed everything on everything else but the simplest explanation. alacanang knows it cannot just ignore the question everybody hears in the deafening silence: WHERE IS GARCI? So I predict there will soon be a "moro-moro" ... Nice touch here ... and is that passion I detect?

When Garci was missing, anti-GMA people are asking GMA to find him. Now that Garci's back, they're accusing her of hiding the person. ???

What do they really want or should I say whats the real motive behind all these pointing of fingers. If they're only after finding the TRUTH, they'd all go down to business right away. No more senseless talks.

The good news on Garci's return is that we can finally learn about the whole story/the whole truth. Enough with the one-sided stories! Enough with the hearsays! And for once let the "mother of all tapes" surface ASAP. Let the public hear the unedited tape. This is the only way we may understand what had really transpired last year. The opposition shouldn't be covering up their co-member. Let the whole truth be known.
