Obsession to the point of being delusional
Salleh Said Keruak
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and those opposed to Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak are saying that US President Obama was referring to Najib in his speech in Lima. That is bordering on wishful thinking and being delusional.
What makes them think that with so many issues to worry about the whole world is focused on just one issue: 1MDB? They are suggesting that with the world facing conflicts and chaos at every corner of the planet the US President has time for nothing else but for only one issue.
First they say Najib is scared of leaving Malaysia for fear that the US will arrest him. Now they say the US President attacked Najib in his speech. President Obama actually made a general reference to US policy and was not, as Mahathir says, a direct reference to Najib.
In fact, what Obama said was that the US cannot interfere in the internal matters of another country. So maybe Obama was referring to Mahathir and not Najib. And this contradicts what Mahathir and his people earlier said: which is the US is going to take action against Najib in a US court.
