Khairy : It's all because of Ibrahim Ali and Dollah Kok Lanas

Now, the famous son-in-law has his own theory. :-)

Excerpt from Malaysiakini
Umno Youth deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin today pointed the finger at former Umno heavyweights Abdullah Ahmad and Ibrahim Ali as the cause behind the rift between former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his handpicked successor, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

According to a Bernama report, Khairy said he believes that Mahathir was sincere in raising certain questions concerning the government but certain quarters had taken advantage of this.

Without naming them, he said they were the same people mentioned by Pahang Menteri Besar Adnan Yaakob.

At a function last night, Adnan described Abdullah, who is also known as Dollah Kok Lanas, and Ibrahim as “disappointed people” who influenced and instigated Mahathir.

Dollah Kok Lanas, who was member of parliament for the Kelantan seat of Kok Lanas, is former New Straits Times editor-in-chief, while maverick politician Ibrahim was recently kicked out from Umno.

Excerpt from NST
KUANTAN: After weeks of restrained comments, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob finally launched a blistering verbal attack on Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday.

Adnan said such an outrageous statement could only mean that Dr Mahathir had lost his ability to differentiate between facts and malicious slander.

"Tun Dr Mahathir has destroyed himself by believing in people like (Datuk) Ibrahim Ali and Dollah Kok Lanas (former New Straits Times Press group editor-in-chief Tan Sri Abdullah Ahmad). He should not have let himself be influenced by these frustrated people."

Adnan said despite his stature as a statesman, Dr Mahathir had lost his bearing when he launched a personal attack against Abdullah.

"It makes me sad to see him letting those kutu-kutu (bad hats) instigate him to say all those things about Pak Lah."
