He is probably the Minister who makes the most blunders.

He put Tan Hoon Cheng into ISA to protect her.

because police received information that her life had been threatened, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar.


He took more than one week to come up with a less feeble excuse about the closure of the police beat base.

Conceding he made a mistake, Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar today rightfully pointed out that if fear was the reason behind the closure then ‘we would all be in trouble’.


He put RPK into ISA illegally.

The Shah Alam High Court this morning ruled that the detention of well-known blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin under the ISA was illegal and ordered his immediate release.

Judge Syed Ahmad Helmy Syed Ahmad said that Raja Petra’s detention was unconstitutional.

He said the Home Minister had not followed proper procedure under Section 8 of the ISA to issue the detention order against Raja Petra


And then, there is the Teresa Kok fiasco. That case had so much twisted facts, from eggs to dog foods to molotov cocktail to cerpen to azan and etc until I lost the plot. But we know at the core of it, it is Syed Hamid. Syed Hamid, the puteri lilin who often make blunders and melts when heat is applied.

And there is also the Suaram’s voluntary worker from Johor who was detained temporary and we mistook it for another ISA detention because they took several hours to clarify matters.

I am not very old and I don’t have very good memory. However, I do know that I have not seen a Minister who made so much blunders as Syed Hamid did. How in the world did we get someone like him to run the country, in charge of security? I am not being disrespectful. I am merely a very curious rakyat who just cannot fathom why our wonderful and great nation deserves someone like that? Does it occur to you that most of the unhappiness, injustice, si-peh tulan feelings we have stemmed from him?
