Saakashvili would not admit his madness2010-04-16 03:45
In his interview to an American radio station the president of Georgia had to prove that he was not that mad as to give his consent to the demonstration of his own death in a chronicle broadcasted by the Imedi TV channel. A month ago, the TV company aired Russia's simulated intrusion without accompanying the imitation with any titles. Broadcasting a program like that on a pro-governmental channel is impossible without the higher officials' permission, so the opposition has finally diagnosed the president's case: "schizophrenia".
The world has scarcely forgotten the chewing of the tie and running from an imaginary helicopter when Mikhail Saakashvili has again got to prove his sanity. During his visit to the nuclear safety summit held in the USA, where he made a lot of efforts fishing out the master of the White House Barack Obama, the president of Georgia gave an interview to the American media.
NPR public radio tried to find out whether it is true that he had known about the Imedi broadcast beforehand. Yes, Saakashvili said, everyone knew about the sensation which had been advertised for a whole week on TV.
At the same time, Saakashvili gave the following answer when asked whether he had given his consent in any form to broadcasting the program: "I had to be mad to do a thing like that, so long as the main point of the report was the Georgian army committing a treachery, and me killed. Any government must be mad to rejoice such circumstances".
It should be noted that the radical opposition's doubts as to the president's inadequacy have long been dispelled. The former candidate for the Georgian presidency named by the opposition, leader of the Defend Georgia movement Levan Gachechiladze has stated after the chronicle was broadcasted that "Saakashvili is hysterically afraid of losing his power, knowing that after that he will get either to prison, or to an asylum".
Anthropologist Zaza Shatirishvili in his interview to InterpressNews diagnosed the case of the authors of the TV piece in the following way: "This is a product of deep schizophrenia".
Saakashvili has practically confirmed that if he were a contractor or a co-author of a film like that he should be treated as a mad person. That is why he tried to distance himself from the authors of the documentary film. However, this was done too late and looked unconvincing.
