A book on military corruption & civilian neglect

By NEWSBREAK

MANILA, Philippines—Can the military truly rid itself of corruption? What can civilian institutions do to help make this possible?

The Enemy Within: An Inside Story on Military Corruption attempts to understand the various factors that bring about corruption in the military—the culture that pervades among men in uniform, the military’s abuse of heavily-funded projects, weak civilian control and oversight, and the government’s antiquated disbursement and auditing rules.

How the Big Fish Got Away looks into how retired military comptroller Carlos Garcia struck—and won—a plea bargain agreement with the Ombudsman and the Sandiganbayan. And the final chapter, Making Money, Making Peace, details how the military turned the UN reimbursement fund into its own slush fund and entered into lopsided contracts with favored suppliers.

“Given the intractable problems facing the armed forces, we know we’ve covered only a portion,” Gloria said in the book’s foreword. “But by telling it like it is, we hope to help an institution confront the enemy within and– with the help of a mature civilian leadership — defeat
