Imperialist Consul Oscar F. Williams
1898 - During the Philippine Revolution against Spain, American Consul Oscar F. Williams sends a dispatch to Secretary Wm. R. Day reporting that the Filipino revolutionaries have defeated the colonial forces at practically all encounters and have taken control of the northern provinces and the entire bay coast, save for the city of Manila;   the success of the Filipinos in breaking the yoke of Spanish colonization, however, will later be stolen by the Americans who will stage the Mock Battle of Manila to make it appear that it is they who defeated the Spaniards after duping Pres. Emilio F. Aguinaldo into freely allowing the entry of  the forces of the emerging imperialist United States into the Philippine archipelago supposedly as friendly troops; the second phase of the Himagsikan led by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo y Famy (who deposed and ordered the  assassination-cum-execution of revolutionary President/Supremo Andres Bonifacio y de Castro) intersected with the Spanish-American War, with Admiral George Dewey and other Dewey and other Bald Eagle military and diplomatic officials conning Aguinaldo into stupidly agreeing to an "alliance" to fight Spain, making verbal assurances that the U.S. was supposedly an 'ally' that would honor Philippine Independence, a promise that would be savagely broken  by the first Bald Eagle's war of imperialism, the bloody and protracted Filipino-American War (1899-1914).
