    Simeon del Rosario wrote a series of articles defending Martial Law against the foreign media, but his articles seem overly apologetic to Marcos. Marcos had always wished to present Martial Law through a package palatable to the United States, so he sought to become a dictator under a veneer of legitimacy.
