President Noynoy has passed on the blame to the commander of the PNP Special Action Force (SAF) for the “lack of coordination” that had led to the death trap and massacre of 44 of his men.
But Noynoy, who is the Commander-in-Chief of this republic, did not even coordinate with his Interior Secretary Mar Roxas and PNP acting chief Deputy Director General Leonardo Espina in handling the matter after the incident.
Now, who did Noynoy coordinate with, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF)?
Did he expect the Muslim rebels to yield the international terrorists they were harboring by virtue of the Bangsamoro peace deal? Yesterday morning, the Commander-in-Chief was not even present at the arrival of the remains of the fallen heroes at the Villamor Air Base.
Noynoy reportedly chose to grace the inauguration of a Mitsubishi car manufacturing plant in Laguna, instead of personally showing his sympathies and extending his condolences to the aggrieved families of the slain SAF troopers.
All the more that Congress must investigate Noynoy’s orders which had led to this horrific tragedy.
The truth must be brought to fore, particularly the involvement of suspended PNP Director General Alan Purisima in launching this Oplan Palpak and in keeping Roxas, Espina and the military in the dark.
I don’t think Noynoy even coordinated or consulted with the so-called National Security Council.
Now, almost five years into Noynoy’s Administration, many of us are just finding out what a lame commander-in-chief we have in our midst.
With over a year left in his term, he would have gotten away with the usual lip service and double-talk.
On Wednesday night, not a few people may have thrown up in disgust upon hearing Noynoy’s first public statement on the massacre.
Noynoy may have gotten away with lies, as we heard from his much-awaited pronouncement, with his empty rhetoric devoid of empathy, conviction and passion expected of a leader.
Four days since the bloodbath, he merely treated us, again, with his all familiar lip service and double-talk.
Unfortunately for Noynoy, he could not get away this time with such senseless speech on the matter of the deaths of 44 of the best men in uniformed service.
This time, presidential rhetoric would not assuage the outrage of a grieving nation demanding justice.
As if trivializing the tragedy, Noynoy, instead, took the opportunity to warn those who might exploit the situation, apparently referring to his political rivals.
This bakla commander-in-chief must truthfully explain the involvement of suspended Director General Purisima in this most disgraceful incident.
Noynoy’s cowardice defies empty words, as heartless as the trigger-happy murderers of the PNP Special Action Force (SAF) troops.
This bakla would not even take responsibility for having waylaid his men into a death trap. (With bakla, of course, we only mean coward, a chicken)
Come to think of it, he blames the SAF commander for not properly “coordinating” with whom Noynoy did not clarify.
Again, did Noynoy mean coordinate with the MILF?
Congress must find out if that’s exactly what Noynoy did—coordinate with the MILF.
Doesn’t Noynoy trust Roxas, his presumptive heir to the post of commander-in-chief?
If I were Mar, I would have resigned right after my boss’s meaningless lip service.
Noynoy even lauded the MILF for creating an “investigative body” to shed light onto the five-hour “mis-encounter.”
The PNP men and women, including their brothers-in-arms at the AFP, now await the next move of their Commander-in-Chief. Will he stand on their side or still break bread with the enemies?
Sino ba talaga ang boss mo, boss?
