Gov’t peace adviser says SAF men stormed rebel territory
PRESIDENTIAL Peace Adviser Teresita Quintos-Deles tried, but failed, to convince Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos that the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) should not be faulted for the deaths of 44 Special Action Force (SAF) members in Mamasapano town in Maguindanao province on January 25.

Deles told Marcos that the police commandos walked into their own doom when they entered the rebels’ turf without notice.

In her conversation with Sen. Marcos on January 26, a day after the incident, Deles “passionately” defended the MILF in an apparent bid to save the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) which is pending in the Senate Committee on Local Government chaired by Marcos. The lawmaker suspended all BBL hearings pending the outcome of an investigation of the Mamasapano carnage.

“They were killed by the group that was sitting across the table from you,” Marcos told Deles. “My friend from Davao even said that the reinforcements were killed that’s why the [casualties]increased from 30 to 60,” stressed the lawmaker.


Initial reports mistakenly placed the SAF body count at more than 60.

But Deles retorted that the incident could have been prevented had the SAF coordinated their movements with the ceasefire committee.

“Imagine the situation of the MILF (when) you have 50 to 80 armed people (entering their turf). If we don’t have the peace process, it could have escalated. They (MILF) did come assisting in treating (the wounded SAF) and bringing the bodies out,” she told Marcos.

But Marcos was adamant, stressing that the MILF can never justify its action, especially since those killed were government troopers who were on a legitimate mission to capture terrorists.

“Either way, 60 people died. And they’re not attacking the MILF. They were there to pick up the guy (Zulkifli bin Hir alias Marwan). Even if their motivation is money, the truth of the matter is they’re not attacking the MILF,” the senator pointed out.

The two officials’ conversation was recorded by a staff who covered the meeting. There were claims that the conversation was taped surreptitiously and therefore, leaking it to the media may be deemed illegal.

But The Manila Times, which got hold of a digital copy of the purported conversation, got information that the meeting was not secret. In fact, in the recording, clicks of camera shutters can be heard, indicating that a number of photographers were also in the room.

“We cannot confirm the existence of the tape but what we can confirm is that Secretary Deles actually went to the office of Sen. Marcos on January 26, after the hearing on the constitutionality of the BBL by Sen. (Miriam Defensor) Santiago. Deles talked to Senator Marcos to clarify the suspension of the hearings on the BBL. The meeting was not clandestine or anything like that,” Marcos’ media officer, Reynato Custodio, said.

Custodio said there were photographers from both sides during the meeting.

“I can even provide you a copy once our photographer can send us one,” he told The Times.

In a statement released through the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP), Deles admitted that she met not only with Marcos but with Senate President Franklin Drilon on January 26.

A copy of the recorded conversation reached social networking site Facebook after it was posted by journalist Carmen Pedrosa who claimed that the copy was sent by a certain “Ricky” who wrote about the audio recording of the meeting between Deles and Marcos.

The correspondence supposedly included an audio file as an attachment with file name “Bbm And Deles.m4a.” The “Bbm” may be referring to the initials of Senator Bongbong Marcos. The Times received the same file with the same name.

Deles noted that if the audio recording does exist, it should be a cause for alarm as it is a conversation with the senator held in his office and would thus be a violation of Republic Act 4200 or the Anti-Wire Tapping Law.

Deles was alleged to have suggested a “whitewash” by making the incident “disappear,” which she readily belied and dismissed as “misinformation.”

She said her office alerted Marcos about the malicious misinformation being spread to mislead the public.

“That is a falsehood,” Deles said, referring to the Facebook post. “We certainly want accountability and will pursue truth and justice for those who have fallen in Mamasapano,” she added.

“I did have two meetings with two senators the day after the Mamasapano incident. One was with Sen. [Ferdinand] “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. and the other with Senate President Franklin Drilon,” Deles recalled. “But I never adverted to anything about a plan to ‘make the incident disappear’ or for a ‘whitewash.’”

On January 26, OPAPP said Deles was in the Senate to attend a hearing on the BBL organized by the Committee on Constitutional Amendments presided by Santiago. Marcos was in attendance.

Marcos’s committee deliberates on the Bangsamoro bill jointly with the Senate Committee on Peace, Unification and Reconciliation chaired by Sen. Teofisto “TG” Guingona 3rd.

“After the hearing, I met with Senator Marcos in his office to discuss the Mamasapano incident over which the Senator expressed concerns while we were still in the meeting room,” Deles said.

“There was nothing in our conversation that suggested any intent to whitewash the tragic incident. Certainly, we share the utmost efforts and hope of gaining clarity and accountability on what happened,” she emphasized.

According to OPAPP records, Deles’ meeting with Marcos last 15 minutes.

“We actually concluded our meeting by agreeing to wait for more information to come in on what really transpired, and share what we can with each other,” Deles said.

In their conversation, Marcos doubted the ability of the MILF to control its forces which, he said, puts the entire peace process at a disadvantage.

“We are counting on the MILF leadership to control their fighters. They cannot disarm their people if they cannot control them. They were operating against our troops,” the senator said.

“They [MILF] were not [operating on our troops],” responded Deles. “They were in their places. But ‘di mo lang alam kung MILF lang yan. Nandiyan din any BIFF [Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters] at lahat ng [armed groups).”

"They did not bring down the [information]na may papasok divan na gobyerno. How can they know na may papasok na 80 armed (policemen)?” she asked.

Deles argued that the MILF would not have fired shots unless they were attacked.

“Pinasok nila (SAF) ang (MILF) area,” she argued.

But Marcos, who did not budget on his decision to suspend the BBL hearings throughout the conversation, argued that had the MILF lost 60 men or more, they would have launched an all-out offensive against the government.

“Hindi sila inatake eh. Peace process any pinag-uuspan at 60 tao natin any pinatay. How can that have a place in the peace process? Akala ko ba mutual agreement?” he told Deles.

“What will the MILF do, say, if we killed 60 of their people? They will go to war. They will attack in number . . . While we are talking to them they’re shooting at us . . . Inambush nila any reinforcements. They were mowed down. Stripped the troops of their equipment and firearms. Inubos talaga. Hindi ito defense. They were shot one by one in the head!” Marcos emphasized.

Deles assured that accountability would be sought from both sides, stressing that even the MILF has expressed “good faith.”

They also agreed that a meeting between the senator and MILF peace panel chair Mohagher Iqbal may be arranged to discuss the Senator’s concerns with regard to the Mamasapano incident. Said meeting happened a week after, on February 2.

“We have already conveyed my apologies to Sen. Marcos for the possibility of him being affected by all these misinformation being spread against me,” Deles said.

  1. kailangan lang siguro maunawaan ng lahat na ang Mamasapano incident ay hindi dapat maging batayan ng pagpapatuloy ng usapang pangkapayapaan, at ang pagpapasa ng Bangsamoro Basic Law. ito ay military/police operation, ang Peace Process at BBL legislation ay usaping pampamahalaan, governance aspect.

  2. may point naman si Deles sa sinabi nyang kung pinasok ka bigla ng kung sino ng walang paalam e dedepensahan mo ang sarili mo at pamilya mo. Hindi naman mangyayari ang lahat ng kaguluhang to kung planado at coordinated ang kilos ng kapulisan. May agreement kasi na pinirman ang magkabilang panig pero gobyerno mismo ang unang lumabag.

    Sinabotahe ang Peace Process ng MILF at GPH. Isang panig lang pinapakinggan nyo. Manirahan kayo sa mga lugar namin ng maramdaman nyo ang gyera at ang epekto nito sa tao.

    Kung gi-massacre ng MILF ang SAF, ibig sabihin, gi-massacre din ng SAF ang mga namatay na MILF at Sibilyan. Pareho lang sila ng ginawa. Wag masyado makitid ang utak. Ang ginagawa nyo sa MILF ay pagbabalewala sa karapatan naming mga Bangsamoro na mabuhay ng maayos sa aming mga lugar dito sa Mindanao.

  5. True , it war , nobody wins , lahat talo at may namamatay , ang ipinaglalaban dito is not sino ang maraming namatayan , kungdi kung paanong pinatay . . . . . patay na eh pinatay pa uli at pinagnakawan pa , ano yan baboy . . . double dead . pera pera lang yan mrs. Deles , kumita ka din naman di ba , natural ipagtangol mo mga hinayupak na yan . nakakatulod ka pa ba at kaya mo ipakain sa mga kamaganak mo yan kinikita mo

  6. A simple citizen simply understand that even there’s no final investigation about Mamasapano incident it was so clear that it was a MASSACRE.Kahit ilang bese ba ideny ng MILF we are so young to see all the evidences.Sabihin ng pumasok sa MILF area,nakikiraan lang naman ah..inatake ba sila?it is so impossible na sa daming SAF ang dumaan sa knlang lugar to get Marwan hindi nila alam.Yun ngang single man na pumasok sa lugar nl ns bukana palang ng area nakatimbre na agad.How much more ung 80 o 100 men.nakadaan nga sila eh.Bakit pagbalik pinatay nila?eh kung MILF ang target ng SAF dapat dun cl nagtarget sa kampo nila.hindi ah d ba?Nakikiraan lang sa lupa nila pinatay nila.Sabihin ng hindi nakipag coordinate dahilan na ba yun p[ara patayin sila?eh under peace agreement nga.Pinagtatawanan pa nila habang isa isang inatsek kung buhay o patay.inalisan ng damit at armas para sabihin nila na hindi nila alam na SAF un.Sino ba ang bobo sa usaping ito.At the end of my sentiment….NO BBL!!!!!!!!!pinalulukso lang tayo ng mga teroristang yan!wala sa kanila ang PEACE!NO BBL please lang.

    • Tama ka diyan ‘te. Pinapasok then pagbalik at saka inupakan. Ayaw nang ibang mga kababayan natin ang gulo, ang terrorismo. Sa totoo lang ibang klase mga namumuno diyan, mas nakapangyayari ang mga may hawak na armas at walang say ang mga kinatawan na nasa pamahalaan.
      NO to BBL!

    • Nakikiraan lang??? Pinatay ng MILF??? (May BIFF dun) Una may ceasefire agreement at may peace agreement..unless di mo nabasa o naintindihan ang ibig sabihin ng ceasefire agreement eh magbasa ka muna ha? Kahit nga sa harapan ng bahay mo may dumaang militar ng madaling araw ewan ko kung di ka mataranta. Ano sisigawan mo sila ng Oy pasintabi naman kayo! Nakakatawa logic mo sa ‘nakiraan lang naman’ AT una Massacre a rin ang tawag mo? Hindi lang 44 ang patay ineng magbasa ka naman. 67+ yun…44 SAF, 18 moro fighters, 5 civilians kasama ang isang batang 5 taong gulang na si Sarah. (O wag mo sabihin MILF pumatay kay Sarah?) May isang magsasakang dinukot ang mata at tinadtad ng bala o nabasa mo rin ba yun?? Wag one sided. Tottoong daat may hustisya sa PNP-SAF pero dapat hustisya para sa ‘lahat’ kasama yung mga inosenteng nadamay. At sa huli pa ng post mo NO BBL?? sa in walang TO sa gitna? Bwahahaha. Wow teng yung totoo nabasa mo? Wag ka na magost nakikiuso ka lang din eh…at ikaw ang nakakainit ng dugo eh bwhahaha…

  7. Teresita Deles, Miriam Ferrer and Pnoy must hang for being traitors to the Pilipino people by defending MILF massacre of the 44Brave SAF forces stating that they went into the territory of the MILF and failing to coordinate or seek their permission!What a stupid reasoning! Imagine lettingMILF be informed of SAF secret operations to serve arrests warrants vs two international terrorists whom they give aid, comfort and safekeeping. These two negotiators must be fired of their positions!

  8. Teresita Deles should not resign, she should be fired. She can not even answer the question that we don’t deal with terrorist. She is incompetent to hold that position.

  9. The intense obsession of these three TRAITORS for the immediate passage of the Bangsangmoro Law drove them to be LIARS and disregard the heroic deeds of the Brave 44. The triumvirate traitors (PNOY, DELES and FERRER) justified and defended the MILFORD for the massacre by accusing the SAF forces of going into “exclusive territory” of the MILF without its permission? The SAF Brave 44 died in line of duty for serving arrest warrants to 2 international terrorists (Marwan and Usman) which MILF are giving comfort and aid and safekeeping. Instead of helping the SAF to bring to justice those terrorist, MILF forces massacred the SAF forces instead of at least investigating SAF presence in its area. DELES lost her own logical and patriotic judgment by defending the MILF instead of declaring the peace talk on indefinite hold or basically dead on the water for Its own MILF murderous killings, lack of sincerity and good faith in achieving a truly honest to goodness peace. Pnoy on his part covered up, lied and has been dishonest in not admitting his role in making the “GO”order to the SAF operations and the stand down to military for reinforcements of the sieges SAF units. Pnoy is even influencing his allies in Congress and the police and military in the Senate hearing to cover up for him by not askinf and answering direct question of Pnoy’s personal order and knowledge of the operations. Pnoy is a big liar for his gigantic stupidity and cowardice for not admitting command and personal responsibility in the boondoggled raid. Pnoy incompetence must now reckon with his designating Mar Roxas as his “Deputy 0president” to make sensitive and delicate decision on ticklish issues of national concern in running the government machinery. Pnoy must just be a figure-head and not to quit coz the successor , VP BINAY, is a long-time corrupt official who won’t provide clean governance but will wipe the treasury clean instead! At least Mar Roxas is strait-gorward person and clean image from corruption. Though he might not be a mass appeal kind of politician, Mar is honest. Pnoy must just relax and smoke on the side and look for a wife instead of managing the affairs of the government. That is if Pnoy has sex-appeal with women, who seem to be jilting him after few dates! Why “TULOY LAWAY”. Yakiiiiii!

  10. as always,,,, nothing will happen to this issue. Personal interest makes it hard for the rest of the Filipino’s to survive the wild political circus happening in the Philipines.

    She should watch the massacre on YouTube. Prof Ferrer & Deles is one or the same? Who is in the picture?

    ” the police commandos walked into their own doom when they entered the rebels’ turf without notice.”

    Tell that to Benigno “BS” Aquino III who ordered no to coordinate

  13. Ms. Deles is working for the GRP but does not want this chance for a peace to be doomed. Thus her reaction of sleeping with the enemies. Let’s not give in to emotions. We salute the SAF44. They did not die in vain. Gen. Napenas have lapses in planning. Use of helicopters after the raid could have avoided the tragedy. The AFP were also incompetent (sorry), professional jealousy have hit hard again. But the Commander-in-Chief is not inculpable. Had it been GMA, she would have cordoned the area and declared Martial Law again in the area, until the the MILF/BIFF spew out the killers – even if such moves were vague in constitutionality, she took the risk (Maguindanao Debacle-1).
    I saw PNoy like a minion (Despicable, forgive me, Sir), just like the Luneta Massacre of HongKong tourists way back. He’s in the background, parang isa sa mga uzis. NOT IN CONTROL… Dalian nýo nang umalis diyan, Sir. You’re endangering the Republic, washed by the blood of martyrs, from Gomburza, Rizal, Bonifacio, SAF 44. You’re not half your father…

  14. Deles is pimping for MILF and Malaysia. See how fast she cleared the MILF.
    We want peace but not on terms imposed by MILF and Malaysia. There are other poor Filipinos needing help.

  15. >>> Filipino of the Philippines….. the government is negotiating with the rebels called CPP NDF (National Democratic Front), or government panel called GRP.

    But NOW In Mindanao negotiating NDF became and shows that their on the same side of the rebels, that is why peace agreement proposal or BBL is A BIAS AND MESS.
    It is better to change the government group. Because teh rebels are now became MILF+BIFF+NDF (Noynoy, Deles at Ferrer).

  16. ang “treason” ba ay wala sa bokabularyo ng Pilipinas? andami na nila gumawa nito, at ang iba ay nasa pwesto pa..

  17. Deles argued that the MILF would not have fired shots unless they were attacked.

    >>> Sinabi ni Ms Deles ito dahil ba naroon siya o dahil ito ang sinabi ni M.Iqbal at Murad sa kaniya? Kung naroon siya, bakit hindi napahinto ang putukan?

    “Pinasok nila (SAF) ang (MILF) area,” she argued.

    >>> So what? still that is a part of Philippines and not by any other country or substate. And the PNP-SAF is on their mission to arrest the terrorist.
    >>> And Ms Deles should also explain, if she said also that is the area of MILF, why the terrorist group is also there and hiding?
    Then if not hiding there, why the MILF did not arrested or fire or shoot those BIFF, they ambushed, shoot and killed brutally inhumane the PNP-SAF instead.
    They could not or they will not shoot those BIFF terrorist because most if not all are their relatives. In filipino muslim tradition and culture, they will not shoot or killed any of their relatives kahti anong sama pa ng mga iyon.

      BOBO KA BA?? may ceasefire AGREEMENT NGA AT HINDI PWEDENG BASTA PUMASOK DUN DAHIL LANG SA KABOBOHAN MONG DAHILAN NA SAKOP NG PINAS YUN? OBVIOUSLY DI MO ALAM SINASABI MO! At bago mo tanungin ang MILF kung bakit andun si Marwan sa area ay tanungin mo muna ang gobyerno mismo ng Pilipinas paano nakapasok si Marwan sa Pilipinas…hindi immigration ang kahit anong rebeldeng grupo dun. At eto pa isang katangahan mo >> In filipino muslim tradition and culture, they will not shoot or killed any of their relatives kahti anong sama pa ng mga iyon. <<saang basurahan mo nadampot tong argumentong ganito??? Muslim ka ba?? Kahit anong sama hindi babarilin?? Sinong gunggong nagturo sayo nyan?? At Filiino Muslim Culture ka ang nalalaman? Wag ka na magpost…nangangamoy tae rito! PWE!

  19. the stay of Marwan and Usman within their territory is a clear indication that both groups have conscious knowledge that they are cuddling and protecting wanted international terrorists.

    this fact in itself to me means:

    1. They are not serious as regards to a true and honest peace agreement;
    2. It is an indication that they will use the provinces covered by the BBL as haven for the activities of the international terroristic training activities and protected hiding places for these terrorists;

    that SAF operation in Mamasapano would never ever be successful if they will inform and coordinate their operation with the MILF/BIFF because as cuddlers and protectors, they will never ever surrender Marwan & Usman to authorities. For if their intent was otherwise, that bungled SAF operation should have not taken place.

    secretary deles failed to see this. that whatever circumstance surrounding the Mamasapano, the evidences will glaringly indicate that it was not an act of self-defense! it was a show of terror and what the MILF/BIFF can do within their claimed areas even if they are not yet legally granted. what can you expect when the government grants them the leagl authority to sow terror within these areas? would we just turn our eyes away from these areas when there are people killed in these areas because anyways they are muslims? even if they are innocent civilians? when one is given a gun and with the legal power to use it is always very dangerous. how much more to a group of people who have grown and cultivated a culture of killing even among their kind?

    • in the muslim communities their staple belongings are only two: car and gun/s.. they feel safe and powerful with them… because this is a long cultural practice, the government and the peace panel should knew about this..

    The narrative presented by Mr. Iqbal is based on the Philippines History Book during his time at the elementary and high school level which I presumed was also read by students of his time including those other part of the country , Those narratives were all prepared by historians which sources authenticity is doubtful. As he mentioned that only Muslims area in that part of the country was the only area that we subjugated by Spanish occupiers because of the presence of its fierce warriors. I only remember that only Cota Bato ( Stone Cave ) now Cotabato area was not occupied as mentioned in Hstory Book. He mentioned about the Muslims in Tondo. By citing few lines of the narratives from History books there is a hidden agenda being hatched by the MILF Group supported by Malaysia that Philippines was and integral part of Malaysian archipelago where our Philippines islands was at that time as history book mentioned was commented to Malaysia via a land bridge appearing only during low tide. Future years to come if the BBL will be established, it will be a springboard to claim others parts of the country by gradually putting and dispersing Muslim population all over the country which is by now very visible. Malaysia will be triumphant because our country can be reverted to Malaysian Archipelago. The name Philippines will be vanish and gone, its new name will be Malaysian Maharlika. That’s the reason Malaysia refused to return and surrender Sabah to the Sultan of Sulu.

  21. Deles ang amo si Pnoy, Ang amo ng SAF si Pnoy din, sya nag order sa SAF na pasokin doon si Marwan sa MILF territory, bakit sinisisi mo ang mga sundalo? If BBL sign into Law bibigay nyo kaagad sa MILF P70 billion pesos from the taxpayer money. NO TO BBL.

  22. Deles is sleeping with the enemy.
    Naipangako na kasi ni Deles, Ferer at PNoy ang Mindanao to MILF terrorists. Malaki siguro parte nila sa oil and minerals deposits pagpasa ng BBL…baka nga may naibigay na ang Malaysia sa tatlong traydor na yan!

    • geriatric with Alzheimers is the right word for these three gov. peace panel…i am from mindanao and the peace talk as they say will never prosper as the majority of the populace in mindanao are not aware of such peace talks….

    • Hindi pwede yang “siguro” at “baka” mo dito, walang kawawaan yang sinasabi mo pag ganyan..naipangako na ba kamo? Saan mo nakuha yun? Ako may siguradong pangako sayo; maging pusa ka lang, hahawakan kita spng buong higpit sa buntot..hulaan mo kasunod?

  23. Di ba Deles is peace presidential adviser with honorarium from the Phil. gov’t.? There’s something wrong maybe she’s receiving more from the MILF operational funds.(sideliner).Analysis alone with or without the notice of MILF, their camp is under the gov’t. and with their interest for peace they should be with the party in mission to capture the 2 wanted figures. Since it is their area, they have all the ways to identify who are the groups that is coming. Then they said mis-encounter, so that means a friend is coming but it resulted on casualties so they have to immediately save the visitors as it is a mis-encounter and send to medical facilities to save them but they instead finished the lives of the subject friends, took off their guns and belonging so it is their purpose to kill them. Since MILF could not be trusted a BIG NO to BBL.

  24. I like Deles to keep on blabbering away to defend the MILF, that way she drags Pnoy deeper and deeper in the mud. Imagine, w/o them knowing out they’re tugging at each other downward.

  25. vagoneto rieles on

    As far as the Bongsamoro, the MILF and the MNLF are concerned, the ‘Bangsamoro Basic Law’ is a done deal. Already a reality. To them, Congress’ ratification, the Supreme Court’s vote ofconstitutionality, and the affirmation by a plebiscite would be nice but not necessary..it’s just frosting on the cake. As from the day that the negotiating panels signed the draft and,celebrated the event together, the Bangsamoro had begun its life. This view is supported by Murad Ebrahim’s letter of the 29th December 2014 which, in effect, presumes that the decision of the ‘panel’ reflects the approbation of Congress, the Supreme Court and the President himself. Between the lines, Murad’s letter implies that the ‘peace agreement’ is now cast in stone. I might be very wrong about the Muslim mindset, (and I hope I am); but, going by our experience in dealing with the Muslim, in Marawi, Cotabato and Jolo, I could be right..and we are screwed.
    It is time for the AFP and the PNP to renew their pledge of allegiance to the Republic and the Constitution, to hone their martial skills and, to stay alert at all times. A repeat of ‘Mamasapano’ is not an option.

  26. etong si deles hindi mo alam kung tumatanggap ba to galing sa milf eh. kung ipagtanggol ganon na lang! sabihin mo yan sa lahat ng pamilya ng Fallen 44!

    ikaw dapat sumama dun sa SAF! tingnan natin kung sinasabi mo pa yan ngayon!

    • I agree with you Miss Christine Tan about your opinion, I don’t understand about the mentality Miss Deles. What about if in the 44 fallen Police officers his son is one them, what she would think?

    • you know Joe, even us na hindi relatives or friends ng kahit sino sa Fallen 44, we still have deep sympathy sa ginawa sa kanila ng MILF. But this deles, ewan ko kung anong klaseng tao ito. kung anong klaseng utak at puso meron yan!

      what shes doing now is overkilling again the families of Fallen 44! I pity her!

    • deles nga eh….dapat utak bangus kc ang ang bangus national fish d ba…kya bka sakaling umiral ang pgkapilipino nya…..lol…but anyway para sakin kya gnun n lng ang depensa nya sa milf dhil ma ..lamang mlaki ang share nya

  27. What are written here by bloogers, everything that are said are all agreeable, the fact that Deles’ words are words of a traitor. The triumvirate of BS Coujuangco Aquino III, Deles and Ferrer, are handing out a portion of the republic to the enemy of the state, served on a silver platter.

    There are however, other questions to be raised – how is it that these three still look so smug when they peddle their lies? Who is it that they are counting on to cover their backs or got their backs covered? They seem triumphant with their thought, that no matter how loud an opposition is being made over this BBL, nothing can be done to bring it down.

    All these posturing right now by other members of our lawmaking bodies is just that, and at the end of the day these traitors will walk towards the sunset smiling, without a shadow of guilt, because all they care for is to follow and carry out an order, which was created for the republic by the their handlers.

    The patriots of the republic should not forget this deed, and should continue to remind themselves, that after these traitors are out of office, they should be brought to justice – it must be a justice fit for traitors.

  28. Shame on you Deles, defender of terrorists and secessionists.How much did they pay you to side with
    these lawless terrorists?
    You’re just as incompetent as your
    boss.

    • Deles, Ferrer, and that one star General of the Philippine Army all showed their loyalties are with The MILF during the Mamasapano massacre Senate hearing. These three individuals are sleeping with the enemies. As members of the peace process panel, gov reps, they all tried to justify the killings of the 44 SAF and tried so hard to lay the blame on the PNP instead of blaming the MILF for gunnning down the PNP SAF. The MILFs are harboring and protecting international terrorist, thus they cannot be trusted. These people, MILF, are the ISIS of the Philippines and they must be disarmed and defeated now, not later.

  29. MILF does not have exclusive territory. The SAF and other arms of the Philippines Republic can go anywhere in the Philppines. MILF did not have to shoot SAF, unless they greedily want to get exclusively the $5 million reward to capture Marwan.

  30. Deles must resign or must be fired for incompetence. She gives incredible defenses to protect MILF and save the Bangsamoro Bill. Thrash the bill. Philippines is one nation and there is no sub-nation in the Constitution. Bangsamoro is uncontitutional.

    Again, fire Deles for incompetence.

    • >>> You wanted Deles and ferrer to be fired as negotiator?? Me, I wanted both of them to fuck their mouth and ass.

    • I agree with Henry, “fire Deles……” … but who will fire her?, The Appointing authority is the disciplining authority,, who appointed Deles and the rest of panelists in the negotiating table? Such appointing authority is equally worth firing…ALL of them are LIABLE and ACCOUNTABLE for all these mess.. and for FOOLING the long been fooled filipinos… KILOS na Bayan…

  31. DELES / FERRER KAYO ANG TRAIDOR SA BAYAN,IBINENTA NINYO ANG ANG SAM BAYANANG PILIPINONG MUSLIM AT KRISTIYANO DAHIL KAYO AY PURO ATEHISTA

  32. No nation negotiates with terrorists, except the PH. We even have our negotiator being on the side of the enemy. Only Aquino would think he could control the outcome. He will never admit he was a fool.

  33. Mrs Deles – i strongly urge you to watch that viral video 44times a day, everyday until you resign, the country dont need a menopausal traitor advising the cuckoo batchelor

  34. Ive been writing in my comment way before the Mamasapano massacre that this two demonyitas Deles and Ferrer are traitor and that they commited treason.With this recorded conversation between Sen.Marcos and Deles showed that she is a traitor that the BBL should be null and void because GPH negotiators sided with the enemy of the state the uncivilize MILF and not the Government side.DOJ and NBI should investigate this matter and charge Deles and Ferrer for treason.If found guilty they should be shot in a firing squad made up of SAF police.

    a demented olde hag who has nothing to show for the “piss talk” but loves to go shopping in Kuala Lumpur all the time! also loves playing hokey-pokey with milf terrorists! a certified traitor to the Republic of the Philippines. drop dead you olde cunt!

  36. Leodegardo Pruna on

    Even during the senate hearings, Deles has been lawyering for the MILF the way she has been answering and testifying. The same is true with her co-body Ms. Coronel. Eyeing for the Peace award starting with the Magsaysay award. Please , to the two, be true being a Filipino not only true to yourselves.This just shows the kind of incompetent people manning the cabinet of P-Noy. God bless the Philippines.

  37. this is treason, defending MILF who massacred the 44saf, which only main task was to capture the 2 of the world’s most wanted terrorists…the way those criminals murdered the 44saf shows that they are really terrorists group and should be included in the lists of torrorists group including this negotiator na utak deles….how could she say that their territory? when mindanao is part of the philippines but inhabited by obviously non filipinos like these ugly barbaric muslims people ..

  38. Carl Cid Inting on

    What is very clear, and which Deles cannot deny, is that she is exceedingly submissive to, and extremely protective of, the MILF. She is much more fearful of upsetting the MILF than she is of defending Philippine sovereignty and the rights of Filipinos. In short she has sold her sould to the devil!

  39. what a dumb moron this dilis is. why isn’t she telling that a coordination with the milf is not needed when the gov’t is in pursuit of a highly targeted wanted terrorist and so dapat ilubog na sa kumukulong mantika si dilis para mabawasan na ang pilippines ng mga sugapa sa pera. nakaka highblood talaga ang aquino gov’t na inupo ng pcos machines.

    • Agree, wala tayong makukuhang magandang impormasyon at depensa dyan sa mga yan. Malinaw na malinaw na sa MILF kampi yang mga yan kahit pa kasing kinang na ng araw ang ibidensiya na lehitimong operasyon ang ginawa ng mga kapulisan (SAF) natin. Siya pati si Pnoy/Purisima/Roxas/Gazmin/Catapang at iba pa should pack their bags, go home and just burn their house down which includes them…

  40. jose b. taganahan on

    No matter how i look at her.and hear her speak PRESIDENTIAL Peace Adviser Teresita Quintos-Deles does not look and speak like Christians in Mindanao and should be declared persona non grata by Mindanaoans.

    • >>> Huwag naman, sayang kasi pambili ng gatong at dagdag pollution pa ang kanilang abu at amoy. Ipa-iyot na lamang sila sa kabayo at aso ng pabaligtad.

  41. Mindanao is not a Muslim majority in population . Why handle it to them without even consulting the majority Christian who lives there. Deles is so obsessed in BBL that even if she talk against our SAF commando its ok for her. Hindi na Niya hinimay ang situation . For her it’s BBL that’s important not the future negative outcome of BBL . She like to be remember as the mother of BBL. Deles shame on you. You make the Philippines NOT WORTH DYING FOR. We don’t need separate group to handle Mindanao what we need is for Rebels to follow the government laws. Seles if she has still a little delikadeza should resign from her post. We don’t need a traitor .

  42. If you believe that the MILF are men of integrity then you believe there is a tooth fairy. Deles is confused as to who are the good guys. The SAF are the good guys and the MILF and BIFF are the bad guys. The SAF were there to enforce the law which is to apprehend Marwan. The SAF are law enforcement officers of the Philippine government Ms. Deles. Why would they coordinate their mission with the MILF when they are harboring the fugitive Marwan, are you that naive that they will not warn Marwan that the good guys are coming! The Philippines already have a constitution that guarantees the right of every citizen, no matter the religion that they belong to. We do not need Sharia law, which is the ultimate goal of the MILF and BIFF. That law belongs to the dark ages. Scrap BBL!!

    • apolonio reyes on

      Tama, sabi nga ni FVR, bakit hindi naglgay si Pnoy ng ” TWO BATTLED TESTED GENERALS AS PEACE NEGOTIATORS “. Sa aking lang, tama si FVR na hindi dapat isang ” TB at Colnel ” na walang experience sa mga MILF na mga malaki na ang experienced hindi lamang sa labanan sa Mindanoa pagka’t taga duon at katoto pa ang Malaysian kundi by-product ng MNLF habang ang atin mga representatives ay may pusong mamon. Di ba Dan ?

  43. Deles should resign and she should be charged with TREASON!
    The MILF leaders themselves say where Marwan and Usman had their huts was/is not in their actual so-called territory. But MILF fighters together with their partners in crimes, the allegedly breakaway group BIFF warriors, killed the PNP SAF men when they had finished their mission to arrest internationally wanted terrorists Marwan whom they killed and Usman whom they wounded but escaped. Yet, Deles, without knowing all the facts on Jan 26 was already absolving those MILF murderers and their leaders!

  44. to deles: that’s the question, how in the world a wanted terrorist had beenn in the milf territory? pakisagot!

  45. Seriously misguided Presidential Peace Adviser Teresita Deles, instead of putting the blame on the MILF for the deaths of our 44 SAF officers, blamed our the SAF men for walking ‘to their own doom by entering the rebels’ turf without notice”.

    Excuse me, but why do the SAF men have to notify anybody to serve a lawful order to apprehend the fugitive terrorists Marwan and Usman? It is common knowledge that the terrorist groups MILF and BIFF were coddling these fugitives and to let anyone in Mamasapano know about the operation is to give the fugitives a chance to escape. The SAF officers were authorized by our government on this lawful mission and they had all the rights to enter any area within our country without permission, whether these areas are rebels’ turfs or not. Mamapasano and the rest of Mindanao belong to the Philippines and therefore under the authority of our government. To suggest that the rebels own Mamasapano is plain stupidity.

    Teresita Deles had casted doubts on the legitimacy of the mission of the SAF in suggesting they should have asked permission first from the rebels. Instead of honoring our brave fallen SAF officers, she had dishonored them. For her siding with the enemies of the State, she should resign.

  46. The REAL FILIPINO PATRIOTS are now surfacing – Marcos, Estrada, Castellano, Santiago. They are standing up for their country. Everyone else – especially Aquino and his minions ARE TRAITORS who are either OR IGNORANT, or are, in fact, ENEMIES OF THE PHILIPPINES.

  47. vagoneto rieles on

    This is a very insular and naive view of the current situation in the Philippines and of the world. It could only come from those who have lived a sheltered life..like President Aquino, and Mesdames Coronel-Ferrer and Quintos-Deles, (these ladies should decide whose name to use..father’s or husband’s). One wonders whether the activities of organizations like Jemaah Islamiya; Bokko Haram; and ISIS are still unclear to such people who, unfortunately for the country, hold positions of power and influence.
    The MILF, MNLF, BIFF, and the Abu Sayyaf, like the organizations earlier mentioned, are violent militant Muslim organizations whose followers prefer not to be Filipino, Indonesian, Nigerian or Iraqi. Rather, they are Muslims who aspire to being citizens of a Caliphate that would, one day, dominate every man, woman and child worldwide. They all sing from the same hymn book..a manual that governs religion, justice, politics, education and all other aspects of life…the Quran. The sooner we accept this reality, the better our chances are for preserving our own culture, our religion, our way of life..and our sovereignty.
    The world that we live in today is what it is. Let’s deal with it. Let’s not wear rose-colored glasses and pretend that we could draft peace pacts and make accommodations..and everyone will live happily ever after.

  48. MILF leadership are lying that they didn’t know Marwan was there. Why?

    (1) Based on AFP intel report, some MILF fighters have gone through basic training in making bombs with Marwan.

    (2) They knew that they are shooting at the SAF forces because there was a constant communication between those who MILF who learned about the presence of 300+ SAF forces in the main highway and those MILF who are shooting the SAF.

    (3) The knew about Marwan’s presence in the MILF territory but they allowed him to stay. After all he is a fellow Muslim brother.

    You cannot see things objectively Ms Deles because your primary mission is to make the peace negotiation a success.

    But the greatest blame should be placed on the President of the Republic for the following reason:

    (1) For approving the mission and doing nothing to send military reinforcement pronto.

    (2) For allowing Purisima to meddle with the operation despite of the fact, he was already suspended.

    (3) For lying before the public and not admitting he prioritize the peace talk more than protecting the lives of SAF.

    (4) For allowing a cover up for his actions or inaction during the firefight.

    (5) For being absent at the arrival honors. He prioritized those who are celebrating in a Japanese owned manufacturing plant than those we are grieving for the lose of our very own PNP SAF.

    • And may i add, Penoy is a triator for not condenming the atrocities of the MILF and instead blamed the SAF who he sent to their death. why did he not point to Purisima whom he entrusted this Oplan Exodus.

  49. Is Deles on “our” side or “their” side? BTW, I’ve never trusted Deles from the very beginning. May pagka-“kabilan” sya.

  50. Nakakasuka na this Deles! Why is she championing the MILF over our SAF troopers. In her statement, it is obvious she is blaming the SAF troopers for walking into MILF territory.

    But isn’t it relevant and necessary for the SAF to storm into the MILF territory if they are to follow the Order from the Abnoy and to carry out their mission to arrest Marwan.

    Unless, what I suggested earlier in another publication is the better solution, which is to have the MILF be the ones to capture Marwan since Marwan was in their territory after all. The Abnoy could have coordinate with Commander Iqbar to be the one to arrest Marwan. MILF would have proven their good faith by cooperating in the arrest.

    This Deles is proving herself a traitor to the country and to the constitution by her defense of the MILF and the BBL which has already been found to be unconstitutional by constitutional experts.

  51. Anong klaseng kapangyarihan ang ipinagkaloob ni Aquino kay deles upang ganoon na lang kung sugurin at pressurin ang senator Marcos!
    Halang din ang kaluluwa nitong si tomboy deles,para baliwalain niya ang pagkamatay ng SAF44!
    Mas mahalaga sa kanya ang karangalan makakamit niya kapag naipasa BBL at marahil ang matatanggap niyang pa buya!
    Malamang ito rin ang nag-advice kay Aquino na wag magpadala ng reinforcement upang hindi lumala ang laban!
    Sana maisama din ang mga ito sa imbestigahan!dapat sa mga traidor ay makulong!!

  52. Why is Deles so inclined to defend the Muslims after acknowledging that more information was needed to know what really happened. With the little information they had, the tendency would be to sympathize with SAF because of the many deaths suffered. That’s a bad indication of the kind of predisposed attitude she has in dealing with the Muslims.

  53. LISTEN… mam deles, KUNG WALA KA PAKIALAM SA AMING MGA PINOY, MALAKI PAKIALALM KO.. SA-AN BA MAY PEACE NA MAY MUSLIM DITO SA MUNDO … IF YOU CAN PINPOINT ONE COUNTRY NA NAKI-PAGPEACE ANG KAHIT ISANG MUSLIM , I WILL FAST FOR 6-MONTHS IF ONLY TO ASK THE ALMIGHTY TO HELP US… ANG AMERICA NGA … TELL ME KUNG MAY NAGAWA SA PEACE ,, PEACE NA YAN … Gusto ni simeon magpakahiro … GIVEN THE CHANCE, UUBUSING KATAYIN NG MGA MUSLIM LAHAT ANG NON- MUSLIM DAHIL MALIGAYA SILA KUNG LAHAT TAO SA MUNDO EH MUSLIM AND THAT’S THE TRUTH .. ANYBODY WHO PRETENDS TO SAY OTHERWISE IS UP TO SOMETHING GOOD FOR HIMSELF / HERSELF BUT VERY BAD FOR THE REST OF THE FIL. PEOPLE AND THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE . PARANG AWA MO NA DELES ,, KAWAWA NAMAN NEXT GENERATIONS

  54. For the responsibilities and how high in government Deles and Ferrer are, they do not seem to understand Geneva Conventions. The MILF are thugs, and it will be stupid for gobyerno-Pilipinas to reward them with BBL.

    Thugs!!! As reported in the media, autopsy shows that execution of PNP-SAF — body-armor first removed, then shots to body to murder PNP-SAF troops. And Deles says “…okay lang, MILF wants peace at mababait naman ang MILF…”.

  55. The trouble with Teresita Deles is that she refuse to differentiate between the truth and big LIES. She has the knack to twist the truth and make it appear as lies especially if the information comes from video tapes uploaded by concerned nitizens. She behaves like her boss Abnoy who is a congenital liar. These son-of-a-bitches thinks that the Filipinos are all bobo and brainless. Look at the body language of Muslim boss Mohagher Iqbal, when he talk during the investigation, he doesn’t raise his eyes to have an eye contact with the audience. He kepts on looking down and avoid looking at the public. Psychologically, when a person talk without an eye to eye contact with his audience, he is deemed a traitor and dangerous. He manifests a different behavior, an indication that he can’t be TRUSTED. So our crazy and corrupt politicians should beware of Muslims because their culture is tainted with devilish and satanic ingredients hence, a terrorists per se no matter how Iqbal, et al, denies it. Senator Bongbong Marcos is downright CORRECT when he suspended the hearing on BBL. Sen. Marcos should convince his colleagues that there is no sense resurrecting the BBL hearing. Let PNoy and his yellow mob supporters go to hell.

  56. go to hell ms deles! how could you blame the SAF for having done its duty to serve a warrant and arrest marwan? you are just as incompetent as your boss! pnoy that is! there was nothing wrong with the SAF having done what they have done. nobody in their right frame of mind will inform the enemy, the milf that is, knowing full well that these good for nothing revolutionaries are cuddling the number one terrorist of southeast asia. the bin laden of asia. regardless of what happened next, the SAF commandos did not have to die the way some of them did. and if you ms. deles don’t get that, i suggest you go to hell with the rest of the milf, the biff, and the president. you are all useless! you and pnoy are nothing but good friends of the enemy! therefore, you all can go to hell!!!

  57. Let’s look at the evidence, the testimonies of those who were there and witnessed what happened, the videos or actual video footages, the autopsy report. The evidence will speak for itself.

    I entrust the matter to our officers of justice to say whether they are guilty or not of murdering the PNP SAF 44. Sec. Deles is only an appointed member of a peace panel.

    I also want peace, but I want truth and justice. I also want our country to have religious freedom. I do not want to give P70B ++ 75% share in taxes? We should give it to law abiding citizens, the AFP and PNP who defend our government, and not those who advocate revolution against it. There is no sense in that.

    Under our current constitution, the wordings as regards Sabah claim was lost, today, in this current administration, we could loose Mindanao to a minority religion.

    Those who live in Mindanao can elect their leaders of their choice. They have local taxing powers plus share in our internal revenue. Let’s respect the will of the Mindanaoans right to choose their leaders. Why let few chosen people control the political course of Mindanao?

    I want peace, but I think it is wrong to say that we should approve “their agreement” otherwise we will be in great trouble. That is sort of a coercion, threat or blackmail. Laws should not be made out of cowardice or fear.

    But I am for the development Mindanao both for Muslims, Christians and all other inhabitants of Mindanao. There should be equality in the administration of justice, wealth or privilege, and all opportunities.

    In Metro Manila, Muslims can peacefully walk our streets, do business in malls, and even sidewalks. They have a mosque. My classmate in law school was a Muslim, he was accorded an above average treatment. My former partner in work, a Maranaw, was I Muslim, and we worked together well.

    I have a godson who is a son of a Muslim doctor. Customers who are Muslims, including local officials of Maguindanao. As long as there is a just athmosphere there will be peace. But that requires justice from both sides.

  58. Naomi Parcon Tsujino on

    We don’t need Deles, anong klasing adviser yan? She is against us. We do’t need MILF to protect Mindanao. Our soldiers are good enough to protect our country. This is our country. Foreigners should follow the law of the Philippines. I suggest, the Govt. should check the citizenship of the MILF kung talagang pinanganak sila sa Philippines. I suggest to improve our immigration system in Mindanao. All of us know that with just a small ship people from Malaysia and Indonesia can reach Mindanao easily. As I know Rebels are enemy of our Govt.. It is just like you give a weapon to your enemy to kill you. Bakit hindi tayo pinapayagang magkaroon ng weapon to protect ourselves and our country? Bakit pinayagang magkaroon ng sariling laye ang MILF tapos pinayagang magkaroon ng factory ng weapon para pumatay ng ating kapwa? Kung wala silang mga armas hindi namatay ang SAF44.
    Hindi kaya Inambush ng MILF any reinforcement na papasok to protect Zulkifli bin Hir or Marwan? Doon nga nagtatago sa kanila dahil magkaisa sila right? Bakit nila nasabi na terretoryo nila ang lugar na yan e nasa mapa pa ng pilipinas yan de ba? Bakit tayo nagpakagago sa mga Rebelde na yan? Akala ko maraming mga matalino sa malacanang? Bakit hindi naisip ng lahat…sa Mindanao ang kidnapping…sa mindanao namamatay ang sundalo natin…sa mindanao nagtatago ang mga international killer tulad ni Marwan…sa Mindanao ang maraming abduction at malalaking ransom….sino sa akala nyo ang gumagawa nyan? Siempre dahil nasa mindanao ang mga rebelde…at sila lang ang may mga weapon na mas powerful pa kaysa ating sundalo. Soooo funny…nakakahiya na talaga…tumatawa ang ibang nation sa atin…dito sa Negros 99% out of 1000 citizen ayaw sa peace process…at buong puso kaming nagmamakaawa kay noynoy na umalis na sa malacanang. NO TO BBL! STEP DOWN NOYNOY!

  59. “Ang lumalabas niyan ay ang gobyerno ng Pilipinas ang “nakikisayaw” sa tugtug ng MILF”; not the other way around. The government shows weakness and the MILF strength. One can just imagine what happens if the BBL is approved; more problems because there are other groups who were not. but should have been, represented in the agreement. By then, while they clamor for participation, the MILF a;ready have the strength to exclude them, which will lead to more chaos. Meanwhile, the Philippine government is weakened with the provisions being questioned, such as ceding some powers of the government and territorial domain of the country to the MILF. Are we forgetting the fact that that this group has close ties with Malaysia?

  60. PRUDENCE is needed now that the “can” of worms has opened up.

    Although the complete text of the BBL will be subjected to scrutiny by our lawmakers following the proper procedure before it is presented to the President for signing and eventually implemented/executed, the possibilities that are not discountable are numerous in that:

    1) there is an apparent attempt at giving the Bangsamoro a semblance of having “their own state” within the Philippine state.

    2) Malaysia’s brokering the peace talks is now suspect as they have in the past taken what was part of our territory (Sabah).

    3) The intent to harbor terrorists in “their land” is very obvious. How to handle this situation when allowed to prosper through the BBL is very difficult and complex a matter for our country’s leadership’s competency.

    4) Had not the Mamasapana tragedy happened, the issues now brought to the nation’s attention by virtue thereof could not have surfaced and earned a much thorough review. We all seek peace, but peace should be attained within the purview of safeguarding the sacredness of our country’s sovereignty on top of everything that is material to the creation/granting of the Bangsamoro autonomy within the Philippines. It is now clear that indications in this respect are pointing to disregarding our country’s sovereignty in exchange for autonomy of a 7,000 strong band of fighters without even including other stakeholders for peace in Mindanao such as the other Muslim tribes of the Tausogs, among others.

    5) Clarity and absolutely without error in defining who we are making a peace treaty with, the MILF should come clean to the negotiating table as the only entity our country’s government deals with, therefore, BIFF and MILF rebels who defy legitimate, legal and peaceful existence should be openly regarded as lawless elements in society and should be treated with the full force of the law. They must be deemed criminals by no less than the MILF if it desires to be regarded as a legitimate counter in the peacemaking process.

    6) Achievement of peace takes time. We should not hurry to craft a law to secure peace without considering EVERYTHING that it has met or will meet head on when it is already executed or implemented. For what has been created and done cannot be changed or undone with swiftness and urgency when such is found imperative due to grave errors or misreading of the signs obviously detrimental to our national security. We must give peace a chance, yes! by all means but peace won’t last when wisdom and uprightness are wanting among those involved in the entire process.

  61. Nasira na ang ulo nitong government negotiator for peace. Hindi nakikita ni Deles ang ginawa ng MILF na violation of war as agreed in the Geneva Convention in which those opposition who can no longer fight are suppose to be left untouch, if wounded, give medical attention, etc. IT IS A VIOLATION THAT OPPOSING SIDE SHOULD SHOOT THEIR ENEMIES IN THE FACE WHILE THEY ARE STILL ALIVE. GAGO ITONG MATANGDANG ITO. Hostile si Deles to the SAF. And I would not be surprise if Deles is at the payroll of the MILF. Just look at her body language during the Senate and Lower House hearing. This woman share the opinion of PNoy to expedite passing the BBL in spite of anything. And now, we realize that 80 billion pesos is at stake. 80 billion pesos of hard earn money by take payer will be given to the MILF tax free. Ano kayo hilo!

  62. Deles and her sidekick, two non-Mindanaoans are excitable groupies too eager to sell BBL to the lawmakers even at the expense of the Filipino Policemen lives who were taken at Mamasapano…such cold blooded individuals…what a shame…

    • Anong “Sell the BBL”? Anong sinasabi mo? Akala mo ba si Deles at ang mga taga-gobyerno ang pinaka-naghirap para sa BBL, para sa peace process?

      Matagal at patuloy na nakikibaka ang mamamayang Moro para sa kapayapaan at katarungan. Ang sinasabi mong “cold-blooded individuals” ay sinu-sino ba? Kasama ba dito ang mga pumatay, nag-torture, nanggahasa, nanunog ng mga bahay at iba pang ari-arian, at gumawa ng iba pang karahasan sa aming mga Muslim?

      O kapag hindi Muslim ang gumawa ay hindi na karumal-dumal para sa iyo? Huwag din ninyong kalimutan na bukod sa mga MILF, BIFF, at mga sibilyan; may mga Muslim din na SAF na namatay sa Mamasapano.

      Nakakalungkot ang nangyari dahil pare-pareho tayong namatayan. Dahil lang hindi sinunod ang mga naunang napag-usapan na gagalangin ang teritoryo habang may peace process na nagaganap.

  63. Haaaayyyy Nakuuuuu! on

    Are you saying Ms. Deles, that the president a grave mistake by commanding the SAF to enter the territory of the MILF?

  64. i watched d Senate proceeding live via streaming reg d above matter.Sadly,i can only surmised that Deles and Miriam Ferrer both are heartless ,unpatriotic defending d MILF at all cost to the point of blaming d SAF personnels/Heroes 44 of intruding into…. MILF ground/area.It was a double jeopardy for our heroes who were there to serve a warrants and arrest Marwan/Usman.Our heroes were “denied”any help/reinforcements from d AFP(from the proceedings u can deduced that d 1st sms for help were transmitted by OIC PNP to Gen.Gurrero .early before 6am..then come Deles/ferrer isinuating (or rather blaming) our SAF troopers of intruding into MILF territory and allegedly firing at d MILF which triggers d firefight.What Senator Alan said is precised.Milf coddled d terrorists.what were they doing in MILF area.Years of “squatting’ there without the MILF notice?Training the MILF personnels on bomb making etc…Yes,Both Deles/ferrer are blind to the extent of accusing our heroes and sacrificing our kababayan lives ,just to achieve their so called peace pact with MILF ..Shame on u two!.Sen.Alan is damn right,u dont negotiate with terrorists.Btw Deles/ferrer pls read again the “peace agreement” which stipulates that in d event of a valued/high target the govt…do not have to inform the Milf…blah blah…..I wish both of u were at d battlefield then u will face d reality that d MILF were/are playing “marbles” with u. Just like d adage “old trees dont bend” so don’t feigned ignorance like Gen.Purisma and d other 3 generals.

  65. sonny dela cruz on

    Is this the kind of Filipinos today, like Deles. Defending the action of the Moros instead of our government troops with a legitimate mission to arrest one international and one local terrorist killing filipinos? No matter what the action of the pnp, they are performing their duty in the jurisdiction of the Republic of the Philippines not in another country. Deles does not need to be prosecuted if she violated any laws, she should be stone to death by the filipino people for treason against the Republic of the Philippines. I am sure she is paid or a promise of big money that is why she is desperate to have the BBL approved by the legislators. This is all about MONEY not peace. Ferrer should be stone too.

  67. deles is another one of the incompetent officials who does not know anything about mindanao. agreement at the price of justice is a cowardly cop out from an administration who seeks only to prop up an inutile leader.

  68. Deles’ narrative – “they entered the turf without notice” Turf? An area which these gangs called MILF, BIFF, etc assert their “authority”? Why Madam Kirat, is that place not a part of the Republic of the Philippines? You talk about advance notice? To alert those lowlifes to hide the terrorists?
    Where are you coming from? What kind of brain cells do you have in that coconut of yours? Peace is desired but never a singular motivation of one party. Did you not know that?
    I have met you many times before, including your twin who responds by the name Dinky Soliman. Until now, I cannot understand why you landed in the cabinet of Madam Arroyo and now in this hocus-pocus president daw- such ordinary intellect, incapable of multi-dimensional analysis of the fundamental requirements of peace and development.

    • Dilis bakit mo pinagpipilitan na teretoryo nila , MILF yon, utak dilis ka talaga. Dapat kasi hindi sa Malaysia ginanap ang peace talk, hindi naman neutral at maka MILF yan.

    • I don’t get why you have to label Ging Deles as “kirat”. And you have the gall to call the MILF as “lowlifes” when it is clearly you who are resorting to the lowest form of argumentation—-name-calling.

      Well, what can I expect from an apparent fan of Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. I have no idea how you manage to respect the most hated president (or prolly second to Marcos) in the history of the Philippines while you are insulting the intellect of a respected cabinet official.

      I bet you have no idea of the history of the Moro people’s struggle for peace and justice. Heck, I bet you don’t even care to read the BBL before implying that it equates to “peace at all cost”.

      I don’t even know if replying to this irritating post of yours is worth of my precious time.
