Dapat mag-spot check sa massacre site ang mga imbestigador
… pati mga opisyal ng gobyerno na resource persons
Ni Apolinario Villalobos

Upang maging kapani-paniwala ang resulta ng imbestigasyon nila sa Mamasapano massacre, dapat ay pumunta sa Mamasapano ang mga senador. Sa imbestigasyon kay Binay ay nag-spot check ang mga imbestigador, kaya dapat ay pumunta din sila sa Mamasapano dahil may narinig sa ibang senador na wala silang kaalam-alam sa kung ano ba ang hitsura ng lugar na pinangyarihan ng massacre. Baka kapag nakita na nila ang kapatagang tinamnan ng mais na tinakbuhan ng mga minasaker, kaya animo ay naging mga practice target sa shooting gallery ay mababawasan na ang mga walang katurya-turyang mga tanong nila na nagpapatagal lang ng imbestigasyon.

Dapat ay sumabay na rin ang mga nagmamagaling na mga kongresista, na todo ang self-introduction bago magtanong. Dahil sa ginawang self-introduction na kumain ng maraming minuto, kaunting panahon na lang ang natira para sa pagtatanong. Nang sitahin na ng moderator, nakipag-away pa. Doon sa Mamasapano, magsawa sila sa kaiimbistiga at sa katatanong…kung gusto nila, mag-overnight pa sila…magtayo ng tents sa gitna ng maisan kung saan ay minasaker ang mga bayaning SAF 44, para ma-feel nila ang ginagawang pag-imbistiga. Sana ma-meet din nila ang mga BIFF upang maimbistigahan din dahil namatayan din daw.

Dapat sumama ang hepe ng BIR upang ma-asses din ang bahay na tinirhan ni Marwan, kung may buwis bang maipapataw, at baka may makita rin siyang iba pa lalo na yong mga nagtitinda ng tilapia, daing na dalag, pastil at tinagtag. Isama si Dinky Soliman kung may dapat bigyan ng mga pinakatago-tagong relief goods na hindi “inubos” (bakit?) ipamigay sa mga biktima ng bagyong Yolanda – kung may natira pa dahil sa nangyaring nakawan na “parang wala lang”.

Sumama na rin dapat si Mar Roxas dahil may mga nagtatanong kung may mga ongoing projects ang gobyerno sa Mamasapano, huwag lang siyang umiyak sa site. May nagtanong din kasi na kung maayos naman ang mga proyekto bakit may mga sumama sa grupo ng terorista (wow!!!). Kailangan ding sumama si de Lima bilang kalihim ng Hustisya for obvious reason. Sumama din ang namumuno ng Human Rights dahil maraming mga taga-roon sa Mamasapano ang namatay, pati na mga MILF at BIFF, at may mga taniman din ng mais na napinsala…kawawa naman ang mga magsasakang kababayan natin na nanginginig pa siguro dahil sa takot. At lalong dapat sumama si Purisima, upang ma-feel niya ang epekto ng “pagpayo” niya kay Napeῆas na huwag makipag-coordinate sa AFP at OIC ng PNP….dahil siya na daw ang bahala sa dalawa!…baka si presidente gusto ring sumama bilang “guest”…pagbigyan!

Huwag na palang isama si senadora Miriam dahil may sakit siya, lalo na at dumadanas ng cancer pain. Dapat siyang alagaan dahil sa hanay ng mga senador, siya lang ang may common sense at tapang na bumato ng mga nararapat na tanong sa mga resource persons. Sapat na yong ginawa niyang matapang na pambabara sa mga taong pakialamero maski suspendido, mga sinungaling at may sakit na kalimot sa Senate hearing na dinaluhan niya. Sana ay gawin niya uli ang pambabara sa susunod na hearing at baka sakaling may bumigay sa mga sinungaling, pagkalipas ng ilang gabing hindi pagkatulog dahil sa bangungot at kurot ng konsiyensiya!

Baka gusto ng mga pumunta sa Mamasapano na umupa ng eroplano ng Cebu Pacific nang makapag-avail ng murang pamasahe, siguraduhin lang nilang hindi sila mapagsarhan ng check-in counter…sigurado magmumura sila! Kailangan pala nilang mag-load sa cellphone dahil baka kailangan nilang mag-text…epektibo “yata” ito kaya may pagtitiwalang ginagamit na komunikasyon pati ng military at PNP….maski sa gitna ng barilan.

Suggestion o payo lang po ito…take it or leave it!

The Senate Hearing on Mamasapano Massacre Haplessly Exposed the Weaknesses of the PNP and the Military to the Terroristic Elements that Freely Roam around the Country

The Senate Hearing on Mamasapano Massacre
Haplessly Exposed the Weaknesses of the PNP and the Military
To the Terroristic Elements that Freely Roam Around the Country
By Apolinario Villalobos

The senators wrongly thought that they are giving light to the Mamasapano massacre. Clearly, they lacked the guidelines, or if ever there were, they deviated from them, because some questions were leading to the confidential security matters. In their enthusiasm in asking questions, they forgot that there are still active operations for the capture of Usman and the “graduates” of his and the allegedly dead Marwan’s bomb-making trainings.

The senate should have only concentrated on establishing as to who called the shots that launched the unfortunate operation resulting to the death of the forty-four and wounding of other SAF commandos. They should not touch on the fine details on how the operation was done. The lack of coordination and severance of the chain of command can surface to establish the people responsible for the lapses without going to the fine details as to the kind of weapons and rounds of bullets used, movements of units, etc. Unfortunately, Napeῆas was even forced to divulge the details of how the SAF made plans for their operations which was uncalled for.

The Senate hearing has put the country into another delicate situation. I dread to think of what will happen next, after it has been known that the PNP is practically lacking in the necessary defensive and offensive equipment. What will happen now after the exposure of the military that can be made helpless by a simple “miscoordination”? Clearly, they lack thoroughness and resourcefulness. And add to those, their total dependence on a commercial communication facility that can be jammed – the cellphone!

Very clearly, it has been established that the bomb-making “factories” are in Mindanao and that the bomb makers who benefited from the training provided to them by the international terrorists are not roaming only around that southern island, but other parts of the country, especially, Manila. And with the allegation that the MILF is cuddling them in connivance with the BIFF and that both still have connection with international terrorists, is the country, especially Mindanao, still assured of peace as promised by the Bangsamoro Basic Law?

If the Senate would like to improve the coordinative relationship between the security agencies of the country, this should be done behind closed doors, as it involves confidential systematic operations. They should stop the hearing as soon as they have pinned down who called the shots in the launching of operation at Mamasapano. The MILF cannot be forced to accept the fact that it cuddles the terrorists, although, intelligence information has established that they are hiding within their “territory”. The MILF cannot even “touch” the BIFF, their breakaway group. With the strong stand of the MILF, the rest of the effort of the Senate will be futile.

In view of the Senate’s helplessness due to the blatant hand washing and finger-pointing, they better turn their attention to the Bangasamoro Basic Law, as the ball is in their hands, if it still deserves to be passed. Overall, the Senate hearing is doing an irresponsible process. But who would like to stop an opportunity for grandstanding, in view of the approaching 2016 election? Meanwhile, the MILF should thank Deles and Ferrer for speaking on its behalf, in the name of the half-cooked peace process….
