Mistrust, dissatisfaction, greed fundamental causes of defeat


(BY: REV. MIRAVITE) The massacre of 44 SAF Commandos at Mamasapano, Maguindanao on 25 January 2015 by the MNLF could be principally attributed to the rifts among PNP top brasses and lack of trust to the military leadership.

The animosity between the DILG Secretary and resigned PNP Chief Purisima developed when the office of the Ombudsman slapped at 6 months suspension on former PNP Chief, Dir. Gen. Allan Purisima on charges of graft and corruption.

Purisima’s lawyer questioned the authority of the DILG Secretary to implement the suspension but Sec. Mar Roxas invoked his authority to serve the suspension order.

Purisima who was on suspended status who allegedly called the shots during the SAF operation code named “Exodus” to arrest international terrorist Marwan instructed sacked SAF Commander Police Director Getulio Napenas not to inform Sec. Roxas and OIC PNP Dep. Dir. Gen. Leonardo Espina and not to coordinate with the AFP to prevent leakage to the MILF and other armed groups until the operation has started.

These lapses and blunders were aggravated by greed not to share credit with anyone when the operation succeeds.

National Security was at stake and the lives of 44 SAF Commandos were sacrificed because of mistrust, dissatisfaction and greed.
