Mamasapano encounter: The cheapest battle for the MILF

PDFPrintE-mail

(BY: REX MIRAVITE) Due to utmost secrecy of the Mamasapano operation even the chief of Staff of the AFP and OIC Chief PNP were denied of knowing the plan.

The police operation became the most controversial ever carried out by the PNP since its creation in 1991.

The President who is the commander-in-chief of all the armed forces of the Philippines and armed services of the government must not be deprived of having experienced and veterans advisers on National Security.

The fundamental causes of the massacre of 44 PNP SAF commandos were greed, mistrust and dissatisfaction.

Purisima, the suspended and resigned PNP Chief, was a fortune seeker who wanted to go back to his post after the suspension period, was the chief planner on Oplan Exodus.

Purisima who wanted to claim credit alone by himself if the operation has succeeded did not coordinate with the AFP, did not inform the OIC Chief PNP and DILG Secretary in advance about the operation until it has started in the morning of 25 January 2015 was a clear indication that Purisma has an ulterior motive.

As a result the Mamasapano encounter became the cheapest Battle for the MILF where they have routed a company of SAF commandos who were massacred like sitting ducks in the corn land without cover and concealment.
