Tulfo’s take on Ninoy’s assassination

05:03 AM August 22, 2018

What is happening to Ramon Tulfo? His Aug. 18 article, “Did Ninoy mastermind assassination?”, almost had me falling off my seat while having breakfast! I sincerely hope his closeness to President Duterte has not permanently warped his way of thinking, too.

Tulfo said he had interviewed former Air Force Sgt. Pablo Martinez (now deceased) who told him that he knew about the plot to assassinate Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr.; that “it was he [Martinez] who provided Galman with the… revolver used in killing Ninoy”; and that Ninoy himself knew that he was going to be done in the moment he got out of the plane, etc.


Just one question for Tulfo: Has it not occurred to him that if, indeed, Ninoy was in on that plot, Martinez, who spilled the beans to him during that interview, would have categorically told him that, too?

And by the way, Egyptian queen Cleopatra committed suicide following the defeat of her army against Octavian Augustus who became the first emperor of Rome, preferring death to dominance by the latter. Where’s the
connect, Mr. Tulfo?
