The Enrile ‘ambush’

/ 01:33 AM October 22, 2012

If Enrile was really ambushed inside Wack Wack Subdivision on the eve of the declaration of martial law, the unsuccessful assassins must be the descendants of the Keystone cops with brains the size of a peanut.

Not even a moron would ambush the second-most powerful man in the country inside Wack Wack Subdivision, which is a gated and well-guarded enclave of the very rich. In the evening, the time when Enrile was supposedly ambushed, there were only two gates in the subdivision where entry and egress were allowed: the gate near the main entrance of the Wack Wack Golf Club and the gate leading to Ortigas Avenue, in front of La Salle Greenhills. Any motorized assassin could easily have been stopped at any of the gates and arrested. And what indeed were the security escorts of Enrile doing? Why did they not give chase to the alleged assassin?

Whereas if the Enrile ambush were indeed fake, which it obviously was, what better place to stage such a charade than inside a private subdivision, away from the sight of public motorists and pedestrians?—CARLOS ESTEBAN JR., [email protected]
