A ‘pattern’ in the Mindanao bombings

10:05 PM August 20, 2013

The people of Mindanao are quite uneasy with the disturbing series of bombings in the island. The pattern is very ominous. During the time of the disgraced rule of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, bombings occurred in Mindanao when scandals beset her administration.

Now, we have Malacañang facing an embarrassing allegation—a $30-million bribery scandal involving a sister of President Aquino. Then suddenly, bombings are everywhere in Mindanao. What coincidence!

The operators of Arroyo look like they still dominate the intelligence unit of Malacañang. This may explain the pattern.
