President Aquino unmasked as American puppet

/ 12:10 AM February 05, 2016

The Mamasapano hearings further exposed President Aquino as a puppet of the United States. It has been established that the bloody offensive was a US-backed operation and that US agents, possibly from the notorious Central Intelligence Agency, were directly involved. No less than the puppet President was tapped to direct the operation.

Clearly, Mr. Aquino has committed treason. To please his master, the obedient puppet secretly mounted an unlawful offensive, tapping a suspended official to monitor the operation for him, thus breaking the chain of command as well as the ceasefire agreement with the Bangsamoro. This led to the death of more than 60 Filipinos, 44 of whom were his government’s police operatives.


Blood is in Mr. Aquino’s hands. We should make sure that he be prosecuted and jailed.

The US government and the operatives who orchestrated the offensive should likewise be held responsible. The offensive was a clear violation of our sovereignty and laws. Immediately, all US operations in the country should be stopped, most especially the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement which allows US bases to be set up and more US troops stationed in the country.


We demand full disclosure of the role and extent of the United States agents in Mamasapano tragedy. US representatives, too, should be summoned by Congress.

We cannot allow more bloody offensives and killings to happen, and more lives to be sacrificed on the altar of the United States’ terror war.
