A serious-looking President Duterte swore before the public and TV cameras that he will campaign for Mar Roxas senate return with one condition – answer some unanswered questions in his head regarding the SAF 44 mission.
In News5 video posted recently on its Facebook page, President Duterte while speaking during the Hugpong Pagbabago campaign rally yesterday April 16, 2019 in Tuguegarao, Cagayan, have called out senate applicant Mar Roxas regarding the Mamasapano tragedy that resulted in the deaths of the so-called SAF 44.
Basically, President Duterte have two questions for Mar Roxas regarding the Mamasapano operation.
First, why was no reinforcements were sent to save the SAF 44 in Mamasapano when the firefight started at 8 AM that lasted almost the entire day and military assets like helicopters were within striking distance?
PRRD lamented Pnoy and Roxas were talking in the backstage from morning until the evening and yet they could not decide to send help to the SAF 44.
Second, why the SAF, trained in urban warfare, was tapped to arrest Marwan when an ARMY regiment based in Maguindanao, whose familiarity with the terrain is invaluable in operation like what the SAF 44 did?
According to PRRD, he was called to come to Zamboanga City by PNoy when SAF 44 was fighting for dear lives.
Mayor Lobregat was also present, according to PPRD, in the military war room set up in Zamboanga for the SAF operation versus Marwan.
In the same speech, PRRD swore he is talking about this for the first time, when ex-President Aquino asked directed a hypothetical question to a General who was assigned in the vicinity of the area where SAF 44 lost their lives, “Kung ikaw General, kung ikaw ang nandoon. ano ang gagawin mo?”
Stunned by ex-President Noy’s question, PRRD said he stood up immediately and told PNoy he was leaving because he did not want to miss his flight.
According to PRRD, PNoy stopped him from leaving, saying there was no flight scheduled to fly out of Zamboanga at that time. PNoy told PRRD he had a small plane at his disposal.
PRRD explained that he stood up in reaction to a very stupid question when all the SAF 44 were already dead?
PRRD narrated he asked the ISAF general who sat next to him what they were trying to hide?
PRRD ended the speech telling the audience he will strongly urge the audience to write Roxas’ name first on the ballot when all the nagging questions in his head are answered by Roxas.
Mar Roxas was the DILG Secretary of ex-President Noynoy Aquino at the time of the Mamasapano incident.
