Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. just could not forgive the Aquino administration over the bloody Mamasapano clash.
The ex-politiko from Ilocos explained this was because he knew what the 44 slain troopers of the Philippine National Police Special Action Force (SAF)– whom he called as “fellow warriors” – went through.
Marcos recounted he had joined the military when he was 18 years old as part of his national service.
“What made it (death of SAF 44) all the more painful was the fact that these were supremely, highly trained operators who had been put into this very dangerous mission without the propeor coordination with the other elements of the military,” said Marcos.
“And that for me is them most egregious mistake that we could have made,” he added.
