What happened to the 44 members of the elite Philippine National Police Special Action Force (PNP-SAF) is tragic. I grieve with their families: the father, mother, daughter/son, wife.
Their intent was to capture a terrorist sowing great fear to the citizenry of Mindanao, threat of which is exponential because he is/was teaching other or would be terrorists on how to make a strong bomb.
But was there a conspiracy/treachery in the operation? Or was there a lapse in coordination with the people who were supposed to be in the know? Only God knows, literally!
