President Benigno Aquino calls out Special Action Force or SAF commander Getulio Napeñas for the botched operation that cost the lives of 44 of his men. He said that Napeñas, a SAF commander should have had situational awareness and should have fully known the dangers of the operation.
He adds accepting the resignation of his friend, suspended PNP chief Alan Purisima was a painful decision.
General Purisima says, no one pressured him to resign. He also adds he did not give the orders during the Mamasapano mission and only provided the intelligence. Purisima, also passes the blame to Napeñas, saying it was the role of the ground commander to give orders.
The president also tells the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) to surrender terrorist Abdul Basit Usman. The president also added during his speech last Friday, for MILF if this is not possible, the group should not stand in the way of his arrest.
