Q: Sir John, PNoy recently blamed SAF General Napenas for "lying" to him in reporting information about the Mamasapano operation. What can you say about this? Is he excused? What was his mistake? What is your recommendation?

A: It is an admission that: (1) he [PNoy] has direct hands-on involvement as the highest authority in managing the decisions on the operation, (2) he [PNoy] lacks the necessary inquisitiveness and fell short of competency in validating information reported directly by his operations officer, (3) he [PNoy] does not take responsibility over failure of operations despite being a direct management participant of it. Admission of INCOMPETENCE will not excuse him [PNoy] of command responsibility.

His mistake was he gave a political decision over a tactical situation. He had in his hands the authority, power, resources and sufficient time to save the lives of the SAF who are in life-and-death situation, but he choose to sacrifice their lives for his personal ambition to get a nomination for Nobel Peace Prize that Teresita Deles lured him on.

The president has multiple functions and he has to make the best decision in any given circumstance. As president, he is the highest political decision-maker as well as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces. In this case at hand, he demonstrated incompetence and lack of responsibility as commander-in-chief of the armed forces and this puts ALL OF OUR LIVES at imminent risk. The Philippine Society, as a whole, should find a way to make him resign. This is a life-and-death situation. Buhay natin at tayo lahat ang at-risk dito habang patuloy yan na naka-upo as commander-in-chief of the armed forces.

Tingnan nyo rin yung aspect ng PSYCHOLOGICAL INCONSISTENCY ni PNoy. Given two similar situation, did the person responded consistently? In Zamboanga Siege of Sept 2013 (which the MNLF denies participation) PNoy was provoking the MNLF peace process by ordering three battalions of his armed forces to create havoc for almost one month which destroyed the homes of some 100,000 indigenous peoples minority Badjaos in Mariki and Rio Hondo, in response to an alleged MNLF shooting of one navy man. In this Mamasapano incident of January 2015, his 44 peacekeepers were slaughtered by the MILF yet he is withholding military response using the peace process as an excuse. So, given two situations, he behaved differently -- obviously meron siyang psychological inconsistency.

Nevertheless, whether he will resign or not, he has to be charged of TREASON, baka kasi sumusunod lang siya sa utos ng Malaysia. He may use insanity as a legal defense and we will be lenient. We will consider the facts of his psychological inconsistencies. We will gladly accept insanity as a plea bargain because it's long been established already with complete medical record. (John R.
