“Hello Garci” whistle blower asked: “Who order the bombings before?”
The leftwing fisherfolk alliance Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya) on Thursday urged controversial Hello Garci whistle blower Vidal Doble to identify government and military officials who ordered them to stage previous bombing incidents in the country.
“In the name of national interest, Mr. Vidal Doble is hereby asked by the 90 million Filipinos to identify the government and military officials who ordered them to perform the previous bombings at the time he was still in the military service,” Pamalakaya national chair Fernando Hicap said in a press statement.
The Pamalakaya leader said Doble should go all-out in his expose and ready himself once the Senate or the House of Representatives decides to conduct an inquiry on the past bombings where he and his colleagues were involved. “The truth will set him free and he is obliged to tell the truth and nothing but the truth. We hope the lawmakers in both chambers of Congress will put premium to Doble’s bombshell and cross party lines in the name of public interest,” said Hicap.
The Hello Garci whistleblower on Wednesday theorized the recent bombings including the incident in the Office of the Ombudsman this week were the handiwork of state security forces, recalling his ordeal while working with the Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (Isafp), where he and other military intelligence officers did the bombings themselves to create a political scenario that will justify the moves of Malacañang and the AFP.
“Who ordered Mr. Doble to perform the bombing incidents in the previous years of the Arroyo administration? Is it President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo herself? Is it the National Security Adviser in the person of Secretary Norberto Gonzalez? Is it the Defense Secretary or is it the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. Mr. Doble has to identify or name names and go all-out,” added Hicap.
Doble said he was incline to believe that “Oplan August Moon”, an alleged administration backed coup plot that sees the installation of administration friendly military and police officials to sensitive government posts to allow Charter Change and extension of President Arroyo’s stay in power.
The Hello Garci whistle blower in 2005 said the Arroyo administration wants to control the entire AFP in case the Constituent Assembly pushes ahead. Pamalakaya said “Oplan August Moon” cannot be discounted as a political fiction, saying Arroyo’s last option to remain in power is declare Martial Law and justify its imposition by creating all out trouble and by terrorizing the Filipino public. #
