Kill the enemy. The murder of Pablito Glean, the chief close-in security of Mayor Jejomar “Jojo” Binay at a Shell station at the Fort in broad daylight is consistent with the pattern of extra- judicial killings of “enemies of the state” that has been the rule the last two years. Sources say “Task Force Spider” has been formed against political opponents of GMA.
Concurrently, security personnel assigned to opposition leaders former President Corazon Aquino, House Minority Leader Francis Escudero and Senior Deputy Minority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano have been recalled. After pulling out the Marines at the Senate, the Philippine National Police now wants to pull out its contingent from the Senate.
One cannot help but suspect that this is part of a plan to leave opposition leaders unprotected and become easier targets.
