P-Noy vows to capture Usman, urges MILF cooperation

MANILA, Feb. 7 — Addressing the nation for the second time since the tragic Mamasapano incident, President Benigno S. Aquino on Friday vowed to capture terrorist Abdul Basit Usman who escaped from the law enforcement operation conducted by the PNP Special Action Force last January 25.

He called on the Moro Islamic Liberation Front leadership to help capture Usman.

”If he remains within your territory, or is protected by one of your members, we expect you to surrender him to the authorities. If not, we expect you to do everything you can to help capture him. And if even this is not possible, do not interfere with our pursuit of Usman,” Aquino said.

Aquino also expects that the MILF will help the government in seeking justice for the 44 Philippine National Police (PNP) Special Action Force (SAF) men who were killed in the operation to arrest Marwan and Usman.

The President reiterated the government’s commitment to give justice for the fallen SAF commandos.

”To all those working with us towards peace: We are fully committed to continuing the fight. And I say to those opposed to our objective, especially those who resort to violence: Mark my words, you will feel the sharpened and strengthened might of a unified Filipino nation,” he said.

    The accompanying video of the President’s address has no sound. One needs to learn how to read the lips, though.

    Killing “Marwan” cost the lives of Fallen44 and countless others. for Usman, how many more?
