Extrajudicial Killings possibly supported by CIA covert ops 'endorsed' by Cory Aquino when she was president


Recall a 27th March 1987 Newsweek article, that reports a "critical Washington source" revealing how then Philippine President Cory Aquino authorised the United States' Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to "launch undercover political activities" against communist insurgents.

According to the same report, there were various local vigilante groups already taking matters into their own hands against these insurgents and that the Aquino government at the time seemed "to endorse the vigilantes".
