Recall how then President BS Aquino spoke disrespectfully to the families of the slain SAF officers...


Former President Benigno Simeon "BS" Aquino III wasn't exactly known to be a particularly empathetic guy. Nonetheless, the manner with which he "reached out" to the families of Special Action Force officers massacred by Islamic terrorists during a botched mission he directly oversaw was particularly insensitive as we recall...

Asked what steps his government was taking to seek justice for the atrocity, Aquino lashed out...

"Ano gusto nyo gawin ko, kunin natin ang fingerprint ng mga kalaban? Aba madami iyun, para malaman natin sino pumatay sa mga kamag-anak nyo."

And, as expected, the customary segue into the "heroism" of his parents...

The President also reportedly said he and the SAF families were "equal" because his father was also killed. "Namatay rin ang tatay ko, alam ko pakiramdam niyo kaya patas na rin tayo ngayon."

That's BS Aquino, alright. A real class act. Like his sister.
