“It was mission accomplished,” said the father of one of the 44 members of the police Special Action Force (SAF) who were killed in an encounter with Moro rebels on Jan. 25 in Maguindanao province.

Former Army MSgt. Perlito Agabon said the death of his son PO2 Chump Agabon and of the others had become more meaningful in the wake of reports that top Jemaah Islamiyah terrorist Zulkifli bin Hir, alias “Marwan,” had been confirmed dead by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The father’s statement is in sharp contrast to the sentiments of critics of President Aquino who are calling for his resignation for what they call was a botched police operation to arrest two international terrorists in Mamasapano town.
