Gift-giving of guns for the Ampatuans?

Posted on

Gifts meant only for cowards.

We’re in the thick of the Holiday Season. So let’s talk about gift-giving! And with all the evidence piling up against them, it’s like “deck the halls with bags of bullets” for the Ampatuan caboodle.

Some seized firearms of Ampatuans were gifts from politicians

Some of the high-powered firearms that the influential Ampatuan clan issued to its private armies were “gifts” from two politicians, acting Defense Secretary Norberto Gonzales disclosed Monday.

According to Gonzales, the names of the two government officials cropped up during the investigation into the Nov. 23 massacre of 57 people in a town named after the Ampatuans.

“We do have names and some are kind of heartbreaking,” he said in a news briefing in Camp Aguinaldo.

Gonzales said the clan’s patriarch, Andal Ampatuan Sr., would often ask for firearms in exchange for the favors that he and his family provided to other politicians.

If this find is true, then wow — it’s surprising to know that even devils know how to exchange gifts!
