Do you like this story?
I was not yet even born when Ninoy Aquino was shot dead out of the tarmac of the Manila International Airport 25 years ago. Though that moment ended a man's life, never did that incident halted the cause of throwing away an autocrat's rule mired with scandals, corruption, and crises.
It has been 25 years yet the case is still unsolved. If Ninoy only turned and faced his back, he would have seen who had the gun. It is one thing to see who did the actual shooting, but who was the brains behind it?
Cases have been opened but none of them have even gone close to solving the quarter-century mystery. Why hasn't anyone have got the balls to point fingers? Or the question that I have here is, do we still need to do finger-pointing to reveal who the real culprits were?
Whenever we get to see videos and tv specials about the martyrdom of Ninoy, don't we all seem to point fingers on a handful of people as the brains behind this assassination?
He knows who's behind all of this. Even his wife Cory knows who's behind the tragedy. The question is, where are the evidences and witnesses that would support her belief? We may all have failed for the past 25 years to determine who was really behind all of this. But gut feel and instincts tell us otherwise. It is true that rank and file soldiers have been put into prison for what they have done. But aren't soldiers subject to the orders of their commanders? It is not absolutely at random that these soldiers did the inevitable. It must come from the top echelons and from the head of state himself.
With that, I accuse three people to be the brains behind the assassination of Ninoy Aquino. General Fabian Ver, Imelda Marcos, and Ferdinand Marcos are the three foremost brains behind this all. The two are dead, but Imelda is still alive. The secret is still safe with her.
We all know it is Marcos. And I know all of you agree with me.
"But i knew that somehow, i will regain my freedom. maybe not in this world, but elsewhere. and i knew, that sometime,
somewhere mister marcos and i will meet. and in that meeting, i will have my satisfaction."
