Ninoy Aquino

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."
---Ninoy Aquino

I was 5 years old when I saw the news footage on TV.

Dad was furious.

Can I tell you a secret on YM?

Clearly the killing was ordered by Marcos, just as the Plaza Miranda bombing was ordered by Marcos and an untold number of atrocities.

I'd love to get to the bottom of this; the thing is, how quickly can I learn Tagalog to do the research? Surely the truth is out there, lurking...

@ michael
twas nice to hear from a non-filipino! yeah, it was really obvious. too bad, no one had the audacity to put the blame in them. and oh, tagalog is an easy language to learn. i have american friends who managed to learn at least a "command" of the language in 3 months!
you can still do your research entirely in english. english language spoeakers are not hard to find in manila.


what was that? i txted you already! :)

...and i also heard on the news (TV patrol) while interviewing the convicted murderers of ninoy, just recently during the burial of cory, that it was a relative who is behind this!

Clearly the one who made this blog and accusation does not know how to investigate a crime.

1st if I were one of the Marcoses, why would I order the killing of a known enemy in public in could blood knowing that all will put the blame on me.

2nd Ninoy Aquino was sentenced during that time to be executed through firing squad by the Marcos regime. Why would they bother to kill him on the tarmac when they can simply wait for his execution day thereby lessening the reaction of the public. Likewise executing Ninoy through "legal" means meant that the Marcoses will get rid of their rival under the protection of legalities.

Note that until now there are no evidences pointing to the Marcoses as the masterminds despite 2 Aquinos becoming presidents.

I am no Marcos loyalist but before you make accusations, make sure to get your facts straight lest you sound stupidly opinionated in your blog in the eyes of the public.
