MANILA "Look who's talking".
This was the reaction of Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana after Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founding chair Jose Maria "Joma" Sison blamed anew the military for the murder of nine workers in a sugar farm in Sagay City, Negros Occidental.
"Yeah right! Coming from the mastermind of the Plaza Miranda bombing, the killing of hundreds of New People's Army (NPA) cadres suspected of being agents of the government, as well as assassination/killings of innocent civilians in the past 50 years?" the DND chief said in a statement sent to reporters Thursday.
Lorenzana also warned Sison to refrain from pointing fingers, noting that the CPP founder's "other fingers are pointing back at you".
"You have been unmasked as the man behind these atrocities by no less than your former comrades. Your psywar no longer works. Nobody, even your so-called fighters, believes you anymore," the DND chief added.
The defense chief also said Sison is doomed to be consigned to the dustbin of history as a pathetic revolutionary failure, who has achieved nothing significant and instead brought bloodshed and suffering to the Filipino people. (PNA)
