August Moon is On! Bangit appointed New AFP Chief of Staff

DESPITE PUBLIC OUTRAGE AND DISGUSTS, MRS. GLORIA MACAPAGAL-ARROYO WILL LEAD THE CEREMONIES FOR THE TURN-OVER OF DUTIES OF ARMED FORCES OF THE PHILIPPINES CHIEF OF STAFF GENERAL VICTOR IBRADO TO THE NEWLY APPOINTED CHIEF OF STAFF LT. GENERAL DELFIN BANGIT.

Bangit, member of Philippine Military Academy (PMA) class 1978, is a former Presidential Security Group head of Mrs. Gloria Arroyo.

LIKE WHAT THIS BLOG WROTE A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, MRS. ARROYO AND HER HAWKS PLAN TO INSTALL LT. GENERAL DELFIN BANGIT AS THE AFP CHIEF OF STAFF AHEAD OF THE MAY 10, 2010 ELECTIONS.

THIS PLAN, CODENAMED "AUGUST MOON" STARTED LATE LAST YEAR WITH THE APPOINTMENT OF MEMBERS OF PMA CLASS 1978 TO SENSITIVE AFP AND PNP POSTS. THE GOVERNMENT DENIED THAT THEY EVER HAD SUCH A PLAN BUT THIS WAS REVEALED TO THIS WRITER BY SOME OF THE PEOPLE WHOM DEFENSE SECRETARY NORBERTO GONZALES MET A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO.

IF YOU REMEMBER, GENERAL BANGIT WAS INVOLVED IN THE HELLO GARCI SCANDAL.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN PHILIPPINE HISTORY THAT A GOVERNMENT APPOINTED THOSE WITH GRAFT CASES IN VERY SENSITIVE POSTS.

DOTC SECRETARY AND ZTE-NBN DEAL CONTRACT PROPONENT LEANDRO MENDOZA WAS APPOINTED EXECUTIVE SECRETARY.

AND NOW, ONE OF THOSE WHO ORCHESTRATED THE HELLO GARCI SCANDAL IS NOW THE HEAD OF THE COUNTRY'S ARMED FORCES OF THE PHILIPPINES.

IS THIS THE WAY WE REWARD THOSE WHO COMMIT GRAFT AND CORRUPTION?

SHAME ON US. SHAME ON THEM.
