Read The Full Mamasapano Inquiry Report: Pres. Aquino, Gen. Purisima & Napeñas Broke Chain of Command

PNP Board of Inquiry investigating the bloody Mamasapano clash concluded that the President Benigno S. Aquino III, former PNP Chief Alan Purisima and former Special Action Force (SAF) Chief Getulio Napeñas broke chain of command which made the operation to arrest a notorious Malaysian terrorist  defective at the very start according to a report by the Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI).

In January 25, the Philippine government launched a secret operation to arrest or neutralize Malaysian bomb maker Zulkifli bin Hir aka Marwan who was hiding in Mamasapano, Maguindanao. Code named OPlan Exodus: operation resulted in the death of the Marwan (as confirmed by the US FBI) but at the cost of 44 SAF commando lives plus 18 Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) fighters and 4 civilians.

The incident has roused public anger against the administration of President Aquino and seriously jeopardizing the future of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), the fruit of years of negotiations with the MILF, now pending in Congress.

According to the PDI, the BOI report also cited the following factors that led to the disaster in Mamasapano, Maguindanao:

Planning Defects

* Poor analysis of the area of operation;
* Unrealistic assumptions
*Poor intelligence estimate;
* Absence of abort criteria;
* Lack of flexibility in its CONOPS;
* Inappropriate application of TOT;
* Absence of prior coordination with the AFP and AHJAG.

Operational Defects

* Mismanaged movement plan from staging area to Vehicle-Drop-Off Point;
* Failure to occupy the designated way points;
* Ineffective communication system among the operating troops;
* Unfamiliarity with the terrain in the area of operation;
* Non-adherence to operational/tactical Standard Operating Procedures;
* Lack of situational awareness among commanders and
* Breakdown in the command and control
