Breaking: PDEA Director dismantles Oplan Tokhang and Oplan Double Barrel
Happening now: Interview of PDEA Director Aaron Aquino by News to Go anchors Kara David and Howie Severino:
PDEA Director Aaron Aquino in answer to a query said he was dismantling Operation Tokhang and Operation Double Barrel as all operations and activities in pursuing illegal drug suspects have been transferred to the PDEA.
No details were released by the PDEA Director on how they planned to conduct the anti-drug operations except to say that they had 2,000 personnel and would be wearing green PDEA shirts as their uniform.
This came when, less than 72 hours after the release of the SWS survey on an 18% steep fall in the President’s satisfaction rating, the President immediately transferred supervision and control over the war against poor drug users, este, er, the war against illegal drugs, to the PDEA.
(might we suggest a more rational operation to the PDEA: go for the big fish — they’re swimming in the ports of entry, bays and harbors, and wading in plush villages… But what about those responsible for the massive killings?)
