This is so reminiscent of how Fujimori orchestrated prison 'breakouts' where
the Shining Path people who were then slaughtered down like cattle. It is
also similar to how the US had yet another client group of theirs,
asphixiate hundreds of the US captured POWs in Afghanistan for Bush.
Though the press is being extremely compliant about reporting this
'breakout' in the Philippines, it has all the same smell to it. Just how
likely is the official line that the wife of one of these high profile
prisoners snuck a gun into the prison for her husband? After all, the US
sent several thousand troops into the country to coordinate military
actions against those very same, evil 'Islamic terrorists'.
It brings back to mind the Old South days, when White racist sheriffs always
supposedly had to kill some Black prisoner for trying to escape, and usually
before trial. Now, the US likes to use this method in the Third World to
summarily execute POWs that they have captured. Pretty sick stuff. As
sick as what's going down in Fallujah.
Rebels Flee Philippine Prison; Many Captured or Killed

ANILA, April 12 Fifty-three prison inmates in the southern Philippines,
including members of the Islamic rebel group Abu Sayyaf, escaped over the
weekend, but many have been captured or killed, officials said today.
President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo ordered the military and the police today
to intensify the manhunt operations on the island province of Basilan, about
550 miles south of Manila, where the prison is located and Abu Sayyaf is
based. "If the massive manhunt requires cordoning off the whole Basilan
province to prevent the escapees from fleeing to other provinces, so be it,"
the president said in a statement.
The inmates escaped on Saturday using a smuggled gun to subdue the guards,
officials said. Of the 53 who escaped, 23 were members of Abu Sayyaf, said
Lieut. Col. Daniel Lucero, a military spokesman. He said 25 had been
recaptured and 9 had been killed.
The jailbreak has embarrassed the Arroyo administration, which has made
progress during the past few weeks in its campaign against Abu Sayyaf, which
Washington and Manila have linked to Al Qaeda.
Last week the military killed Hamsiraji Sali, one of the key leaders of Abu
Sayyaf wanted by the United States in connection with the kidnapping of four
Americans several years ago.
Late last month, the authorities arrested six people they said were members
of Abu Sayyaf and were involved in a "Madrid-level" plot to blow up shopping
malls and railway systems in Manila.
The United States warned the Philippine government in a meeting on March 22
that it was not doing enough in its fight against local terrorists. Ms.
Arroyo ordered the recent crackdown immediately after that meeting, relying
mainly on intelligence provided by the United States.
Since early 2002, the Americans and Philippines have been conducting
military training exercises intended to help train the Philippine military
in eliminating Abu Sayyaf. Washington sent hundreds of American troops to
the southern Philippines for these exercises.
As a result of the training, the military operations on Basilan intensified,
driving many Abu Sayyaf members off the island, although officials said a
few hundred are still there. Many of Abu Sayyaf members who escaped from
jail on Saturday had been captured during these American-supported
