The survival of Don Abrasado, the aide-de-camp of Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo, in the crash of the plane they were in raises a lot of questions.
Reports said according to Abrazado, one of the plane’s wings broke when they were about 100 feet from the ground. That means there were still a few seconds, if not a minute or so, for him and Robredo to try and jump out of the plane.
Did he exert any effort to save Robredo? If yes, what? If no, why not? As aide-de-camp, he was either right beside the secretary or directly behind him.
Did he try to drag Robredo, or push him, out of the plane?
What prevented Robredo from jumping off the plane after him, assuming that Abrazado had indeed escaped before it crashed? What was Robredo’s condition -- immobilized, pinned ,trapped?
How exactly did Abrazado get off the plane? Some reports say he was thrown out as the aircraft plowed into the water. Others say he was near the door so he was able to escape.
Did the plane have life-vests? If yes, did Abrazado and Robredo manage to wear any before the plane plunged into the water?
There were also reports that according to Abrazado, the plane was split in half when it crashed at around 4:30 p.m.
How far was he from the plane? Did he see Robredo? Did he make any effort to follow the plane under the water? If he will say that his injured arm prevented him from moving, how did it get fractured?
Was the plane checked and certified as safe before it was used by the secretary? If yes, by whom? If it wasn’t checked, who allowed it to fly? Who persuaded Robredo to use it just the same?
Until questions like these are answered no one should prejudge what had actually happened, especially if there’s no physical evidence. Whoever uses this tragedy for political propaganda must be crucified.
I am with the people in praying fr the survival of Robredo and the other missing passengers of the plane.

GANITO KASAMA ANG GOBYERNO NI PNOY!
Saan ba galing ang sobrang galit ni Pnoy kay GMA? Hanggang ngayon, hindi ko maintindihan. Dapat nga mas magalit pa siya kay Enrile at Honasan dahil muntik na siyang mamatay noong 1989 nang nag kudeta ang grupo ni Honasan. Si GMA, wala namang ginawa sa kanila na karahasan o pangaapi. Kung pomabor man si GMA sa land distribution ng HL, yun ay naayon sa batas at para na rin sa kapakanan ng mga farmers

How can you deal with an idiot like Abnoy? You’re not dealing with reason and rational thinking. You’re dealing with hate, vendetta, obsession, tantrums, and deep immaturity.

Sige lang, Abnoy! Ituloy mo lang yang kagaguhan mo! Pero once may mangyaring di maganda kay GMA, humanda ka, hayup kah!
This is inhuman, indeed. But where was GMA when millions upon millions of Filipinos suffered during her time? Did she even care at all about the plight of the masses? I do not agree with the Aquino government's stance on the matter but on the other hand, why should the people care either?
Ubod talaga sa kademonyohan yang Penoy na yan.
siya ng kidlat anumang oras,ano mang araw simula ngayon.. Sana
Marami ring ganyang kaso sa panahon ni GMA, pero hindi siya masama. In fairness kay GMA, pero hindi in fairness sa ibang tao? Partisan politics and fanaticism do not go well with logic.

I'm not surprised at what Panot and his gang are doing. They as vindictive as they come and nothing good will ever come out of it.

In war and in peace, whether ally or foe, every human being or even every beastly-human being has his/her inalienable rights.. Let not narrow-mindedness, prejudice or bigotry dominate. In our basic Christian doctrine, there is no compromise when it comes to taking the high road.

Hindi galit iyan kundi yabang.
Magtigil mga ang mga dilaw na yan. Bakit si Ninoy pinayagan ni Marcos pagamot sa ibang bansa. Gusto lang nila mamatay si GMA kaya nila yan ginagawa.
GO AHEAD, MAKE A MARTYR OUT OF GMA!
I don't want to talk about Marcos, for everything now seems hazy and it's too long ago. What's important is NOW! If Penoy wants PGMA to be a hero, he is digging his own grave. NOW is the time for us Filipinos to do something about it. Do something and stand and unite in whatever is necessary.
SUSPEND CARABUENA’S LICENSE, INDEFINITELY!
