The Philippine Star reported today what progressive and leftist groups have been saying all along — that the CIA, the FBI and other foreign spies have been operating in Mindanao for quite some time.
“Mindanao is crawling with CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and even Australian federal agents,” a source told the paper.
The report followed allegations this week that American soldiers have not only been advising their Filipino counterparts in Mindanao but actually joining in the fighting as well. If true, the allegation, which the Pentagon denies, violates the agreements that government the presence in the country of foreign troops. It violates as well the Philippine Constitution.
