On the evening of January 24, 2015, Special Action Force officers left for Mamasapano on a mission to neutralize high value targets, unaware that they were heading into a massacre. Oplan Exodus details the harrowing encounter between the SAF men and the MILF denizens of Mamasapano. It exposes the state of our national security, the flaws and limitations of the operational plan that led to the death of forty-four skilled and selfless officers, and the chaos and confusion that followed as the wives and families sought justice and accountability for their men. Margarita R. Cojuangco, “mom” to the SAF officers after serving as president at the Philippine Public Safety College where the men graduated, draws from reports, investigations, and personal interviews with eyewitnesses and survivors to honor the great sacrifice of the SAF 44.
