Sen. Loren Legarda, the chairman of the Senate’s committee on foreign relations, said the other day that she welcomed a probe into the country’s handling of its territorial dispute with China in the South China Sea. That would be great, not only so we would learn invaluable lessons on how to handle the territorial dispute. But just as important, such an investigation will finally inform the nation—and it will be written in our history books—how President Aquino, his foreign secretary Albert del Rosario, and Sen. Antonio Trillanes lost Panatag Shoal (Scarborough) to the Chinese in 2012 because of their bungling.
