A shocking document from Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been declassified and it shows that there were some news reports that former President Cory Aquino requested assistance from the United States of America to crush the rebels led by Colonel Gregorio Honasan and other soldiers loyal to former dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
The CIA documents were published in several foreign news websites like CNN and BBC news and the document published in Mindavote was discovered by Carlos Munda.
The document disclosed by Munda is only one of the 13 million pages of documents published by the CIA after a non-profit freedom of information group, MuckRock, sued the CIA to force it to upload the collection.
According to the document, Cory Aquino asked for U.S assistance to crush the rebels who wanted to topple her government by using F-4 Phantom Jets.
Fortunately, American officials refused to bomb and strafe because of political risks of killings Filipinos. The F-4s flew over Metro Manila in a show of force that sent a clear message to rebel soldiers of what was in store for them if they persisted with their Cory ouster moves.
The documents also showed that 12 opposition congressmen condemned the action of United States of America and the Aquino government for asking military assistance from a foreign power.
Former President Corazon Aquino faced six failed plots to overthrow her government.
The most serious coup attempt happened during December 1989 when members of Reform the Armed Forces Movement (RAM) led by former Colonel and now Senator Gregorio Honasan almost captured the presidential palace.
But it was completely defeated by the Philippine Government on December 9, 1989 with the help of U.S.
This is what the document said.
