The alleged Red October ouster plot floated by the military partially came true.

It was Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque, not President Duterte, who was removed from his post this month following a string of blunders, according to former Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda.

“Actually, there was a Red October. Only, the one who was Red Octobered was Harry, ousted this October, red faced from all the wrong info he gave to media,” Lacierda tweeted.

Roque, who has been dilly-dallying about his senatorial plans, has lost his government job after President Duterte asked his trusted legal counsel Salvador Panelo to take his place. The former Kabayan lawmaker was reportedly miffed after he was kept in the dark about the President’s recent medical checkup.
