US Provided map for Mamasapano operation according to Napenas

 Dismissed Special Action Force (SAF) chief Getulio Napenas Jr. said  Tuesday  that the map he used was given by US counterparts

as part of planning and execution of Oplan: Exodus. The operation is  to neutralize terror suspect Marwan in Mamasapano, Maguindanao last January 25.

 
Revealing before the House joint committee probe, Napenas countered the claim of General Gener Del Rosario, commander of the Army’s 1st Mechanized Brigade, that SAF officials used a Google map for the  location of the troops in  the January 25 mission.
 
He revealed to the  lawmakers a copy of the map, covered in plastic.
 
"Hindi po Google map ito. Military [map]. Meron din siyang grid references. Enhanced na mapa po ito, up to the nearest one meter," he said.
 
"Kinuha po natin sa US counterparts."
 
Napenas added that  the map was taken two weeks before the operation and that Google Maps usually have old information.
