We can see the worry in the face of Princess Jacel as she updates her father, her emotional appeal to end the attack against her father’s men, and her anger at Pres. Aquino. In the press conference, she wore the Muslim woman’s veil or tirong in her Tausug language, emotional in her challenge against Aquino.

Partner na natin ang Malaysia sa pag uusap sa MILF. Tumulong ng isang dekada hangang umabot tayo sa pag pirma ng Framework Agreement. Tayo po ay maayos na lahi. Papasalamatan ba natin sila ng kaguluhan? Mali naman natin iyon.” — President Benigno Aquino III
