Day three of the senate hearing on Oplan Exodus turned out to be more "upbeat" than usual, all thanks to Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago and the can of whoop-ass she served on former SAF Commander Getulio Napeñas, MILF Chief Negotiator Mohagher Iqbal, and former PNP Chief Alan Purisima earlier today.

Purisima, especially, was not able to rely on Purisimese 101 this time around while the others were just, well, spanked. Below's a recap of the verbal smackdown that transpired!
