Abstract:

Little is known about the makeup of and connections between the various armed groups—state and non-state—of the Sulu archipelago in the southwestern Philippines. The article sheds light on these issues through the study of a notorious “lost command” on Basilan island in the 1990s. Drawing on primary and secondary sources, the article focuses on two kidnapping operations of the gang as a case study to infer its composition and relations with the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) and the Abu Sayyaf. The article concludes with an analysis of the gang as an exemplum of the traditional fundamental political unit found in the zone.
