The scene at the posh suburban home of a rich, anti-government businessman Wednesday night was an inside glimpse of a coup gone bad. Renegade Brig. Gen. Edgardo Abenina, self-styled political leader of the sixth unsuccessful coup attempt against Philippine President Corazon Aquino, was snacking on pickled eggs and Blue Nun wine and sending perhaps his final taunt to his former classmate--the man who was hunting him. "Surrender?"

President Corazon Aquino said Wednesday that she had been warned of last Friday's attempt to overthrow her, but she conceded that palace security had been depleted because she was scheduled to leave the capital for a regional tour that day.
