Apology

I am very sorry that my last article (In Confidence) has caused some confusion and misunderstanding.  I hasten to stress that I had no intention of criticising Prof GL Peiris whom I admire and respect. You may recall that he, in his capacity as Minister of External Affairs, summoned Patricia Butenis, US Ambassador in Colombo, regarding leaked cables. http://www.lankamagazine.com/2010/12/21/g-l-summons-butenis

 My article, written in a light-hearted vein, was supposed to be a (leaked) cable sent by her to Hillary Clinton – US Secretary of State – following her meeting with Prof Peiris. I should have explained the context.
