The New York hedge fund billionaire Rajaratnam indicted recently and faces prison for the rest of his life  for orchestrating an illegal $20 million insider trading scheme has been exposed By the American Broadcasting Corporation (ABC News) as a major contributor to former Senator and now Secretary of State  Hillary Clinton’s unsuccesful past presidential re-election campaign as well as other programs sponsored by her. He is also accused of being the single largest known U.S. contributor to a charity linked to the Tamil Tiger terror group in Sri Lanka, according to records obtained by ABC News.com. Curiously Senator Clinton is said to have  officially refuted them as well as denying acceptance although unconfirmed but plausible based on the obvious dire ramifications it could effected on her political career and credibility albeit with a few grey areas which could suggest that she may have inadvertently acccepted some of the Rajaratnam contributions as being legit where at some stage she may have relented, realising the serious implications in the aftermath.

The News report outlines details about Rajaratnam’s culpability of operating an elaborate insider trading scheme through his Galleon Group hedge fund, which made him one of the wealthiest men in America with an estimated net worth of $1.3 billion.The case against Rajaratnam and the five others indicted alleges that they netted over $25 million in profits and marked the first time, a court authorized wire taps were used in a hedge fund case which eventually exposed the scam.

While Mr. Rajaratnam of Sri Lankan origin is also charged with funding more than $3.5 million to the Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO), whose assets were frozen by the U.S. Treasury Department in Nov. 2007 because of  alleged ties to the Tamil Tigers according to documents filed with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS),  Rajaratnam’s contributions to the TRO were reportedly made in 2005 and 2006 through a separate charity, which he founded in the wake of the tsunami which hit Sri Lanka in Dec. 2004 but appears to have been a front which was chanelling funds for the ongoing terrorist campaign of the Tamil Tigers at the time.

In support of this the US Treasury Department has indeed described the TRO charity as “a front” for Tamil Tigers fundraising and procurement in the United States which conclusions appears to have been arrived at through careful investigation.”TheTRO passed off its operation as charitable, when in fact it was raising money for designated terrorist group responsible for heinous acts of terrorism”  according to Mr.  Adam Szubin, director of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control at the time.

The Tamil Tigers waged a bloody insurgency against the Government of Sri Lanka in which both sides were accused of civilian attrocities by so called high profile accusers where one needs to differentiate the application of the term attrocities and its greater implications to the terrorists as opposed to a Sovereign Nation in defence of territorial integrity and the protection of her citizens from terrorists.

Under the  Bill Clinton administration, the State Department designated the Tamil Tigers as a terrorist organization in 1997 and ironically his wife who ran for President unsuccesfully yet picked for the position of Secretary of State by President Obama as well as being a senator in the State of New York seems to have been favoured by the Tamil Tiger fronting TRO as a recipient of what many define as blood money.
Hopefully and in her best interests, in the minds of many analysts she has had nothing to do with same as it could open up a scenario which could blow the roof off her personal as well as official credibilities although there seems to be bits and pieces of tell tale evidence that all does not seem to be kosher about whether or not she was aware of what the implications would be as the report suggests and that she seems to have shown indifference towards the relativities as well as somewhat duplicitous rhetoric on her part which could portray her in very poor light if all the related facts were proven in a court of law incorporating iresponsibility on her part.
The Sri Lankan Government has long maintained that contributions funneled through U.S. and Canadian-based charities prolonged the  terror group’s bloody campaign and were the biggest sources of their income which wreaked havoc in Sri Lanka for decades and took a heavy toll of innocent lives and property until the Tamil Tigers were eliminated by Government Forces in May, effectively putting an end to the mendacious insurgency and restored the Nation to a great degree of normalcy.
Rajaratnam for his part seems to have little or nothing to show towards his non culpability on all the charges levelled against him and could spend a long time behind bars !

Indicted N.Y. Financier Gave Big to Hillary and Terror Charity.

Raj Rajaratnam Gave To Democratic Campaigns
Rajaratnam and his wife were also major contributors to a number of Democratic campaigns, giving a total of $118,000 to, among others, the Senate campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer and the presidential campaigns of Mrs. Clinton and Barack Obama.
“He was big with Hillary and then jumped over to Obama after Hillary lost,” said one Democratic party figure involved in fundraising.

Associates of Rajaratnam formed a Tamils for Clinton fund raising group for her presidential campaign and sought her help in getting the Tamil Tigers taken off the Stte Department’s Designated Terror List.

“You shouldn’t lump all terrorists together,” Sen. Clinton said in 2007. Members of the Tamils for Clinton met with former President bill Clinton in Dec. 2007 to press their case.

Rajaratnam is also a major trustee of the American India Foundation, which is a member of the Clinton Global Initiative. President Clinton is the Foundation’s honorary chair, and has publicly thanked Rajaratnam and his wife for their multi-million dollar support.

Nagaratnam Ranjithan, the President of the U.S. branch of TRO, told ABC News in 2008 that his organization has nothing to do with terrorism: “I think we got into trouble because we did so much work after the tsunami, and the Sri Lankan government was not all appreciative of it. The people are suffering because we have a few people who told us to stop.”
Ranjithan’s home was raided by the FBI in 2006 because of his ties to TRO.
Paraphrasing Gordon Gecko, the fictional character from the 1987 film “Wall Street” by director Oliver Stone, Bharara said, “greed, sometimes, is not good.”U.S. Attorney for Southern District of New York Preet Bharara called the hedge fund insider trading case brought by his office today, “the largest hedge fund insider trading case ever charged.”

  2. Nanda Says:

    Sunil,

    Thank you for revealing these. No wonder this barbaric woman, so mad with Bin Laden with no compassion to his family, likes this ugly fat man so much and hence LTTE ( the good terrorist).
    Our writers should be encouraged to write more on this matter to condemn this witch.

  3. Dham Says:

    While the Playboy husband busy with Monica, this woman was allured by the short black thing of the LTTE guru.

    Western countries never had enemies, they desperately create enemies, then they can invade countries and persistently destroy those countries. Sri lanka is good example, sri lanka did not do any ham to west but they cheated Sri lanka stabbed behind. they practiced this all over the world in every 10, 20, 30, 40 years of covert operation. This will continue until a big civil war begin in Europe and North America. This can be avoided if western public begin to realized that there is a fascist govt in the west run by spies and take action against these spies, and if western public continuously allow these spies to run their countries, then these spies bring west into a bloody war like Hitler’s war.
    May be some western public believe that their govts and spies are powerful and others can’t counter them when they commit crimes, but that is not always true. There is a huge Muslim population grow in the west and they believe that western and or western based spies supply ammunition to local groups to destroy countries like Pakistan. and What they believe is true, for a example Sri lanka.

    This is the proof I was looking for. I was always suspected that the LTTE terrorist organisation was secretly funded by a hidden Hand. The tamil diaspora in my opinion is not rich enough to fund a terrorist organisation like the LTTE. I always suspected that International bankers in Wall Street and especially City of London. Funds all these terrorist organisations Like Al Qaeda and LTTE. For a secret globalist agenda of destabalisation. Raj Rajaratnam was their goto middle man, I have no doubt that Raj Rajaratnam was picked by these evil international bankers, built him up made galleon company a force to be reckoned with on wall street. Also I have no doubt Al Qaeda and LTTE were created the British MI6 and American CIA. CIA is an extension of MI6. This issue goes much deeper than a simple conflict between sinhalese and tamils only restricted to the borders of Sri Lanka its much much bigger than that. Our world is run by a very dark force at the top that hates humanity.
