It seems like poetic justice that the USA has finally come to grief with their own Human rights violations culpability WHERE THE OLD ADAGE” PEOPLE IN GLASS HOUSES SHOULD NOT THROW STONES AT OTHERS ESPECIALLY WITH NO TANGIBLE EVIDENCE BEYOND SPECULATION AND WHEN THEIR OWN BACKYARD SEEM LITTERED WITH GUILT!” SPRINGS INSTANTLY TO MIND.
So! The high and Mighty USA who continued to harass and intimidate Sri Lanka, seems to be in an impasse! Egged on by the global Tamil Tiger sympathetic diaspora and all the enemies of the Nation of Sri Lanka who combined with so many dubious entities like the now Infamous Channel 4, the departed Naveen Pillai of the UN, the EU as well as David Brown of the UK and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and others of similar ilk who chose to jump on ther bandwagon of speculative innuendo,based on falsified reports and tear jerkers of very creative artists to mislead the world at large despite their unprovable nature sans tangible credence or evidence attesting to culpability of criminalities do not justify the validities sought based upon the recently exposed indiscretiions to which all of them were surely part and parcel of in a vert logical sense!
Beyond speculation and conjecture, they now have a huge dilemma on their hands towards accountability for criminal activities involving the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) which has very recently come to light in very provable perspective. A shocker and a shameful revelation which should send a loud and clear message that this surely is poetic justice for all the intimidations and wrongful accusationd made in collaboration with sources opposed to Sri lanka including the United nations Human Rights Watch perhaps throwing a mantle of ignominy over all of Sri Lanka’s adversaries in this respect and projecting the imagr of president Rajapaksa Sky High!!!
This comes at a time when the President of Sri Lanka has called a Presidential Election and his opponents led by the likes of ship jumping Maithripala Sirisena the common candidate who appears at times to hang in the inertia of ineptitude in limbo as well as his novice like approach to politics depending on the wisdom and wit of half wits and deadbeats with whom he appears to have cast his lot! The sure sign of a loser!
Given all his meanderings which at times only point to how obsessed he is towards seizing power undoubtedly a quest which he has disentitled himself to even before the Presidential Race began and together with his new found buddies the Ranil Wickremasinghe camp and his disjointed UNP, Chandrika Kumaratunga whose incapacities were revealed during her tenure as President he seems to be on a one way street to defeat.
CBK significantly a sore loser and possibly a former would be betrayer of the Nation to her enemies the LTTE predominantly as well as Tamil Nadu covertly perhaps who sought to compromise her integrities towards her loyalties to her country and the rest of the deserters of the UPFA who once aligned themselves with the President and have quit for painfully obvious reasons that weren’t conducive towards their personal ambits appeared ever ready to take up the cause of the UNHRC allegations led by the US /UN et al alliance but now must be considering their options.The Sinhala Nation hopefully will become very aware of this prior to casting their presidential votes as the would rue the day they voted for the motley bunch of campaigners led by this willy nilly indecisive orator of borrowed punch lines and cliches which were echoed by his champions not so long ago albeit ignominiously dumped and now their hopes of a US backed boost could be fast fading as the US indiscretions towards their own liabilities towards Human Rights have conme to light in the most incredible manner!
They have very visibly now formed an alliance hell bent on dethroning the President and in the face of the transparencies pointing towards US culpability towards Human Rights violations which are not only contemptible but also alarmingly bold given the officious rhetoric that was constantly used against Sri Lanka by the US authorities over the related issues at a time when there were many analysts pointing out the indiscretions of the US whose own backyard was in dissaray , here now is proof of the pudding! .
Maithripala Sirisena and his allies while appearing to be ever willing to engage the one great patriot of Sri Lanka in confrontation appear to be making a grave error. The foremost leader who delivered Sri Lanka from the worst enemies in her history, who fought the most remarkable battle against the worst enemies Sri Lanka has ever had to deal with and won within the requirement of a legitimate campaign against terror while also conducting his campaign in a compassionate and nation friendly manner towards preserving sovereignity and territorial integrity.
Needless to say Sirisena and his allies may be left high and dry in their quest as backing the USA over their Human Rights accusations against Sri Lanka was a major issue as part of their campaign platform alongside other puny issues which are more than likely to backfire on them as they seem hardly feasible towards uplifting Sri Lanka as opposed to dragging it into the mire of indecision and negative progress which will surely be viewed objectively towards disenfranchising any ambitions towards a run for the presidency as he already seems to have established his own dreamt of a franchise towards the presidency somewhat prematurely.!
Here are the findings of the US Senate relative to the culpabilities of the USA and its Central Intelligence Agency where they have neiter cause nor mandate to hurl accusations at Sri Lanka over the issue uf the UNHRC which in fact appears to be fast becoming a non issue! One which aspiring Presidential Candidate was a sure shot towards projecting his victory which now seems farcial from this singlemost perspective.Wrong guidance, wrong inspiration from the wrong sources perhaps in a Nation that adulates the securities her President has provided on an ongoing basis for all Lankans, with no NGO links that could leave many vulnerabilities exposed!!
” In a career-defining speech, Sen. Mark Udall took to the Senate floor Wednesday to disclose classified information regarding an internal CIA investigation into the agency’s Bush-era “enhanced interrogation techniques.”
Udall, an outbound Democrat from Colorado, began revealing key conclusions from the so-called Panetta Review, written in 2011 and named after then-CIA Director Leon Panetta. Udall says that the Panetta Review gives evidence that the CIA is still lying about the scope of enhanced interrogation techniques used during the Bush administration.
That deceit is continuing today under current CIA Director John Brennan, Udall said.
“One disturbing finding: Director Brennan and the CIA are continuing to willfully provide inaccurate information and misrepresent the efficacy of torture,” Udall said. “In other words: The CIA is lying.”
Obama, Udall said, “has expressed full confidence in Director Brennan and demonstrated that trust by making no effort at all to rein him in.” Udall additionally referred to Brennan’s “failed leadership” and suggested that he should resign.
Udall said that redactions in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s landmark torture report obfuscated key details about the CIA’s harsh interrogation methods. Among those, Udall said, the report is ambiguous about how many CIA officials participated in the brutal practices. In reality, it was only a handful, he said.
“Torture just didn’t happen after all,” Udall said. “Real, actual people engaged in torture. Some of these people are still employed by the CIA.”
Udall said it was bad enough not to prosecute these officials, but to reward or promote them, Udall said, was incomprehensible. Udall called on Obama “to purge” his administration of anyone who was engaged in torturing prisoners.
“He needs to force a cultural change at the CIA,” Udall said.
As he spoke, Udall continued to give a blistering and detailed account of the CIA leadership’s and their refusal to come clean with the American people on the Bush-era program. Udall accused the CIA of outright lying to the committee during its investigation.
“CIA was knowingly providing inaccurate information to the committee in the present day,” Udall said.
Udall publicly disclosed the existence of the Panetta Review during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing last December. It has been previously reported that it harshly criticized the utility of the CIA’s brutal Bush-era interrogation techniques.
Udall and other Democratic senators on the intelligence panel have suggested the Panetta review strongly corroborates the findings in their committee’s torture report, which was released Tuesday.
Since the torture report’s release, top CIA officials including current Brennan have swiftly defended the agency and its practices and accused the intelligence committee’s investigation of being misguided.
The speech Udall gave Wednesday will likely be the last of his Senate career. In November, Udall lost his seat to Republican Rep. Cory Gardner. The defeat was viewed by many in the privacy and civil-liberties community as a stinging loss, as Udall for years has aggressively criticized perceived abuses wrought by intelligence agencies, including mass surveillance operations carried out by the National Security Agency.”
