Sri Lanka’s newest” friend” from the West- A short response to Michele Sison, Ambassador designate to Sri Lanka (ref U.S. Senate hearing).
Posted on June 19th, 2012



Your appearance before the US Senate Foreign Affairs Committee was a revelation. The dictionary meaning of diplomacy is “the art and practice of conducting negotiations between nations and the skills in handling affairs without arousing hostility”. On all counts,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ despite your claims of having served in theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ foreign service for 30 years, you are the very antithesis of a diplomat. You have stumbled at the very first hurdle.

On all aspects of your presentation regarding Sri LankaƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ you are fundamentally in error.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ After having their cries for help to rid the country of the scourge of terrorism, ignored by the west for well nigh 30 years,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ the government of President Mahinda Rajapakse decided that this debilitating cancerƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ must be excised. MagnificientlyƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ supported by his security forces and the country in general, he went it alone and consigned the LTTE terrorists to the dustbin of history in May 2009. NOT A SINGLE BOMB HAS EXPLODED IN THE COUNTRY FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS!

Instead of criticisingƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Sri Lanka,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  the USƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and its allies should cut out the hypocrisy and congratulate her forƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ridding, not only the region but indeed theƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ whole world, ofƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ vermin who were breaking the law on many fronts, trafficking narcotics, credit card fraud, people smuggling not counting the murderous rampage they indulged in Sri LankaƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ eliminating at will, thousands of innocent men, women and children including two heads of state and many community leaders..

If you do take up the position ofƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ US Ambassador in Sri Lanka,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ it is unfortunate to noteƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ that you will be carrying some very heavy baggage to thatƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ countryƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ because of your erroneous and ill founded statements. TheƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ naturally placid people of Sri Lanka, be they Sinhalese, Tamil, MuslimƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ or Burgher etcƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ will demand thatƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ the very first thing you do to win their confidence as the first citizen of the US in Sri Lanka is toƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ explain the reasons for your completely uncalled for criticism of a country that suffered so muchƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ over three decades of mayhem and havoc at the hands ofƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ a brutal gang of criminals posing as “freedom fighters” whilst the rest of the world looked on as this beautiful country bled. Thankfully, Sri Lanka’s resilience has paid off and they are on the cusp of a new dawn despite the evil efforts of the blood thirsty elements of the separatists diaspora and the LTTE terrorists rump

Turn the torch inwards Madam Ambassador designate and you might find some answers.

Thank you

    Well said, Ranjith! No wonder Obama and Clinton have selected her to institute a ‘regime change’ in Sri Lanka, just like in Syria. Obama has effectively been bought by ‘Tamils for Obama’… and will continue to harass Sri Lanka.

    Hope Mitt Romney will come in.

  2. Marco Says:


    Any chance you could provide a link to Ashort response at the senate hearing?
    Rather surprised none of the local news media picked it up.

  3. Lorenzo Says:

    I don’t think Tamils have bought over Obama and Clinton (and John McCain).

    It is US strategic interests in the region. USA wants a FAITHFUL ar**licker in the region to attack China and Pakistan. They know Tamils are the best SLAVES ever. That’s why the British took Tamil slaves to many countries including SL, Malaysia, Singapore, Nigeria, Murutius, Fiji, Kenya, South Africa, West Indies, etc. and pit them agaonst NATIVE LOCAL people in these countries.

  4. Lorenzo Says:

    USA has bought over WILLING Tamil slaves to do their dirty tricks. In return Tamils want Tamil Elam for doing all the dirty work.

  5. sena Says:

    And the government is not far behind either. They request another 500M on top of 2B from IMF (wink wink USA). Ms. Sison knows she is in a position to dictate. What the LTTE could not get through war is being materialized due to corruption, waste and mismanagement

    i’m really surprised “I don’t think Tamils have bought over Obama and Clinton (and John McCain).”

    Back in 2007, the SL Ministry of defence and the canadian press reported that one of Clinton’s fundraisers was also a fundraiser for Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO), a front for LTTE and listed among US state department banned terror organisations.

    In 2008, Clinton was forced to return the donations to the outlaws -TRO.

    We cannot completely rule out that Obama, John McCain and the rest are “clean” from ever receiving donations from the many unknown fronts of the LTTE. The same goes for the politicians in SL!

  7. Lorenzo Says:


    All that is true.

    But compared to other contributors, Tamil contributions are VERY VERY SMALL. Obama spent $1.7 billion and Tamil contribution would have been only a fraction of it. That is not worth losing a good friend. Also these money are drug, human trafficking, credit card scam monies. They cannot expect such money on an ongoing basis.

    As you say Clinton returned the money.

    Tamils buying over the American president for money is not a sound statement at all.
    These HIGHLY RICH politicians cannot be bought over with such SMALL sums of money.
    USA-SL relationship was very strong to be broken by this worthless dirt.

    There is a different reason for this. They have bought over Tamil hit men to destabilize SL in return for Tamil Elam. That is more like it. They did this in Iraq (Chalabi), Egypt, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, etc.

    Hi Lorenzo,

    I am surprised as to how you did not notice the VVIP treatment that Hilary gave to the LTTE Lobby of USA.. They were given front seats of all the important events of the Hilary’s campaign.. Check out the past videos and you will find sitting in the VVIP area of her events.

    Hilary was $30M in debt at that time, and Raj Rajaratnam (Mr B.) was a pledging Billionaire who was marketed to Hilary by the LTTE Lobby.

  9. A. Sooriarachi Says:

    I dont think Tamil Tigers could ever buy over the USA to get them to dance to the Tamil diaspora tune. What I think is happening is that the USA is killing two birds with one stone. They are getting Tamil funds for their campaigns etc and also using Tamils to do the dirty work in other nations. History has shown that the British took Tamils around the world to both work as slaves on plantations and also to undermine the independence movements of the native populations of those nations. Having planted Tamils in all British colonies, the British used them to implement their infamous divide and rule policy. The USA is simply doing what the British did and is using the Tamil Tigers to control SriLanka and India and then extend it to other nations lioke Malaysia, South Africa, Singapore etc where Tamils are present in significant numbers. Wherever US interest coincides with Tamil Tiger interests, the Tigers will be lucky, but where it differs, the US will not care two hoots for the Tamil Tiger lobby.

  10. Lorenzo Says:


    Raj gave only $120,000 to MANY politicians over many years. This is nothing in a US election campaign. Anyway Hilary returned the little she got.

    He gave $3.5 million to Tigers and $1 million to Ravi Karunayagam (UNP MP).

    Tamils were NEVER the BIGGEST or even SIGNIFICANT contributors to BO, HC or JM campaigns. With such little money in US election standards, it is impossible to BUY OVER these top Americans.

    What happened was Americans bought over Tamils as they do in every part of the world to do their dirty regime change stinky work.

    Don’t forget bloody Blake dirt did EVERYTHING he could to stop the war, discredit SL, etc. BEFORE Obama. He was much worse than Butenis and the new Sicion woman.
