Did P Chidambaram, the former Union Minister who handled the portfolios of Home and Finance lie to parliament over the so-called slaying of Tamil Tiger terrorist V Prabhakaran responsible for the brutal murder of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi? Does it have a Sonia Gandhi angle?
Many facts point to this possibility.
The most important ones:
DNA and fingerprint evidence to prove a body that seemed to be that of Prabhakaran paraded on India’s television screens on May 19 2009 haven’t been submitted by the Lankan regime so far. [The controversial slaying of Osama bin Laden too had similar mysteries , but, the US President Obama said that his government has the DNA evidence – that it had in its possession the dead body of the wanted terrorist.]
Did Prabhakaran escape from Lanka earlier?
On January 19 2009, Lanka’s Lt General Sarath Fonseka indicated that Prabhakaran may have escaped through India, a report in the Sydney Morning Herald said.
Sri Lankan government troops have almost completely cornered the Tamil Tigers in their north-eastern jungle base and the rebels’ leader [Prabhakaran] may already have fled the island, the army chief said.
Lieutenant General Sarath Fonseka told reporters that he believed Tiger chief Veluppillai Prabhakaran may already have escaped by sea.“We don’t know if he is still there. He may have already fled in a boat,” Fonseka said
Veluppillai Prabhakaran, 54, the leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) was declared killed by the Sri Lankan government on May 18.
A different report was filed by Jyoti Thottam, on May 19 2009 for the international news weekly – Time.
“When the troops opened fire, the van [carrying Prabhakaran] tried to get away, but it was also hit,” said another high-level source from the military. “The vehicle caught fire.”
“He was killed with two others inside the vehicle. There will be a formal announcement later,” said an official.
Prabhakaran is said to have come under attack as he tried to drive out of the battle zone in a small convoy of a van and an ambulance along with several close aides.
Britain’s right-wing The Telegraph said something else.
Prabhakaran was one of 18 top LTTE leaders killed in the early-morning ambush, the government said. On May 19, the army released images to Sri Lankan television of Prabhakaran’s body, still in its uniform, in which his face is clearly visible.
In the run up to this so-called killing, Chidambaram went on record saying he did not wish Prabhakaran ill!
“We do not wish Prabhakaran ill,” Chidambaram told a television news channel on April 28 2009 – exactly 20 days before Prabhakaran was declared dead in action.
Excerpts from a report put out by IANS on February 1 2010 quoting Chidambaram, then Union Home Minister show a serious lacuna:“The CBI has told me that they have received documentation from the government of Sri Lanka confirming the death of Prabhakaran,” Chidambaram said while presenting the monthly report of his ministry.
He did not elaborate.
The remark follows a CBI statement last month, in response to an RTI application that it was yet to get the death certificate of Prabhakaran, the founder leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).Prabhakaran along with his intelligence chief Pottu Amman were declared proclaimed offenders after a LTTE suicide bomber blew up Rajiv Gandhi near Chennai in May 1991.India outlawed the LTTE in August 1992.
It is pertinent to note in the background of the sudden clamour for the release of Rajiv Gandhi killers – Chidambaram had said that Prabhakaran wasn’t India’s enemy!
Operative excerpts from a Press Trust of India [PTI] report dated July 18 2010 quoting Chidambaram whose headline says it all – LTTE Chief Prabhakaran was not our enemy:
“Slain LTTE leader V Prabhakaran would have been the uncrowned monarch of the northern and eastern provinces of Sri Lanka. Prabhakaran was not our enemy. We were opposed to the path chosen by him,” Chidambaram had been quoted as saying.
The Interpol Red Corner Notice against Prabhakaran was withdrawn only in the 3rd week of December 2010, according to media reports.
The man who decimated the Tigers – General Sarat Fonseka who had indicated that Prabhakaran may have escaped 5 months before the claim of the Tiger being declared killed in action.
Perhaps as a result, Fonseka was a hero in May 2009 but is now less than a zero, stripped of all his military honours and is out on some kind of conditional bail.
Yet, under Chidambaram, the Union Home Ministry told the TADA court in the outskirts of Chennai that it had withdrawn the international red corner notice against Prabhakaran 19 months after the announcement of Prabhakaran having been killed.
Several years after the so-called crushing of Tamil militancy, several tens of thousands of Tamils are languishing behind barbed wires and iron bars in Sri Lanka under inhuman conditions.
India supported Rajapaksa in his incessant pogrom against Tamils and Chidambaram says that it is to help the Tamil speaking minority in Lanka!
Worse, Chidambaram justified training Lankan naval personnel who have turned the sea separating India and Lanka into a watery killing field despite the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly passing several resolutions to the contrary.
The Congress party to which Chidambaram belongs, was in cahoots and perhaps still is with Thol Thirumavalavan who claims to be an incarnation of Prabhakaran vide posters pasted all over Tamil Nadu!Comprehensive evidence have drilled a series of holes in the tale about V Prabhakaran having been slain by the Lankan Government on May 18 2009.
India had and continues to have the fingerprints of Prabhakaran taken in 1981 and 1986 in India. If the body paraded on television screens on May 18 2009 was that of Prabhakaran, it would have been very easy to take the fingerprints off the body and compare them with those in India openly before television cameras. That was never done.
The Lankan regime had Prabhakaran’s parents within its reach. A DNA report would have confirmed to all and sundry that Prabhakaran had indeed been killed in action. The Government of Sri Lanka is yet to do it.Nobody with a sane mind would acceptable television pictures of a body that proclaimed a person as so and so implying anyone can be depicted as anyone in these days of plastic surgery.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra visited Rajiv killer Nalini in prison on March 18 2008. The murdered former PM’s daughter is yet to provide an explanation as to why she travelled some 5600 km on a single day to meet Nalini.
The trillion dollar question therefore is:
Did P Chidambaram, the former Union Minister who handled the portfolios of Home and Finance lie to parliament over the so-called slaying of Tamil Tiger terrorist V Prabhakaran responsible for the brutal murder of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi?
The time-line of reports on the Osama slaying reveals some skeletons.Operative excerpts from a Southern Features News Service despatch citing international news agency Associated Press and senior journalist Mark Memmott: May 1, 2011
Update at 11:28 p.m. ET. Osama Killed Last Week In Pakistan, AP Reports:
“A senior U.S. counterterrorism official said bin Laden was killed in a ground operation in Pakistan, not by a Predator drone,” The Associated Press reports.
“The official said it happened last week.”Osama bin Laden, who created the al-Qaida terrorist network that killed 3,000 people in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, is dead.
President Obama is about to announce that news to the nation, NPR and other news outlets have been told by U.S. officials.
With the al-Qaida leader’s death, a new and dramatic moment has occurred in a long struggle that has seen the U.S. go to war first in Afghanistan — where al-Qaida was based — and then in Iraq.
Update at 11:36 p.m. ET. Hundreds Are Cheering, Singing Outside The White House:A crowd is outside the gates and can be heard singing the national anthem and chanting “USA!”
Update at 11:42 p.m. ET.
Bin Laden Was Killed Today, The President Says:Last August, the president says, the U.S. got a lead on bin Laden’s whereabouts “within a compound deep inside Pakistan.”“Last week,” he says, “I determined we had enough intelligence to take action.”“Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted action” and in a firefight killed the al-Qaida leader. The U.S. now has his body.
Update at 11:45 p.m. ET. “Justice Has Been Done”:Tonight, says the president, “We can say to those families who have lost loved ones … justice has been done.”
The American Naval SEAL who ‘took the guy out’ claimed to be in penury, a report in the Esquire magazine said.
The Obama regime termed it lies.
The impartial Los Angeles Times had expressed mild surprise over the denial.Some 14 minutes before President Obama told the world through television cameras that Osama had been killed on May 1 2011, an Islamabad date-lined Associated Press report said, the 1957-born Saudi origin terrorist had been killed a week back.
No one would doubt the ‘erasure’ of Osama.Obama may have ‘slipped up’ over the timing of the killing, but he surely would not have lied about being in possession of D.N.A. fingerprints to prove that Osama had indeed been killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan – a space under 100 km of Islamabad, the federal capital of the Islamic rogue state.A media report questioned the –slighting of Osama slayer.
The now-retired Navy Seal soldier who says he shot Osama bin Laden dead claims he’s struggling to support his wife and feed his children after the U.S. government abandoned him.
The unidentified specialized Seal Team 6 member says after his 16 years of service in the navy he doesn’t have a pension, health care or protection for himself and his family, according to a report published in the March 2013 issue of Esquire.
“I asked if there was some transition from my Tricare to Blue Cross Blue Shield. They said no. You’re out of the service, your coverage is over. Thanks for your sixteen years. Go f— yourself,” he said.
Another unidentified Seal Team 6 member says getting killed on duty offers better benefits for his family than if he retires, Esquire reported.
“If I get killed on this next deployment, I know my family will be taken care of. But if I come back alive and retire, I won’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out for the rest of my life. Sad to say, it’s better if I get killed.”
The navy, in response to questions from MSNBC, said: “We take seriously the safety and security of our people as well as our responsibility to assist sailors making the transition to civilian life.”
