Earlier last month, responding to a news story under the headline “U.S. to make representations if 25,000 sign” in the Daily Mirror on December 13, The U.S. Embassy in Colombo said; The U.S. Government has given no assurance that we will act on the on-line petition regarding Sarath Fonseka in any manner.  The White House web site includes a place for people to express their opinions and advocate for action with an on-line petition initiative entitled “We the People ”  Petitions which receive a certain number of on-line signatures will be reviewed by a U.S. official, who will respond to the petition’s sponsor.   The existence of a petition on the site is neither an endorsement of the position advocated, nor a guarantee that the U.S. Administration will take action.”
