Sirisena Plays Same Old Tune Of ‘I Didn’t Know’ In A Bid To Save Himself

Following the damning revelations that came to light at the inaugural session of the Parliamentary Select Committee meeting probing Easter Attacks yesterday, Sirisena as usual seems to have been busy thinking of ways to steer clear of blame.

His answer to save himself from any culpability based on information revealed yesterday, was to issue a bizarre tweet from his official Twitter account @MaithripalaS this morning.

The tweet published in Sinhala translates to:

“As discussions of the Security Council was leaked to media via unofficial channels, the structure was changed and National Security Committee was established and convened bi weekly. On 19/4/8, at the meeting convened for Senior Police officials, no information was relayed to me regarding the 21st attacks.
I reject any reports that claim I was made aware of the information.”

The tweet was met with confusion as no mention was made about a senior police officials’ meeting on April 8, at the hearings yesterday. In fact, it is unclear if any Senior Police officials could have made themselves available for a meeting on April 8th as the security apparatus seems to have been busy with the visit of Indian Defense Secretary, Sanjay Mitra which fell from April 6-8.

Furthermore, even if Sirisena was not briefed about impending threat of Easter Attacks on April 8, it still doesn’t stop him from being held accountable for failing to hold a single National Security Council meeting since February 19 until the date of the attacks.

        Well well what about US puppet Bondscam Ranil’s “I do not know about Mahendran, bondscam. MCC writing Vision 2025 and all Bondscam Ranil’s economic policies to crash the Lankan economy with debt and asset strip the country to benefit US military project and SOFA in Sri Lanka.
        Bondscam Ranil must be jailed NOW and tried in open court for treason.He is by far the bigger traitor and grave danger to Lanka, than the clown President or even white van war criminal Gota at this time.
        Ranil the neo con neoliberal dictator in waiting must be Impeached for the Bondscam and for selling Lanka to the US in the hope that they will make him president for life, after the planned invasion of 150 US Peace Corps “volunteers” with full diplomatic immunity and impunity and above Lankan Law in October this year to run social media campaigns and fix the elections;

      I strongly believe that MY 3 was informed of the tip by his Intel chief on the very day (4/4) he received the Indian tip. Second briefing might have occurred on 4/11 when the Intel chief might have informed him the inability to confirm the tip!

      Sirisena,

      You are a Pachaya (Liar), Traitor, Sevalaya.(sleaze), Mala-Perethaya (living off the dead), and the most irresponsible Sri Lanka had for some time.

      Parliament won’t impeach you, because they are imbeciles. What do you want to do? Keep lying, Traitor?

        The Daily Mirror news item referred to by Amarasiri says [“……National Movement for a Just Society Convenor Sarath Wijesuriya said yesterday they deeply regretted being part of the blunder of helping to elect Maithripala Sirisena the President and Ranil Wickremesinghe the Prime Minister……”]
        The voters changed the GoSL on 08 January 2015. We learned a lesson ‘The Lankan Elites care about their wealth only’.
        Prof Sarath Wijesuria has not! He is suggesting that the MR gang is better.

          There is no need to get back to Gota or MaRa.

          It has to be Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka, or other with guts, who will make MaRa, Gota and Sira, pea in their pants.

    HE is making a mockery of himself. Even if HE did not know for a fact, HE cannot say it. The honorable course was for him to say whatever the nature of functioning of the machinery HE as the head of state seeks an apology of the nation for an ineffective machinery leading to this massacre. The video on the internet says the Intel Maestro had even sent some documents to IGP eyes only and delivered under acknowledgement but no avail. This shows that everyone knew that in trying to deal with this situation would ultimately boomerang on him or her. That explains for a lot of pen pushing but no real activity.

    The Mega Liar of our State is trying to wriggle out of his Responsibilities as the a Leader who is supposed to be in command.
    Nothing should pass through without his knowledge. is that not n the constitution of responsibilities?
    He took more than he could chew greedily ofcourse ,now trying to pass the buck on any one else but himself.

    We commend the decision by speaker to telecast the proceedings of select committee probing Easter Sunday attack

    This gives us the voters to witness how those who m we send to govern us ,safe guard national wealth and develop them for future generations have acted .

    What we saw was that officials have done thrum duty whilst the ones voted to high echelons of power whilst enjoying all the benefits at the cost of people have cared two hoots about our security

    A peon knows what his job function is
    But these so called all powerful dies not seem to know his obligations and duties towards the masses

    President Sirisena and his acts became clear also after 52-day crisis in last october 2018. Shameless man has no whatsoever respect to push it on the other. I wonder why any of the Parliamentarians failed to bring an impeachment against him yet ?????
    .
    Even in his SELF MADE CRISIS in last october, he repeated that his ADVISERs asked him to go for dissolution of the parliment , albeit unconstitutional.
    :
    However, SC of the country made it very clear it was UNCONSTITUTIONAL president’s act on dissolution of parliament – in the aftermath of this indicent, local media NEVER stood against the man ‘s miserable acts.
    :
    Now ALL is becoming clear, HE HAS FULLY failed as a MINISTER of defence
    Let killing over 300 and and injuring 500.
    Still the MEDIA covers in favour of him, since MEDIA that are biased to RAJAPAKSHES support SIIRSENA than UNP led GOVT.

    He likes the power, the perks, and the opportunities to enrich himself and his family.
    He is not going to do the decent thing for the country. Even releasing a terrorist like that BBS goon, is all to win votes, and appease the Buddhists who will vote for him.
    He is a skunk. He did nothing when he was warned about the terrorist attack, did not act like a leader, and protect innocent people. Only idiots will want to vote for this loser.

    This fellow sirisena is the one who protected saharan. He arrested the CID chief with false accusation while the CID chief was planning to arrest saharan as revealed recently. Why the murder of sirisena and gota went silent , it was clearly a fabricated accusation to put the CID chief behind bars. Where is the recorded evidence where is evidence from madush , al are absolute lies. Sirisena got money from saharan probably through hisbula for his campaign, this gamarala is the dirtiest politician ever

    Are we to believe that RAW which tipped off SL from the 4th onwards did not inform Sirisena when he was in India on their soil as they provided security to the President? Further, didn’t he tell the Parliament that he got to know about the attack when he was in Singapore before the attack? Leave alone this guy not being able to govern the country, but he does not even know how to lie!

    Airlines had a project to elevate good customers to a “Frequent Flyer” status. This has seen a change to “Frequent Liars” to accommodate MS, MR and CBK – all of whom qualified. Some people never had it so good. Unfortunately, we did not ever find men/women of character who could be entrusted with such extraordinary power . At best, they qualify for a C or D pass. Mediocrity is simply not good enough. Monkeys given razors can do much damage. It takes three generations to breed a gentleman/woman and there are no shortcuts.

    Mr Gamarala Sirisena,
    Muslim Mowlani mentioned that the person who made the boms by mistake blew himself in february 2019 and was admitted to a hospital to get treatment. He had many times complained to the intelligence agencies about this and muslim extremism.
    If you and your 225 clowns did not know about this then you all should be thrown in to jail with death sentence. In spite of innocent muslims given warnings to the intelligence agencies and also India raw given warnings, if you and your 225 clowns did not know about the despicable attack, you need to resign immediately. Legal action should be taken against you and your 225 clowns. We people are not stupid you bastard. You waited until innocent 325 people got killed and 500’s got injured to address this issue.
    Why did you wait until now to take action against the peopl who destroyed wilpattu? Are you taking action ? I am not sure.
    Why did you and your 225 clowns waited until now to stop Muslim extremism?
    Why did you not investigate what was preached in universities?
    Do you deserve to be our leader? NOPE! GET THE FK OUT!

    For how long can the President Maithripala Srisena keep on twisting his replies. The President is the one who facilitated the copper factory owned by a Muslim who was close to Rishard Badurdeen.
    President is the one who kept Security and Intelligence section with him and kept Ranil out of reach. President is the one who ignored the warnings of bombings and went outside the country. President is the one who appointed Hisbullah as the Governor for the East when Hisbullah himself demanded for it. President was aware of the 200 acres of land allocated to Hisbullah for the establishment of the Sharia University. President was also aware of the 500 acres of land in Mannar which was bought by Rishard Badurdeen. In spite of all these, President further gave Hisbullah absolute authority. President is also aware that Hisbullah and Rishard Badurdeen are against India which wanted North and East Provinces to be amalgamated and President knows that Hisbullah said that stream of blood will run if North and East Provinces are again amalgamated. Finally, President knows that Hisbullah was close to the members of Thowheed Jamaath’s leader Saharan. Moreover, President knows that Rishard Badurdeen’s relatives were involved in terrorist activities. President’s reluctance to arrest Rishard Badurdeen, Asath Ali and Hisbullah raises suspicion whether he is waiting till some tragedy occurs to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe. Latest is the case of sterilization at both Kurunegala and Kandy in addition to the Muslim teacher pretending to be an assistant to a Hindu priest and mixed contraceptive pills in the Panchamirtham which was meant to serve the devotees. After all, President was a Grama Sevaka with an evil-mind to take revenge on his opponent. Now he is tense and it is better for to resign in the best interests of the country. Not a fir & proper person to be President of a country.

    Two things. (1) We are thankful that this Committee sittings are in public domain so that all the evidence would come to light. (2) Now we know the HUGE SHORTCOMINGS in the administrative machinery at the very top and the lackadaisical manner matters of Governing are handled. However. one “Legislator” toady vehemently protested over this “Public Hearing” stating that such a method “Exposes” the Security establishments. What a “IDIOT” and a “ROUGE” he is to us who put him in that seat in the Legislature? Then on the other hand this President who now tells us that certain security matters that were discussed were “LEAKED” to the “Media” and he was compelled to “Re Constitute” and “Re-Schedule” the meetings. Are we not ENTITLE to know “WHO” leaked such vulnerable information and “WHAT” media published those? So far as he, the President doesn’t make such information known to us, we have every right to RATE him (President) a “BIG LIAR”.

    REMINDER.: It is the International community, UNHCR, dollar Kaakkas (some are here and some are inside the parliament) who made this disaster. there are some people inside the parliament who are really distressed, Depressed, because they knew it. They are not the ones who scream. Even Mangala plays a different TUNE now.

    In addition, by releasing Gnanasara you have shown your true colours. You are a RACIST too and a BAD one at that by pretending you are FULL OF COMPASSION.
