Mahinda Rajapaksa is President of the corrupt Sinhalese government in Sri Lanka. He is a man with few morals and one who will not hesistate to use over the top force to butcher Tamil civilians. He has kept details of his terrible crimes hidden through use of censorship. He will even stoop to murdering his friends (news reporter Wickramatunge) in an attempt to stop the truth from leaking out.
Rajapaksa has just declared that not a single Tamil civilian has died, despite UN reports claiming 20,000 have died. It reminds me of the 'great lie' concept used by Joseph Goebbells in Nazi Germany.
