    To most PEOPLE including the type of Ali Baba Rajapaksa and his types she is indescribable. Actual fact is she is a very knowledgeable well balanced leader who failed to be bold

    Birds of a Feather Flock together. Sri Lanka will reign high once again...sans the new constitution and the US. Trump is a good man who will not hurt us like the Obama Regime.

    vithura Friday, 06 July 2018 02:10 PM

    So when was it that SL did reign high? Pre or Post 1972 constitution ?

    Haramanis Friday, 06 July 2018 11:50 AM

    How did you manage to escape jail??? with her counsel.

    Ceylon Friday, 06 July 2018 11:50 AM

    Why didnt give your wise counsal to srilanka?.by the way she is now waiting 4 months to give a call to traitor sirisena.waiting for six months to meeting appointment for sirisena.

    Nuwan Friday, 06 July 2018 11:58 AM

    Wise counsel now has a very different meaning.

    Doug Friday, 06 July 2018 12:22 PM

    Very rarely does a US diplomat gives such credit, also another side kick to MR camp.

    vithura Friday, 06 July 2018 02:12 PM

    I am sure you meant it was a kick up the proverbial.

    Sugath Friday, 06 July 2018 12:24 PM

    Was under the impression US Ambassador Atul Keshap was a intelligent man.Seems he is easily fooled.

    Ceylon Friday, 06 July 2018 01:17 PM

    Degrees,experience cant match with charm friendly woman's fine tactics.

    JIM Friday, 06 July 2018 01:59 PM

    He is an Indian, at heart.

    S B Lokuge Friday, 06 July 2018 03:00 PM

    He is just another Indian scum like to destroy Sri Lanka

    mr bean n gang Friday, 06 July 2018 12:26 PM

    if she was a good adviser people would have not suffered during her regime.. fool can only fools themselves.

    saman Friday, 06 July 2018 12:37 PM

    Of course!

    Rajanram Friday, 06 July 2018 01:25 PM

    She should be in the jail for installing corrupt government.

    M.O.Daya Friday, 06 July 2018 04:38 PM

    Or for nominating Rajapakse as the SLFP candidate?

    Flanker Friday, 06 July 2018 01:32 PM

    wise counsel... my foot. she would informed him never should one attend a meeting on time...she is GROBR women!!!

    Singhela Friday, 06 July 2018 01:43 PM

    CBK wise!?!? Certainly not. This woman plundered the country, so she could enjoy the luxuries that Epsom, Surrey in England has to offer.

    Harini Friday, 06 July 2018 06:52 PM

    Much like the government she helped bring to power.

    Mahir Friday, 06 July 2018 01:56 PM

    Machang, you always have fun in Sri Lanka.

    Gayan Friday, 06 July 2018 01:57 PM

    Missaka Friday, 06 July 2018 01:58 PM

    Premalal Friday, 06 July 2018 03:17 PM

    So all Americans not smart. There are dumb ones as well.

    Dimuthu Mendis Friday, 06 July 2018 03:24 PM

    Keshap, you will be thrilled if you could have read "Chaura Rajina" by Victor Ivon. and request counselling in areas you even haven't heard before. (unfortunately I don't think it has an English translation).

    Ruwan Friday, 06 July 2018 04:57 PM

    "vice" alright..

    GH Friday, 06 July 2018 06:15 PM

    Yes, meeting is worthwhile because she was one of the presidents who spoilt the nation after Premadasa and Maithreepala.

    cbk amma Friday, 06 July 2018 06:43 PM

    this woman ruined the country, what advise can she possibly give to US??!!!!

    Lokka Friday, 06 July 2018 07:03 PM

    Keshap, you are going!! GOOD BYE!! Don't ever come here again. Let us live our lives your interferences.
