    This is an abnormal photo. I doubt it is edited by somewhere. I am ok with Siranthi, Mahinda and Mrs Obama with the photo. But I feel some suspect with stance of Obama.

    This is a doctored image. Examine the inconsistent shadows carefully.

    Rana Sunday, 03 October 2010 01:56 PM

    I dont think government will do a thing like that. It will create a diplomatic storm. Let the embassy reply.

    As part of the U.N. General Assembly events, President Barack Obama is hosting a reception for visiting heads of state at the American Museum of Natural History Thursday night. The museum has been closed to the public all day in preparation. Is this to say he met Mr Obama and Discus sth??

    Rana Sunday, 03 October 2010 09:07 AM

    He should have taken Mervin with him. He is the head of spot penalty kele' Judiciary system in Sri Lanka.

    I love Mrs.Obama

    Tharaka Chanaka Sunday, 03 October 2010 09:47 AM

    Nice to see our first lady finally smiling!

    Smart Aleck Sunday, 03 October 2010 09:47 AM

    Was this photo taken at the Natural History Museum in Washington D.C. or at Madame Tusaud's Wax Museum in London?

    Dr. R.seneviratne Monday, 04 October 2010 05:53 AM

    Did MR and Shiranthi visit Madam Tussaud's in London on their way home?

    Smart Aleck Sunday, 03 October 2010 09:52 AM

    Yeah! And look at the Star Spangled Banner and the American Presidential Flag.

    Josh Sunday, 03 October 2010 09:57 AM

    both the Obama's are taller than the Rajapakse's!!

    Perera Sunday, 03 October 2010 10:07 AM

    Was this MR home coming day or Obama home coming day? Both ladies wear red colour.

    Two towering personalities from Harvard with MR and wife.

    SK Sunday, 03 October 2010 10:22 AM

    what are the chances that this picture is doctored?

    manjula Sunday, 03 October 2010 10:30 AM

    you should read comments from American people about Barak Obama on online discussion forums. They are not quiet satisfied with him. It's like positive 50% negative 50%. That is not good for two years service as the President. Though he is better than Bush in some sections, what he is doing is keep running what Bush started and adding patches to american problems.

    lakmal Sunday, 03 October 2010 10:31 AM

    Obama's innocent laugh vs MR's rude face

    Labby Sunday, 03 October 2010 10:35 AM

    Clever camera tricks. Very convincing.

    KD Sunday, 03 October 2010 10:50 AM

    Do you think taking a photo with Obama is like attaining Nirvana?

    Sanjaya Sunday, 03 October 2010 10:52 AM

    I believe President should have worn a western suit. Even JR did that. And MR is very handsome in a suit. That also helps as these westerners then take him as one of theirs. Advisers please note.

    unl Monday, 04 October 2010 06:24 AM

    doctored by Obama ??? just to show he met MR ?

    unl Monday, 04 October 2010 06:25 AM

    you cannot find Mrs. Obama at Madam Tussaud's

    Smart Aleck Sunday, 03 October 2010 11:12 PM
