    I dont understand what SP Ruwan Gunasakera is saying. He says they were unaware of such a plot but the intelligence unit might have received such information. If the intelligence unit had received information of a plot then why wasn't it shared with the security forces?

    For us expatriates living in the West it is laughable when we read US Intelligence officers had arrived in Sri Lanka.Our Lankan security officers are million times smarter thantheir western counterparts.
