    alex, killing a journalist is war against the freedom of press/media that no govt or army can win.

    If any military person has violated rules and regulations s/he should be punished no matter her/his rank. That is justice. Keith N did his duty and job as a media person and any injustice done to him should be righted. Whatever side does not matter.

    Where is Fonseka? Didn't these people fight under him? In the end only he escaped the revenge by going into politics.
