    This is obviously a ruse to avoid the fall out from the Impeachment motion because he is not sure which way it will go.

    Why not Singapore to visit Duminda....or already visited...?

    When the people in Sri Lanka are starving, It is not practial to visit USA to see a patient.

    patriot Friday, 23 November 2012 02:17 AM

    OMG ! this is very stupid, they are playing with peoples money.

    mohan Saturday, 24 November 2012 04:43 AM

    Many on this forum don't understand that such a visit would avoid lots of troubles for Sri Lanka. I support the president as he knows what is best for Sri Lanka right now.

    Happy Christmas shopping. Who pays for this private charter flight to the U.S. accompanied by how many shoppers on the delegation.?

    Patriot Friday, 23 November 2012 02:40 AM

    Do you want us to believe the second time! Oh come on, tell the truth.

    Paul Albert Friday, 23 November 2012 09:34 AM

    Duminda will say " who this guy ? "

    GonAliya Friday, 23 November 2012 02:45 AM

    I too can go to US-MR

    Patriot Friday, 23 November 2012 02:46 AM

    The president of course needs a good rest after attending to the welfare of Sri Lankan poor people for so long. Wish him good luck with his scheduled itinerary.

    singing fish Friday, 23 November 2012 09:59 AM

    This is his personnel visit and it is his right.

    Sherman Friday, 23 November 2012 10:27 AM

    MR always starts a storm in Sri Lanka and then runs away to another country. This time it is the trial of the Chief Justice. Look back and you will realise that this man creates havoc and then runs away to show that he is a angel but has done the damage.

    LBJ Sunday, 25 November 2012 05:48 AM

    you hit it right on the head. Why not go to Iran, China, Cuba, Venezuela for treatment.. These are the so called friends. At the end of the day USA is #1 to these people.

    kingasanga Friday, 23 November 2012 10:54 AM

    i can't understand this. One of my uncle visit US recently. So why MR can't / why SL president can't?

    sampath Sunday, 25 November 2012 06:31 AM

    MR is spending public money as the dowry which he received from Shiranthi.There must be a mechanism and transparency.But here all belongs to our MAHA RAJA.33,000 Gods will protect Sri Lanka & Sri Lankans.

    CP Friday, 23 November 2012 11:10 AM

    To visit a patient in USA by spending several lakhs. Can't accept.

    Kautilya Friday, 23 November 2012 04:40 AM

    To avoid fall out fro impeachment against CJ.

    patriot Friday, 23 November 2012 08:10 AM

    Sri Lankan hospitals and the doctors are below the standard for these politicos. They sling mud at US but run to them for
    for medical treatment. What hypocrites!!!

    Kamani Friday, 23 November 2012 04:44 AM

    We wish Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne get well soon.

    Patriot2 Friday, 23 November 2012 04:49 AM

    People this is a sarcastic comment. Click the thumbs up!

    Francis Friday, 23 November 2012 04:54 AM

    Sure to visit the Indian ambassador for breakfast

    wjks Saturday, 24 November 2012 12:17 AM

    MR may have been summoned by the US government for some reason. CJs case or the launching of the satellite. Both cases were postponed.

    Nodrog Friday, 23 November 2012 05:00 AM

    Dumb question...our monies of course! If they had to spend their money they wouldn't splurge it like this.

    Lone Ranger Friday, 23 November 2012 05:05 AM

    Only a few in this forum can understand what is said in between the lines.

    Matalan Friday, 23 November 2012 05:06 AM

    jack Friday, 23 November 2012 05:07 AM
