    Welcome back! Investigate blast @China overseas holdings and loot @HKBC, a Chinese bank!

    This does not refer to the US trip Only, but overseas trips. Of course out of all must be the highest number of delegation. What a waste of money on a mission ineffective and unproductive.

    Obamas entourage does not need to book hotels in NY since its his own home country. he just needs to get to his chopper and get to the white house once he is done. silly arguments

    Shiham Wednesday, 29 September 2010 09:43 AM

    MR is the boss, he can build our motherland, don"t worry HE , dogs are barking

    Back in the days Ranil had photos, only photos.

    malkanthi Wednesday, 29 September 2010 07:23 AM

    Nor could make any headlines, the protests by SF supporters must have spoiled the entire trip!!

    kris Wednesday, 29 September 2010 06:47 AM

    pls correct it cost 1500 million.

    pwc Wednesday, 29 September 2010 06:42 AM

    Who cares individual's impression. As a president he is responsible for the whole country. Not only for the UNP supporters !!!

    Bonda Wednesday, 29 September 2010 06:22 AM

    Wow what a bunch of lucky fellows..hope we voters get a chance to see all those places in our life time

    Yehiya-Doha Wednesday, 29 September 2010 02:54 AM

    Thanx

    Ranjan Wednesday, 29 September 2010 05:58 AM

    Only one has being accounted for . no news about the other 129 including Sri ranga who promised to uplift the living standards of the hill country population.

    Wasantha Wednesday, 29 September 2010 05:55 AM

    Do not know whether he is in happy mood or not. However he was not called to have a photograph with Obama, that means MR has to think twice before comment on matters pertinent to international affairs with special reference to US.

    B.B. Marasingha Wednesday, 29 September 2010 05:23 AM

    Can one make sure that all 130 returned.

    Lakmal Wednesday, 29 September 2010 05:16 AM

    No difference in Returned or no returned

    faizalsamsu Wednesday, 29 September 2010 05:14 AM

    wow... meaning MR's 20 minutes useless speech worth for 150 million... wat a waste...:)

    Bluff Bluff Wednesday, 29 September 2010 05:03 AM

    What about the rest whom we missed so much during the past several weeks?

    Dhiga Wednesday, 29 September 2010 04:33 AM

    Mr Yehiya, Beautiful reply!

    Dinesh Wednesday, 29 September 2010 03:38 AM

    Anything gain with the so much of tourists taken to NYC. Please do not waste public funds like this for whims and fancies. Use these money to build rail gates to avoid accidents and save lives of innocent people. During last month 5 people die including a child near 18th Post rail gate in Katunayake. Wish our rulers will act wisely in future.

    don Wednesday, 29 September 2010 03:35 AM

    job well done!

    ultimate Wednesday, 29 September 2010 03:28 AM

    Heading should be. "president and SL representatives returned"

    JAMES Wednesday, 29 September 2010 03:15 AM

    what a extravaganza ? what a show off ? what a waste
    for 20 minutes talk addressing to almost empty chamber.
    100 jumbo entourage
    4 floors booked at most expensive hotel in NY
    (when Obama`s entourage booked only 1 floor )
    Limousines first class airfares other extravagances ,sight seeing
    This is what do you call abuse of power.
    If president and close advisers and family less than 20
    We don`t mind. This is obscene waste when countrymen suffering.

    I am not impressed President.
