War Crimes in Sri Lanka

Human Rights Watch’s anti-Sinhalese agenda once again on display:

A US State Department report on possible violations of the laws of war in Sri Lanka made public on October 22, 2009 shows the need for an independent international investigation, Human Rights Watch said today. The report details violations of the laws of war committed by both government forces and the separatist Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) from January through May 2009.

“The US State Department report should dispel any doubts that serious abuses were committed during the conflict’s final months,” said Brad Adams, Asia director at Human Rights Watch. “Given Sri Lanka’s complete failure to investigate possible war crimes, the only hope for justice is an independent, international investigation.”

Note how they cleverly mask their partisan, one-sided agenda behind a pretense of criticizing both sides in a fair-minded way. Very insidious.
