YUGE! HILLARY CLINTON, CHUCK SCHUMER AND OBAMA HAVE TIES TO THE TERRORISTS THAT COULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SRI LANKA ATTACK!
What’s Behind the Terrorist Attacks in Sri Lanka?
More than 200 people have been killed in simultaneous explosions at churches and hotels in Sri Lanka that also injured several hundred victims. The coordinated attacks took place on Sunday morning.
Sri Lanka has a history of violence.
Sri Lankan soldiers examine a wrecked vehicle at the site of a suicide bomb attack on a defense ministry convoy in Colombo on Dec. 1, 2006. Sri Lanka’s defense ministry secretary Gotabaye Rajapakse, the brother of the president, narrowly escaped when a suspected Tamil Tiger suicide bomber blew himself up, killing at least two army guards.
In 1948, Sri Lanka, then known as Ceylon, won independence from British rule. The country’s Sinhalese majority, countering what they saw as colonial favoritism toward Tamils, disenfranchised Indian Tamil migrants, leading to the groups’ neglect.
That led to the formation of an armed insurgent group known as the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in 1976. The group initially campaigned for a Tamil homeland in the country’s northeast. But the movement turned violent, with the LTTE attacking police and army forces as it sought greater national prominence. The Tigers became known for their suicide bombings, which they were among the first militants to pioneer, and deployment of child soldiers. In 1997, the U.S. State Department officially designated the LTTE a terrorist group.
Now you will start to see the connections...
I found this link on 8chan that said Hillary Clinton had ties to Sri Lanka terrorists: Tamil Tigers
This article is not new...
Gov. Christie's slammed Hillary at RNC over Boko Haram, but her Tamil Tiger connections need closer scrutiny
Chris Christie said the following...
”In Nigeria, Hillary Clinton amazingly fought for two years to keep an al Qaeda affiliate off the terrorist watch list. Now, what happens because of this reckless action by the candidate who is the self-proclaimed champion of women all around the world. These Al Qaida terrorists abducted hundreds of innocent young women two years ago. These school girls are still missing today.” Christie went on to ask: “ And what was the solution from the Obama-Clinton team?” and answered: “ A hashtag campaign,’ referring to her tweet (“bring back our girls) that followed the kidnapping of 200 Nigerian school girls in April 2014. ”
For a smoking gun on the Democratic nominee’s reckless pandering to terrorist groups, Governor Christie would have done better to look at her connections to a group the FBI said in 2008 was “among the most dangerous and deadly extremists in the world,” Sri Lanka’s Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, aka “Tamil Tigers.”
It’s a group for whom she’s advocated a “raisons d'être” approach, meaning, if the Tamil Tigers had committed the San Bernardino or the Orlando massacres, Hillary Clinton would be OK with it.
This “nuanced” approach to justifying suicide bombings and child soldiers came out in an interview she had with the British national daily The Guardian on October 23, 2007. At the time, Mrs. Clinton was running against then Senator Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination in the 2008 primary.
Listen to this video of Hillary Clinton in 2007 giving a pass to Tamil Tigers, a group responsible for dozens of suicide bombing attacks on civilians...
Hillary said the following...
“Well, I believe that terrorism is a tool that has been utilized throughout history to achieve certain objectives. Some have been ideological, others territorial. The bottom line is, you can't lump all terrorists together. And I think we've got to do a much better job of clarifying what are the motivations, the raisons d'être of terrorists,” she responded.
Clinton’s approach was clearly at odds with US policy. The Tamil Tigers had been on the State Department’s designated list of foreign terrorist organizations (FTOs) and waged decades-long terror campaigns for separatism. As the FBI noted, the Tigers had “quite a resume” having:
- Perfected the use of suicide bombers;
- Invented the suicide belt;
- Pioneered the use of women in suicide attacks;
- Murdered some 4,000 people in the past two years alone; and
- Assassinated two world leaders—the only terrorist organization to do so.
On November 15, 2007, just 3 weeks after the interview, the US Treasury stepped in to strip the Tamil Tigers of its main funding source in the US by naming the Maryland-based Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) under Executive Order 13224.
Tamil Tiger supporter Raj Rajaratnam bankrolled the terror outfit to the tune of $3.5 million. The hedge fund billionaire who is serving a 11-year term in federal prison for insider trading launched Tamils for Hillary Clinton to fundraise for her 2008 presidential bid. The group sought Clinton's help to get the Tigers removed from the State Department's list of foreign terrorist organizations.
Regardless, of its intensive terror campaign, candidate Clinton continued warming up to the Tamil Tigers. Among those seeking Clinton’s help to get the group removed from the US State Department’s designated list was Tamils for Clinton. In December 2007, she reportedly managed to get the fundraising group a meeting with then former President Clinton to enable it to press its case on behalf of removing the Tigers from the State Department’s FTO list.
With the Tamil Tigers, there’s Raj Rajaratnam, the hedge fund billionaire who is currently serving time in federal prison after being found guilty in 2011 for what is considered the biggest insider trading racket in the US.
Rajaratnam contributed as much as $3.5 million to the Tigers’ fundraising arm, the Maryland-based Tamil Rehabilitation Organization which was shut down in 2007. For his role in bankrolling terror, Rajaratnam is currently being sued in US court by Sri Lankan victims and families of those killed in several bombings carried out by the Tigers.
The Wall Street tycoon and his wife were major contributors to the DSCC and to a number of individual Democratic congressional and senate campaigns. Recipients of the Rajararatnam largesse included Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and the presidential campaigns of Mrs. Clinton and Barack Obama. Rajaratnam also contributed $30,800 to President Obama’s inauguration fund.
Rajaratnam served as a major trustee of the American India Foundation (AIF), founded in 2001 at the initiative of Bill Clinton. It so happens that several AIF trustees ended up being accused of or convicted of insider trading, campaign finance violations, and other illegal activities. Among them, hotelier Sant Chatwal who, pled guilty in 2014 to a conspiracy to violate campaign finance laws. He was accused of illegally funneling $180,000 through straw donors to political candidates, including Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.
Federal investigators reportedly recorded Chatwal talking to an informant about using contributions to influence politicians. “Without that nobody will even talk to you. When they are in need of money…the money you give then they are always for you,” he said. “That’s the only way to buy them, get into the system. … What, what else is there? That’s the only thing.”
In the final days of the war in May 2009, with the Sri Lankan military closing in on the LTTE forces who were cornered into a sliver of land and holding thousands of Tamil civilians hostage, Clinton tried a last ditch attempt to save the terror outfit from certain defeat. In the cache of her emails released last year by the State Department were some from the last days of the war which indicate that Clinton sympathizing with the Tigers had been pressuring the International Monetary Fund to withhold funds from the Sri Lankan government. An email dated May 4, 2009 suggests IMF displeasure at the Secretary of State “ordering/telling” the IMF to suspend crucial funding. The email also suggests that Clinton stepped on Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s toes in her effort to save the Tamil Tigers from defeat.
In its latest Country Report on Terrorism, the State Department warns that despite the group’s military defeat, the LTTE’s financial network of support continued operations in 2015. “The group used its international contacts and the large Tamil diaspora in North America, Europe, and Asia to procure weapons, communications, funds, and other needed supplies. The group employed charities as fronts to collect and divert funds for its activities.”
Tamils for Hillary Clinton continues to actively support Clinton’s 2016 presidential bid and has an audio recording of the Guardian interview on its Facebook page. On the same page, a reader questions (in Tamil) if America actually supports the Tigers, and gets the following response: “Hillary supports LTTE.”

Tamil Tigers: Suicide Bombing Innovators
Robert Pape, director of the Chicago Project on Suicide Terrorism, examines the decades-long war in Sri Lanka with the Tamil Tigers. The group is reported to have invented the suicide vest, and made suicide bombing their trademark.
