Though a much smaller number of house representatives cannot possibly represent the American public view, unfortunately, it is always possible to distract attention from real issues in a far off land such as in Sri Lanka.
The Sri Lankan current administration is said to be spending millions of dollors on private PR firms around the world in its attempt to sanitize its role in the alleged war crimes and brutality against the minority civilians during the ended conflict. It is also reported that the representatives of a PR firm accompanied the Congressmen during their recent visit to Sri Lanka. Some media reported that the local members from the Sri Lankan community contributed to the Congressmen campaign fund. Sri Lankan administration has also, in the past, sought immunity for its military officials by deploying them in the diplomatic positions worldwide.
