    LTTE's Indian Links and Rajiv Gandhi Assassination 

    Rajiv Gandhi Assassination(India Today)
    The mother of all apologies
    "The biggest international misadventure in Asia since the end of the war the IPKF military putsch into Sri Lanka. Diametrically opposed to every tenet of Indian foreign policy till then, this move by Rajiv Gandhi was not merely a blunder; it was a sin because the Prime Minister chose to be double-faced about it."Manmohan Singh
    Facts since revealed, in particular by the Jain Commission's halfway-house report, have shown that the same Prime Minister who despatched India's brave soldiers to fight in the jungles of Jaffna was simultaneously maintaining intelligence-level contacts with the LTTE. This led to giving an advantage to the LTTE while keeping our own soldiers on a tight leash an extraordinarily treacherous line for a country's prime minister to adopt against his own military men.
