Edit proof?[edit]

Why is possible to edit this article? This man is no different than Chairman Mao, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Assad of Syria, Pol Pot, Fidel Castro and a dozen other despots we've seen over the last century. Surely the biography should be expanded to include his policies of ethnic cleansing, genocide and crimes against humanity, rather than a diluted mention of "Allegations of War Crimes." He runs the nation very much like Saddam Hussein ran his, using family in important positions and crushing political opponents with instant imprisonment (or worse) for challenging his power. He threw UN observers out of the country virtually under threat of murder before the final erasure of the Tamil. The sources are the ones already cited, which include face-to-face interviews with the very same UN staff forced to flee to save their own skin. The toothlessness of the UN leadership also needs exposure. All they seem able to do is call "foul" and then run away, when they should be filing charges at the Hague at an absolute minimum. The "silence" of this "Wiki aricle" is deafening. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.62.254.20 (talk) 07:23, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Everything against him are nothing but allegations - there is no undeniable proof of any of the allegations made - everything is uncorroborated. So they remain allegations. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 103.247.49.171 (talk) 16:19, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

Edit request[edit]

WikiLeaks made public secret US cables (Contents of the United States diplomatic cables leak (Sri Lanka)) from 2009–10, stating that American diplomats including Patricia Butenis believed that Mahinda Rajapaksa was responsible for targeting Tamil civilians (who were held as human shields by the LTTE) resulting in their alleged deaths and of captured LTTE fighters at the end of the war with the LTTE. The cable also states that (as in any war, where the responsibility for casualties rests with the supreme commander of the war effort), responsibility for many of the alleged crimes rests with the country's senior civilian and military leadership, including President Rajapaksa, his brothers and General Fonseka.[9]
