(Lanka-e-News – 25.March.2018, 11.45PM) Ronen Bergman is an Israel investigative journalist who launched a book on 23 rd January 2018. The title of that book was ‘ Rise and kill first : The secret history of Israel’s targeted assassinations’ . The content of the book related to the murders committed by Mossad Organization , and reasons for those crimes.
It is common knowledge that Israel was possessed of the most feared ‘hit squad’ alias murder outfit in the world. It is the personal view of the writer that such a squad is necessary for a country for its national security, though an armed intelligence division of a country should not be concealed and it must be an outfit which is a duly established Institution operating according to accepted norms .
In a country the intelligence division along with its affiliated armed squadrons is an autonomous Institution of the forces and a civil department of the Think tank. This is a department that functions under the orders of the leader of the country while the decisions are not taken by a single individual , but rather on the analysis and recommendations made by an Intelligence Council and with the latter’s permission.
The decision taken by the Intelligence Council is intimated to the leader of the country , and after the permission is obtained it is implemented. Moreover , there is a fundamental guiding principle that governs the Intelligence Bureau of a country .
That principle is concerned with the national security and the grounds interwoven with it , and has nothing to do with the disillusionments or allied issues of a state leader .
CIA -the American Central intelligence agency , Mossad of Israel, RAW of India, FIA of Pakistan, ASIS –secret intelligence service of Australia, AISI- the Internal information and security agency of Italy , CIRO- Intelligence research Bureau of Japan’s cabinet, BND –the Federal Intelligence service of Germany , M15 and M16 of Britain or any other recognized intelligence organization functions strictly following this basic tenet.
Recently , Michael Wolf released a book entitled ‘Fire and fury’ against Donald Trump. Since this was in relation to Trump’s frustrations , and not national security , the CIA did not concern itself with that , and did not consider it as a ground to deal the deadly blow to Wolf. This illustrated the close binding within the intelligence division and principles they faithfully follow.
Therefore their agendas do not target political opponents and media personnel as their victims. There is also no room to take base decisions too against Trump or such politicians, and even if it was said , and such a decision was taken , the officers will not go ahead on that . Owing to this the national security division does not face challenges from the political power quarters.
The story unfolds thus …
With the appointment of Gotabaya as the defense secretary , an ‘armed intelligence unit’ was commenced based on a cabinet paper. This unit was under Kapila Hendavitharane.
An armed intelligence unit created within a definitive framework, based on policies , and a disciplinary code is a country’s prestigious unit. However Gota is not prepared to accept that the armed intelligence unit was established by him. Neither is Hendavitharane prepared to accept that he was the second in command in the hierarchy of that unit . Understanding this attitude of theirs is of course is very easy .
2700 murders were committed by Mossard in 1970 . Finding this in the internet is easy.
99% of Mossard murders were committed on grounds of national security and confrontations. The ‘National intelligence division’ of Gotabaya during the 9 years committed nearly 130 murders . What is significant to note here is , 99 % of these murders were committed based on his personal grounds. There was no Intelligence council for Gota’s national intelligence division , and all decisions were taken singly based on political reasons , and the victims were targeted on political vendetta. For instance when editor late Lasantha Wickremetunge exposed Gota’s monumental fraud involving billions of dollars on the MiG jet deal, he was liquidated. This exposure had nothing to do with national security , and only pertained to issues revolving around Gota and his frustration .
Gotabaya established this ‘National Intelligence division’ via cabinet paper in 2006 , and Hendavitharane was appointed as its chief. This was not part of the military but was a civil Institution and Hendavitharane’s office was housed in the defense ministry. It is evident from this arrangement , Hendavitharne did not report to Fonseka.
In the cabinet paper then it was mentioned , this new intelligence division is being established to bring the State Intelligence Service (SIS) , Military intelligence service (MIS) and various police intelligence divisions under one commanding hierarchy . Many who are concerned about the country believed this was on the same lines of the popular RAW organization . It is in this scenario the writer and many others came together while the ‘National Intelligence division’ , yet under Hendavitharane it turned into a ‘Trojan horse’.
There was no Intelligence council constituted of recognized reputed individuals of the security or geopolitical spheres to take decisions.
The armed unit was created painting a picture in diverse ways that it is for effective management of the SIS, MIS and various Police divisions for security of Colombo. But in fact it were licensed underworld gangs that were spawned.
Active members of the forces , retired members of the forces , a number of groups including those of of Karuna , Pillaiyan and Douglas Devananda , were operating under the commands of Hendavitharane.
Their primary target was brutal political murders . Resentment naturally began mounting locally and internationally against the murderers. To counter that what Hendavitharane did was liquidating the murderers to wipe out evidence in order to safeguard the despot .
The use of the new intelligence division by Gota to silence his opponents spelled doom to the country and proved a great tragedy. Making use of the spray of bullets protecting Gota , he silenced the adversaries. In order to suppress evidence , more than 13 members of the Intelligence division were killed. Over 30 members who carried out the illegal orders of Gota ended in remand prison. Another group ended up on all fours at the fourth floor. Some left the country. Some others disappeared.
If the National intelligence division which was established via a cabinet paper had stuck by the principal aim which was national security for which it came into existence, this disaster would not have struck the motherland. If that aim was genuinely pursued that would have grown into a gigantic tree and provided shade to the nation. It is very unfortunate what happened was the converse. The sins and crimes of Henda and Gota were fastened on the low rung officers, and so called war specialist Gota dealt direct blows with a club to the head of the Intelligence division.
The citizens must be by now having a sound unerring understanding of these Veddahs .They surely must by now be aware of the true colors of these blood lusty individuals who are vainly dreaming to become ‘Kings’
