I know everyone makes a mistake, but….

 this definitely takes the prize

The Tamil Tiger Rebels kidnapped 23 teenagers and 2 teachers but later freed them and suspended the guerillas involved

“It was a mistake by the field commanders” LTTE military spokesman Rasiah Ilanthiriyan said

He said the LTTE had already suspended the field commanders who had carried out the kidnappings.

Talk about a big OOPS !.

Imagine telling a teenager ” Sorry, I kidnapped you and scared you to death. It was just a dumb mistake. Go back and do whatever it was you were doing before in your life and forget that you got kidnapped”

What a life ! What a mistake !

  1. I find this quite humurous also. I think it is also terrible that the Tamil people even have got the point of having the Tigers, never mind they are still fighting after what 20+ years.

  2. Yes, but it is better than killing them, or holding them, or not knowing what to do with them 🙂 It takes courage to publicly admit a mistake and to correct yourself, especially when you are a terrorist organization with no defined accountability.

  3. @rams3s – kinda funny since it’s not happening to us but real sad too
    @ubuntonista – Totally agree with you. It does take courage to admit a mistake but really sad that these kids will be scarred for life – just because of one mistake that was not even made by them
