Video: Why did Australia secretly back down from banning the Tamil Tigers?

FBI ( is an official site of the U.S. Federal Government, U.S. Department of Justice.)
As terrorist groups go, it has quite a résumé:

*Perfected the use of suicide bombers;
*Invented the suicide belt;
*Pioneered the use of women in suicide attacks;
*Murdered some 4,000 people in the past two years alone; and
*Assassinated two world leaders—the only terrorist organization to do so.

No, it’s not al Qaeda or Hezbollah or even HAMAS. The group is called the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) or the Tamil Tigers for short.

Needless to say, the Tamil Tigers are among the most dangerous and deadly extremists in the world. For more than three decades, the group has launched a campaign of violence and bloodshed in Sri Lanka, the island republic off the southern coast of India.
