The Tamil Tigers, another name for the LTTE have
been listed as a foreign terrorist organisation by the United States

Agent, Haniffa Bin Osman had pleaded guilty Thursday April 5 to the
charges of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated
foreign terrorist organisation and to money laundering.
Bogus assumptions, failed attempts leave Tigers in jitters
Wide publicity given by the LTTE to the failed
air attack on the Katunayake air base has also created friction
within Tiger terrorists. Reports from Wanni said Sea Tiger leader
Soosai had taken it too personally. According to intelligence
sources, Soosai have had a crucial meeting with other Sea Tiger
leaders in Puthukuduiruppu in Mullaitivu on March 31. Soosai has
stressed that they too should do something significant to boost the
image of the Sea Tigers.
'Operation USA' - A silent fund-raiser
A spokesman who surfaced from a sea of placards
of slogans ("Operation scam USA", "TRO terror operations", Down with
LTTE terrorism etc.) mentioned that the TRO was removed from the
list of charitable organisations in UK by the British Charitable
Commission, the country's regulatory body for charitable
institutions, for failure to provide any explanations as to the
provenance of some of the funds received from US and Canada.
