We never saw that coming …
Well, the much awaited UN report on the investigation behind the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri is out and what a shocker it is! Chief United Nations investigator, Detlev Mehlis concluded:
Given the infiltration of Lebanese institutions and society by the Syrian and Lebanese intelligence services working in tandem, it would difficult to envisage a scenario whereby such a complex assassination plot could have been carried out without their knowledge.
Little Lord Fauntle-Assad is in for some heat. The UN Security Council is scheduled to discuss the report next Tuesday and may consider the imposition of diplomatic and economic sanctions against Syria. Hopefully Bashar will get some much needed pressure and stop supporting those Hizbollah clowns.
Syria is totally going to pot. Syria’s Interior Minister Ghazi Kenaan committed suicide last week, and all indications are that we are about to witness some serious heat coming down. One witness said that pro-Syrian Lebanese General Mustafa Hamdan ended an October, 2004 conversation by saying: “We are going to send him on a trip, bye, bye Hariri.” I think it might be safe to now say “bye, bye Bashar Assad.”
The above cited Jerusalem Post article is pretty good. You can also read more in this NYT report.
