  1. Good information. By the way wasn't the FBI sent to Lebanon, presumably to 'help the investigation' i.e. to plant 'evidence' and to cover up other evidence they might find, right after the investigation ? I seem to recall that they did. The investigation in fact has been extremely shady and misdirected. CIA was in this too.

  2. Interesting. The Hariri assassination lost all immediacy the year after he died, when Israel got it's ass kicked by Hezbollah's asymmetrical warfare. Since they're not interested in repeating that little misadventure, they don't need pretext for any future invasions. It's good to see the truth soaking through, however.
