Just a quick one for now. ‘Commentary’ writer Michael Totten has a look at the latest story about who might have killed former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Totten writes: “Either Der Spiegel’s sources are taking the magazine for a ride, or the evidence against Hezbollah is authentic.” Totten also says: “The impression I've gotten is that it would be largely a political move, a way to nail Hezbollah – and by association Iran – while largely letting Syria off the hook in the interests of promoting this fantasy-world 'rapprochement' with Damascus. Everyone I've heard discussing this still believes Syria did it.”
Neglected entirely in his musings is the fact that the most likely culprit is Israel’s Mossad; Israel, after all, had the most to gain from the crime and Hezbollah the least while Syria would have lost a lot more than it gained.
Isn’t it odd how the ‘Der Spiegel’ piece hinting that the UN tribunal have pointed the finger at Hezbollah should come out now on the eve of the Lebanon elections. And not a quoted source to be seen to back up this monumental accusation.
