To Die in Lebanon

MEMRI has the final words of journalist Jubran Tweini: “…Lebanon Never Was and Never Will Be Part of Syria…” Let’s hope he’s right, because he clearly paid for it. Meanwhile, from the NYT:

The German prosecutor conducting the United Nations investigation into the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri of Lebanon said today that fresh evidence reinforced his earlier judgment that Syria’s intelligence services were behind the killing and that Syrian officials were obstructing his investigation.

Here’s a thought. When Saddams’s trial (see the blogjam now) is over, why don’t they just keep the court open and try Assad? I know – wrong country. But the Syrians seem to be running over the border to Iraq all the time anyway.
