Back in the Headlines

Life was getting a little sedate lately, but we’re back in the headlines again. It seems Hezbollah is now directly linked to the Hariri murder. Somehow I had heard this theory already before, it is not new, but it is bound to spice things up a bit some 2 weeks before the parliamentary elections.
The story is dropped by the German magazine Der Spiegel, and it is an interesting read, but I do remember that when I was in Journalism College, Der Spiegel was seen as a rather ‘sensational’ publication, which in general is not a positive characteristic in the media. So there’s a distinct smell of fish here. The author of the article, Erich Follath, also published a book titled; ‘Who shot Jesus Christ’. That one is fiction, though.

Hezbollah, equally predictable, has denied the charges. And the saga continues. This is better than Desperate Housewives.

This is too much. We've all heard this before and the investigators (during round one of these allegations) completely denied it and now we are back to square one. Now that the Generals have been freed, I guess it was time to start from the very beginning. Shall we expect a new revelation from Saddiq next week?
