No evidence has been offered by Washington or the Embassy to support this rumor, which like so many these days, originated with Israel's President
Shimon Peres and given credence in the US Congress and now the American Embassy. Inquiries of the American Ambassador at yesterday's talk by former
US Senator Bob Graham (R-Fla.) at the American University of Beirut, as to why the Embassy offered no satellite photos for the large easily detected outdated missiles were met mutely with a radiant and wide smile.
The US Embassy is further accused of feeding certain politicians including the Phalange and Lebanese Forces parties with disinformation to attack the Lebanese Resistance. For example, MP Samir Geagea regularly meets and communicates with Embassy personnel and the next day invariably launches another attack aimed at lowering the high 84% polling statistics showing the level of Lebanese support for the Resistance, led by Hezbollah, deterrence capability against Israel.
MP Mousawi again: "the U.S. embassy in Awkar is harming national reconciliation efforts through the policy of sabotage and fragmentation it is adopting in Lebanon and the region."
" It is Unclear if Syria Transferred Scuds to Hezbollah but we believe there is a Syrian "intent" to transfer Scud missiles to Hezbollah but there are doubts about whether the Scuds were delivered. " "We believe a transfer of some kind occurred but it is unclear if the rockets themselves have changed hands."
One hour later the State Department in Washington DC weighed in and appeared to settle the earlier false claim: " "We don't believe it happened" a senior U.S. State Department official said during a Sunday morning appearance on ABC news.
As of the afternoon of April 18, 2010 Hezbollah believes that the Lebanese government must review every bi-lateral agreement made with the US Embassy.
