Latest Beirut Bombing Incident


Iran, Syria and Hezbollah had nothing to do with it!

by Stephen Lendman

First impressions suggest another "who done it" incident. Similar ones occurred many times before. Guilty parties often get named later. Key always is cui bono?

Media scoundrels never explain what's most important. Instead, headlines like "Blast in Beirut Is Seen as an Extension of Syria's War" circulate.

The New York Times said it "devastated a Christian neighborhood (Friday), killing an intelligence official long viewed as an enemy by neighboring Syria and unnerving a nation as Syria's sectarian-fueled civil war spills beyond its borders and threatens to engulf the region."

Instead of explaining what's likely going on, managed news misreporting like the above substitutes.

Intelligence head of Lebanon's Internal Security Forces, General Wissam al-Hasan, was killed. He appeared the likely target. He was the most high-profile death since former prime minister Rafiq Hariri's 2005 assassination. More on him below, what's really going on, and what's at stake.

At least seven others died. Information Minister Walid Daouk said 86 people were wounded. Buildings were heavily damaged.
