I hear these days that Rafiq Hariri was opposed in principle to the appointment or election of people with security/military backgrounds to public office in Lebanon. Not true. From the late 1980s onwards, Hariri worked hard to install his ally, the notorious Johny `Abduh--former head of the brutal Lebanese intelligence service in the war years--as president.
