I noticed that Bush has given an exclusive interview to the right-wing Lebanese LBC-TV. The interviewer is Paula Ya`qubian (who formerly worked for ART-TV and now works for LBC-TV, it seems). Her access to the White House may be due to her marriage to Muwaffaq Harb (director of Hurra-TV and Sawa Radio). In the interview he expressed outrage that Lebanon would allow a private militia to exist on its territory. The interviewer (who I have to admit is an excellent interviewer from what I saw of her in the past on ART) did not remind him that there are private militias in Iraq. I also notice that Bush cannot talk about Lebanon without having a silly smile on his face. I do not know why he finds the developments in Lebanon to be amusing.
