Anne Barnard's love affair with car bombs

Anne Barnard does not mention that the car bombs yesterday targeted--yet again--a civilian target, the office of the Red Crescent Society.  But the news maybe too embarrassing for her heroes in the armed Syrian groups so she ads this:  "A Lebanese news channel, citing its correspondent in Damascus, the capital, reported that the target of the attack may have been Prime Minister Wael al-Halki and that the bomb killed his driver outside the driver’s home, but those reports were not immediately confirmed."  But she does not tell its readers that the TV station that reported this is funded by the Hariri-Saudi apparatus and that she did not hear it first hand but her pro-Hariri translators told her this.
