Jeffrey Feltman from 2007: bragging about US achievements in Lebanon

"What we have accomplished in Lebanon over the last two-plus years is impressive: the departure of the Syrian troops from Lebanon, the closure of Syrian Military Intelligence offices, parliamentary elections free of Syrian control, the establishment of the made-in-Lebanon cabinet of Fouad Siniora, the expansion of UNIFIL, the deployment of the LAF to the south, the creation of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, Paris III, etc.But Mr. Feltman needs to explain this to us: if Mr. Siniora's government was indeed "made-in-Lebanon" why is he bragging about it as part of the US achievements?  How does that work?
