The Economist is becoming increasing sloppy

I expected this from Reuters but not from the Economist: "Ostensibly the kingdom objects to Hizbullah, and therefore Iran’s influence, which they see as exemplified by Lebanon’s failure to condemn an attack in January on the Saudi embassy in Tehran."  In fact, Lebanon repeatedly condemned the attacks on Saudi embassy and consulate in Iran, but the Saudi regime wanted to attach a condemnation of Hizbullah as a "terrorist organization" as part of the Arab League statement.
