Not in the US press. An American delegation from the US embassy was planning to visit the village of `Adshit near Nabatiyyah in South Lebanon today. On their way there, (escorted by "elite" US internal security troops, i.e. troops highly trained in serving tea and Hummus to foreign occupiers) the delegation was informed that the people of the region are outraged at the visit, and that the people of `Adshit don't want the American delegation to visit them. The delegation hesitated, and the internal security forces held several journalists who were following the convoy, and then they turned back having learned of Lebanese public opinion what they did not know before.
