High-tech Lebanese Police. Ooooh. I have written before about the competence and skills of the Lebanese security forces. Here, the "Information Department" of the Internal Security Forces (Hariri Militia in Lebanon), issued a statement in which it said that "the Office of Combating Information Crimes and the Protection of Intellectual Property which is part of the Special Criminal Investigation section in the Judicial Police Unit"--I am not making this title up--has uncovered information to the effect that there exists internet fraud through the promise of Nigerian-based cash settlements. The statement added that the offices of the Internal Security Forces have recently upgraded their computers and they now all use the top of the line, Windows 95.
